Over the years many poker tours have started up only to fail within a year, sometimes two, of their creation. One tour that is almost certainly not going to suffer that fate is the Genting Poker Series, which holds is inaugural Grand Final leg this weekend .
The seventh and final leg of the Genting Poker Series Grand Final takes place at the Fox Poker Club from Dec. 1 and Dec. 9 and should see some high octane poker action take place. Dec.1 sees the massive £5,000+£200 No Limit Hold’em High Roller event that is sure to attract the very cream of the crop to the Fox Poker Club, whilst Dec.3 is the date for the latest instalment of the Genting Poker Big Game. Remember, 50% of the registration fees from each buy-in to the Big Game will go directly to the Great Ormond Street Hospital charity.
The Genting Poker Series Grand Final Main Event does not actually take place until Dec. 6, when a huge crowd should flock to the Fox Poker Club on Shaftsbury Avenue to exchange £1,500+£100 to participate in the £200,000 guaranteed tournament. Each champion from the previous six legs will be in attendance and so should the likes of Karl Mahrenholz, Paul Jackson, Amy Trodd, Charles Chattha, James Akenhead amongst others. It has all the hallmarks of a poker classic.
Once the High Roller and Main Event are in full swing you would be forgiven for thinking that was the end of the big events, but you would be wrong to think like that. On Dec. 8 the Fox Poker Club is going to run its £400+£35 Fox Main Event alongside Day 2 of the Genting Poker Series Grand Final Main Event.
