Tomorrow not only marks the start of a brand new month but it is also the day that the Genting Poker Series lunches in Birmingham.

Star City Casino is the venue for the first leg of the inaugural Genting Poker Series and it promises to be an absolute cracker. For just £400+£30, players will receive 25,000 chips and a quite frankly brilliant blind structure that sees the blinds start at just 25/50, with steady increases every 60-minutes.

Each of the Genting Poker Series Main Events has a guaranteed prize pool of £100,000 which means taking one down is going to be worth between £25,000 and £30,000 plus a £1,600 seat to the season ending Grand Final, all for a £430 buy-in.

A bumper crowd is expected in Birmingham for the series' launch, a crowd that should include the Genting Poker sponsored Hendon Mob (Barny Boatman, Ross Boatman, Joe Beevers, Ram Vaswani) and the recent winner of the PokerStars Sunday Million James Akenhead.
