The new kid on the UK & Ireland live poker block is the Genting Poker Series but despite it being in its infancy it has already gained a huge number of followers and has a reputation for being one of the best valued tours currently doing the rounds.
On Wednesday the Stoke leg (Leg 4) of the inaugural Genting Poker Series gets under way with a number of satellites to the £400+£30 Main Event, which in itself starts on Thursday 2 August and runs through to Sunday 5 August.

The last time the Genting Poker Series opened its door was in June when 387 players entered the GPS Edinburgh Main Event, creating a prize pool of £154,800. The lion's share of this was awarded the eventual winners Paul McTaggart and Paul “Action” Jackson who chopped the tournament when heads up for £32,685 and £30,000 respectively. Will it be you who we are writing about after this week's antics?
Along with the events listed in the table above, there are also a whole host of satellites tournaments taking place throughout the week. If you are interested in playing in these satellite tournaments then contact Genting Club Stoke on +44(0)178 221 3499.
