Our good friends over at the Metropol Grand Casino in Portoroz, Slovenia have announced a festival to banish the winter blues. Why are we mentioning it on UK PokerNews? Well because Portoroz is becoming very popular with travelling English and Irish players and being dubbed as Monte Carlo without the Price Tag and the best place for mid stakes players to play and spend a weekend in luxury without the expense of an EPT.
It also helps that the place is full of Italian players.
