PokerStars releases EPT London schedule

13 Aug 2009

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The PokerStars.com European Poker Tour (EPT) London Poker Festival will run from September 30 - October 7, 2009 at the Hilton Metropole Hotel. The event will be the biggest PokerStars EPT Poker Festival to date with 16 separate events scheduled, including; the return of the popular three-day EPT London £20k High Roller, the first-ever £2k European 8-Game Championship, and numerous lower buy-in events, including a £500 8-Game event, a £1k Pot Limit Omaha High-Low event, a £1k No Limit 6-Max event and a £2k PLO event. This will follow two weeks of preliminary events throughout London; including the European Poker Championships at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino, the PokerStars.com London EPT £5k Main Event will once again cement London as the poker capital of Europe this autumn.

John Duthie, EPT Chief Executive said "The PokerStars.com EPT London Poker Festival will have a rich mix of games and buy-ins to cater to the most players possible in a compelling schedule - by poker players, for poker players. This continues on the fundamental programming shift made for last season's EPT Grand Final where we tried to create the best opportunity for all our players, not just higher-rollers, to play a wide mix of poker games and formats at a variety of accessible buy-ins."

The PokerStars.com EPT London Poker Festival is being run in conjunction with the Grosvenor Victoria Casino. This year's event has been moved up the street to the London Hilton Metropole Hotel, which is located 300 metres from the Grosvenor Victoria Casino, in order to accommodate the increasing amount of players expected. Last year almost 600 players competed in the PokerStars EPT London Main Event, with first-place winner Michael Martin of the USA taking home a £1 million prize. This year the new venue will accommodate more than 800 players, have an estimated overall prize pool of £4 million and players from across the UK and around the world are invited to compete for it on the felts of London.

There will be 28 cash tables running throughout the festival at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino and one table tournament and single table satellites running daily at the Hilton Metropole. For all PokerStars.com EPT London Poker Festival events, players can buy-in directly from the PokerStars client and also receive pay-outs into their PokerStars accounts.

Online satellites for the PokerStars EPT London Poker Festival are running now on PokerStars, with buy-ins from as little as $2.22 or 111 FPPs. Players who qualify on PokerStars don't just win their seat; they also win hotel accommodation (or cash equivalent) and spending money as part of their prize package.
