WPT London Confirmed
We brought you news last month that the World Poker Tour were finally planning a London stop this year. This has now been confirmed and the WPT London Poker Classic will take place between August 29 to September 5 at the Palm Beach Casino and Mayfair Hotel. The £5,300 event will have a field of up to 400 runners.
“London is a great poker destination and has always been a major target in our ongoing expansion,” said WPT President Adam Pliska. “We’re thrilled to have found amazing partners in The Palm Beach Casino, Genting UK and The May Fair Hotel London. This is sure to be a highly anticipated WPT event on the international schedule.”
What big news this is for UK poker, when you consider that the WSOPE and EPT London immediately follow it, we have a genuine triple crown in the capital in just over one month. Vegas really does take second place to London in September.
