WPT Prague / Unibet Open Riga start today

Thursday, 1 December 2011

It promises to be a very busy weekend on the European tournament circuit with major events in the Czech Republic and Latvia.

WPT Prague is the opening event of the 12-day Prague Poker Festival and a host of big names including Chris Moorman, James Akenhead, Tony G and November Niner Eoghan O'Dea are in town for the €3,500 buy-in event which starts this afternoon.

A big field is also expected for the final stop on the 2011 Unibet Open Tour in Riga which also gets under way this lunchtime. Our own Alex 'Pickleman' Rousso is riding high in the Unibet Open leaderboard standings just behind Holland's Pim Van Riet and Belgian Laurens de Smet and could top the list with a deep run at in the Latvian capital.

We'll have updates from both events (and the GUKPT Grand Final) so be sure to join us throughout the weekend.
