January is nearly over and for many of us, it marks the end of not quite having to scrimp and save as much after the Christmas period. So we thought we would have a look at some of the best value tournaments on offer this weekend, both live and online, for you to take a shot with your hard earned bankroll as you are looking to make a big score in 2008.
January Sales – Brighton
One of the two big festivals taking place this weekend is the appropriately named January Sales at the Rendevous Casino in Brighton. Tonight sees a £220 freeze out from 7pm and tomorrow is the start of the main event. The two day event is a £530 Double Chance freeze out which starts at 6.30 pm and continues on Sunday with the final table.
Luton Grand Challenge
The other big festival takes place in one of the busiest poker towns in the UK at the Grosvenor Casino in Luton. A £550 freeze out starts tonight at 8pm with the final tomorrow. Then it is on to the £750 main event – another two day double chance freeze out. For those of you that need more than two chances, there is a £100 freeze out for everyone that busts on the Sunday.
