The Unibet Open is one of the most popular tours on the European live poker circuit and it has dropped anchor in London for its penultimate stop on this year's schedule.
Unibet Open London will feature nine tournaments in four days, the highlight being the €1,650 No Limit Hold'em Main Event. The Main Event features two starting days, Day 1a taking place on Thursday 13 September, Day 1b on Friday 14 September and will see players start with 20,000 chips and play to Unibet's tried and tested hour-long blind structure.
The last time there was a Unibet Open London Main Event was 2010 when Paul Valkenburg outlasted a bumper crowd at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino to get his hands on the massive £109,550 first place prize. The 2012 Unibet Open London Main Event has a different home, Aspers Westfield Stratford City but the same huge prize pool should be very much the same.
Along with the Main Event there is a heads-up tournament, a Ladies event, Omaha tournaments and more. Check out the full schedule below.
