Major MTTs Heading to London

Major MTTs Heading to London

Tuesday, 27 January 2015

Although the eyes of the poker world are currently focused on the Aussie Millions, the next couple of months will see a slew of tournament action go down in the UK's capital, London.

Kicking off a jam-packed few weeks for mid-stakes grinders across the UK and Europe will be the WPT's annual trip to Aspers Casino in London. Sponsored by partypoker and featuring three events with a combined guarantee of £300,000, WPTN(ational) London will get underway on February 12 and run through until February 15.

In an effort to open up the tournament to as many players as possible, the event will boast an accumulator structure which means, for the princely sum of £200, entrants will get 20,000 chips and varying levels.

Day 1 will see players compete across 30-miunute levels which will then rise to 40-minute levels on Day 2. For those that make it through to the final session, the organisers have allocated 6-minute levels to ensure as much play possible.

As well as the Main Event, WPTN London players can also take part in the £110 WPTN Experience and the £55 Turbo Charged Deepstack which will offer 15-minute blind levels.

Once the WPT's latest London festival has come to a close, PKR's annual live event will move into action. Taking place between March 20 and March 22, PKR Live will also take place inside Aspers Casino and offer players a £50,000 prizepool for an affordable £300 buy-in.

Satellites are currently taking place on PKR for less than $1 and anyone that makes it through to the Main Event will be treated to a 30,000 chip starting stack and 40-minute levels.

If you're a fan of MTT action, then make sure you head down to London in the coming weeks for two of the best mid-stakes tournaments in Europe.
