EPT London Kicks Off Today; Main Event Begins Sunday

EPT London Kicks Off Today; Main Event Begins Sunday 0001

While the UKIPT3 London Main Event has progressed to its Day 2 and the festival is in the final stages, its big brother, the European Poker Tour (EPT) London festival is just beginning.

Tonight at 21:00 at the newly opened PokerStars LIVE poker room in The Hippodrome casino, is the £1,000+£100 no limit Hold’em Turbo Win the Button; an event that is always good fun to participate in and even just watch from the sidelines. However, the tournament that everyone wants to win is the EPT London Main Event that starts on Sunday lunchtime.

The £5,000+£250 buy-in Main Event should see a massive crowd turn out for it, possibly eclipsing the 691 players who turned out for it last year. In Season 8, the EPT London Main Event was won by Germany’s Benny Spindler who picked up a cheque for £750,000 after defeating Steve O’Dwyer heads-up for the title of champion. PokerNews would expect Spindler to be back in London to defend his title, along with a whole host of big names and famous faces.

Other eagerly anticipated events are the £10,000+£300 High Roller Single Reload and the £10,300 EPT 8 Game Championship. Both events should see the cream of the crop buy in and compete for some astronomical prizes. PokerNews will have reporters on the floor bringing you full coverage of the Main Event and the High Roller.
