One of the best mid-stakes poker tournaments in London, the monthly £300+£30 Fox Poker Club Main Event, gets underway at 1400 today in the heart of London.
The Fox Poker Club Main Event is a two-day tournament that regularly attracts in excess of 110 players, creating some juicy prize pools in the process. For £300+£30 players receive 20,000 tournament chips and a fantastic structure that sees the blinds increase every 45 minutes. Players can also help themselves to a "dealer bonus" of an additional 2,500 chips for just £10 meaning players can start with 22,500 chips. it is also possible to re-enter the tournament once should you bust out, which should see the prize pool swell!
So you have an idea of the typical prizes we direct you to the tournament that ran in November that saw 120 players participate. The last two surviving players, Chris Gordon and Bruno Fernandes struck a deal heads-up that saw them walk away with £17,100 and £14,000 respectively. Not bad for two days of poker on a weekend!
