Virgin Festival of Poker returns to Newcastle

Virgin Festival of Poker returns to Newcastle

Friday, 6 March 2009

Top of the bill on Virgin’s second visit to Newcastle will be the 2 day, 150 euro buy-in main event. Virgin have sweetened the prize pool by £5,000 and are offering a further £1,000 worth of bounties and prizes for those qualifiers who manage to bust out pros Nick Wealthall, Maria Demetriou, Shelley Rubenstein and Kara Scott. A total prize fund of £32,000 is expected.

Organisers also promise plenty of side action including bar games, drinks promotions and a Nintendo Wii bowling tournament.

Entry is by qualification only. It’s still possible to enter though by winning one of the £20 buy-in pre festival tournaments at Aspers Casino on Mondays at 8pm throughout March. Two seats are also up for grabs in a £100 freezeout on Saturday 28th March.
