The popular Fox Poker Club has officially closed its doors for the final time according to a statement on their Facebook page.
The statement reads, in full:
It with regret that Genting UK plc today announces that the Fox Poker Club will cease operation.
The Management and Staff of Fox Poker Club would like to thank all of it's customers for supporting the venture over the past two years.
Further information will be released shortly.
The move has come as a complete surprise to the poker community, especially as the club hosted the Genting Poker Series Grand Final this weekend; an event that was deemed a roaring success. Elliott Panyi bested a 176 strong crowd to win the £75,200 first place prize. The club confirmed that all poker tournaments have been cancelled and the club has closed with immediate effect.
