Torbay Poker Festival starts today

Friday, 2 November 2012

Poker players will be heading to the Riviera this weekend and by Riviera we mean English rather than French. The Genting Casino in Torquay is the venue for the three-day Torbay Poker Festival which gets under way later today.

The action begins with a £100+£10 Scalp Event at 5pm with £75 of the buy-in going into the main prize pool and the remainder to be won via knock outs.

The serious business starts at 2pm on Saturday with a £500+£50 Main Event which features a guaranteed prize pool of £50,000. The two-day event will draw to a close on Sunday.

Rounding things off at 7pm on Sunday is a £50 + 5 No Limit Hold'em tournament with one rebuy & add-on available.

A healthy field is expected including a sprinkling of Hendon Mobsters who will be playing in Saturday's Main Event.
