Stip Poker Championships in London
One of the star attractions of the inaugural London Poker Festival in September is the uniquely staged Baller Strip Poker Championships, and organisers have now announced that the event will take place at legendary Stringfellows gentlemen’s club in London’s Covent Garden on September 21st.
However, poker players needn’t worry about their modesty, as the new format of Baller Strip Poker rules dictate that Stringfellows girls will be doing the undressing on their behalf. Each player will be assigned a Stringfellows dancer, who will be wearing items of clothing to be removed on the player’s behalf.
The event will raise money in support of cancer awareness charities. More information about the event can be found at here.
Vote in the British Poker Awards
In case you missed it, voting has now opened for the first ever British Poker Awards in London in September. Pokernews are getting in on the action and have sponsored the Best UK Poker Forum category. To place your vote go to www.thebritishpokerawards.com
