“Since June we have asked poker players up and down the country what they wanted in a UK tournament,” said Gary Oakes Product Manager at Genting Poker.“The feedback was very clear. Many players can neither afford to enter or dedicate the time to play in an EPT or WSOPE format event. They told us they wanted a weekend event, affordable entry, lots of added money and a terrific location. So, we have gone out and created just that with the Genting Poker Players Championship.”
Players start with 8,000 chips but you can top up to 10,000 by raking £5 or winning your seat online at one of the clubs online partners. Check out www2.gentingpoker.com for more details.
