London is currently hosting international athletes competing for gold at the Olympics, but in a few short weeks, a new group of competitors will flock to London: poker players.
That’s because the London Poker Festival kicks off on September 1, 2012, continuing until the end of the month. The Festival features almost 80 tournaments of various sizes and poker games, located over eight different card rooms in London. Events feature buy-ins as low as 100 pounds up to several thousand pounds. The festival also includes a variety of “main events” from popular tours, such as the LCI UK Poker Tour, the Unibet Open London, the Big Bluff Five-O, the GUKPT, the English Poker Open, and the September Festival Main Event.
Looks like it’s a season of champions in London.
