The European Poker Tour London festival may be in full swing but for many aspiring poker players the entry fee for the vast majority of the tournaments being held there are simply out of their bankrolls. However, just as EPT London comes to an end there is a great mini-series being held north of the border in bonny Scotland.
Running from Friday 7 October until Sunday , the 2011 Scottish Poker Championships makes a return to the Gala Maybury Casino in the Scottish capital, Edinburgh. There are only three events taking place but they have a fantastic structure and have buy-ins that are affordable for the vast majority of poker players.
Anyone wanting to pre-register for any of the events at the 2011 Scottish poker Championships should either visit the casino on South Maybury Road or call them on +44(0)131-338-4444 to ensure they have a seat reserved.
