The eagerly anticipated second leg of the new Genting Poker Series kicks off on Wednesday afternoon at the Fox Poker Club in the heart of London. The highlight of the five day festival is the £400+£30 Main Event but there are some other superb side events taking place too so there will be something for everyone!
The Main Event starts at 13:00 on Wednesday 28 March and should see the Fox Poker Club bursting at the seems with players. The first leg attracted 365 players through the doors of the Star City Casino in Birmingham and the organisers are expecting to at least match that figure by the time registration closes during Friday's Day 1c.
All Genting Poker Series main events are played to a re-entry format so anyone who loses their 25,000 stack can simply head to the cashier's cage and buy a new stack of 25,000 chips for £430! Hopefully you won't be having to do that if you are planning on heading down to the Fox Poker Club this week!
Sandwiched in between the Main Event are a number of side events ranging from £100+£10 and increasing to the £500+£50 High Roller. Please be aware that due to the limited space available at the Fox Poker Club during the Main Event the side events will be taking place at the Mint Casino and the Palm Beach. See the table below for full details.

As mentioned the opening leg of this new tour saw 365 players register including a trio of Hendon Mob members, one of which made the final table; Barny Boatman. They were all eventually outlasted by Ruslan Vlasov who walked away with a bankroll-boosting £16,600 and a seat to the season-ended Grand Final worth an additional £1,600. Will it be you we are writing about over the next few days?
