Last month we brought news of a possible World Poker Tour event in the UK. Those rumours have been confirmed with the news that the WPT London Poker Classic will take place from 29th August to 5th September.

The Palm Beach casino at the Mayfair Hotel will host the £5,300 Main Event with the field capped at 400 runners.

“London is a great poker destination and has always been a major target in our ongoing expansion,” said WPT President Adam Pliska. “We’re thrilled to have found amazing partners in The Palm Beach Casino, Genting UK and The May Fair Hotel London. This is sure to be a highly anticipated WPT event on the international schedule.”
