The London Poker Circuit Returns
News now from the soap opera that is the London Poker Circuit with the announcement that they are returning to the live poker scene. You may recall less than a month ago they announced they were closing down and now they have unveiled they are back for another crack at the whip at a new venue. They will now be a regular fixture at the Sportsman Casino in Marble Arch, starting with their 'Fifty Fifty' one day event on the 23rd of October. The first big and welcome change is that the prizepool is guaranteed, at £5000 for this £50+£15 plus one rebuy and one add on event. The second big change is that now that the event is in a casino, rather than a hotel, they can now host cash games. They will also be holding a super stack main event starting in 2010, which will be £300+£30 with a 15000 starting stack.
No doubt changes will be made again, because this is a tour that has had more facelifts than Burt Reynolds, but although they might be flaky in that respect, the customer feedback from those who have played in these events has been superb and the people involved have worked really hard, so we really hope the London Poker Circuit can finally find their place on the UK circuit.
