Christmas Poker Festivals Preview 0001

Yes, you can no longer deny it; the adverts are on the TV, the songs are on the radio and everyone at work is arguing about their holiday entitlement – It's Christmas. For many poker players, Christmas is all about getting bought another box of poker chips from Debenhams for the third year running, but it is also the start of the Christmas Poker Festivals.

What makes a Christmas poker festival different from any other poker festival? Not much to be honest; there is just tinsel everywhere, the buffet includes turkey and bad beats are met with an ironic 'Merry Christmas', rather than a 'how could you call with that you donk?'. But every now and then, the combination of booze and locals can make these juicy little games.
