Genting Poker Series Edinburgh Kicks Off Today 0001

The latest instalment of the newly formed Genting Poker Series is in the Genting Club, Edinburgh for what should be a fantastic tournament in the Scottish capital. Edinburgh is the third of seven legs – if you include the Grand Final – and live poker in Scotland is always well received and attended.

Today is Day 1a of the 3400+£30 Main Event where players start with a huge stack of 25,000 chips and play to 60-minute clock that sees blinds start at just 25/50. Tomorrow at 13:00 is Day 1b with Day 2 and the final both taking place at the same time on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Along with the eagerly anticipated Main Event there are also a plethora of side events and cash games taking place between now and Sunday that you can get your teeth into if you so wish. See the table below for the full schedule.

The last Genting Poker Series played was at the Fox Poker Club in London where a staggering 580 players descended on the club resulting in them having to use neighbouring casinos to fit all the players in! The eventual winner was Albert Sapiano who defeated Callum Smith heads-up to take home a massive prize of £50,160; not bad at all from a £430 investment! Will it be you who we are writing about after the weekend?
