The Genting Club Reading is the venue for the Southern England Poker Challenge that kicks off on Nov. 14. The mini festival may only feature three events, but there will still be an estimated £75,000 up for grabs.
The Southern England Poker Challenge’s first tournament is not an event as such but a satellite to the Main Event. Starting at 18:15 on Nov. 15 the £50+£5 satellite will award one seas to the Main Event for every £550 in the prize pool.
The Main Event begins at 14:00 sharp on Nov.16 with Day 1a, with Day 1b starting at the same time on Nov. 17. The final table will take place at the lightly later time of 15:00 on Nov. 18. Players in the Main Event start the tournament with 20,000 chips and if other Genting-run events are anything to go by the blind structure should be superb and allow for plenty of play.
Also taking place on Nov. 16 is a £150+£15 No Limit Hold’em event that is more affordable to those priced out of the £500+£50 Main Event. This particular tournament shuffles up and deals at 21:00.
The third and final event is another £150+£15 No Limit Hold’em tournament but this one has the added excitement of being a bounty event. Each player starts with a bounty on their heads, knock out that player and you get to keep their bounty, meaning you do not even have to make it into the money places in order to profit!
Please be aware that due to ongoing refurbishments at the Genting Club Reading table space may be limited and the usual array of cash games and side events may be reduced.
