If you are looking for first class poker action in the United Kingdom's capital then all you need to do is head down to the Fox Poker Club this weekend armed with £330 and buy into the FPC Main Event.
This superb monthly tournament is played over two days – Day 1 being Saturday 9 June - and sees players start with a generous stack of 20,000 chips – a £10 Optional Dealer Bonus adds a further 2,500 chips to this - and they play to a 45-minute clock. The Fox Poker Club now allow Re-Entry into this fabulous event for the first six levels and this has allowed them to boost the guaranteed prize pool to £25,000!
When this tournament ran in May it attracted 146 runners and they completely smashed the guarantee because the prize pool stood at £43,800. The lion's share of this was won by Jen-Yue Chiang who walked away with £10,160 after defeating George Achillea heads-up for the title. The prize money would have been even greater had the last three players not decided to strike a deal that locked up £7,500 for each of them.
If the £300+£30 asking price is a little too high for you and your bankroll then fear not because there are a whole host of live and online satellites to this superbly run tournament. You can qualify exclusively online at Genting Poker whilst the Fox Poker Club itself is running plenty of satellites to the FPC Main Event as you can see in the table below:
