Tournament Poker Heads to Hippodrome

Wednesday, 30 January 2013

London's newest poker venue, The Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square, will be dipping its toes into the tournament poker waters next week by hosting its first ever MTT.

The recently refurbished venue will play host to the two-day Winter Classic, a £25,000 guaranteed affair, that starts at 7.30pm on Friday 8th February 2013. The buy-in for the tournament is £250+£25 with a single re-entry allowed. Players will start with stacks of 25,000 chips with a half-hour clock.

Online Satellites are running every Thursday and Sunday at 8.10pm at PokerStars and can be found at Events>PSLive>London.

Live satellites are on offer at the Hippodrome's Poker Deck with £27.50 Sit n Go's running daily at noon. Two seats are guaranteed in a £27.50 Super Satellite at 3pm on Friday 8th February.

The Winter Classic is likely to be the first of many tournaments to take place at The Hippodrome after the venue secured a partnership deal with PokerStars late last year.

New players can try and qualify for the Winter Classic at PokerStars with a first deposit bonus of up to $500. Sign up here.
