LCI 2012 UK Poker Tour Glasgow

The Alea Casino, Glasgow at night

The London Clubs International 2012 UK Poker Tour has headed north of the border to bonny Scotland where until Monday 7 may it will be calling the fantastic Alea Casino, Glasgow home. This is the first of six stops planned in the inaugural season and the organisers will be hoping it is a roaring success, especially as it finds itself in direct competition with the other new kid on the block the Genting Poker Series — which has been very well attended so far.

There has already been one event completed, a £30+£3 No Limit Hold'em Deepstack tournament that took place on Saturday 28 April and tonight players can enter a £50+£5 buy-in No Limit Hold'em event that kicks off at 19:30.

But the tournament everyone has their eyes on is the £200+£20 Main Event that runs between Friday 4 May and Monday 7 May. There are those who are disappointed at the fact the guarantee has only been set at £20,000 but we would expect that guarantee not only to be met but to be completely smashed too low-to-mid stakes tournaments seem to be what the poker playing public want right now; plus this is taking place on May Day bank holiday too which could boost the attendance.

If the £220 asking price is too much for your bankroll then head down to the Alea Casino in Glasgow tomorrow (May 3) at 19:30 and enter the £20+£2 satellite that will be running and you will have one last bite at the cherry Friday 4 May at 21:00 when the last satellite tournament runs, which is also £22 to enter.

Are you playing in this inaugural event? If so we would love to hear from you and find out what your experience was like.
