The Boylepoker.com International Poker Open (IPO) heads to London next week for the latest edition of its ever-popular main event.
Aspers Casino, Stratford is the venue for the £200+£25 buy-in IPO London main event, the same casino that has successfully hosted the World Poker Tour National London and PartyPoker.com Premier League VI in recent months.
The interest shown in IPO London has seen the organisers put on three starting flights, meaning there could be in excess of 700 runners by the time the registration desk finally closes. All three starting days commence at 19:00 and will run through until around 12:40. Players are permitted to re-enter if they bust out, but they cannot re-enter on the same day which they played.

To make the IPO London even better value Boylepoker is adding £5,000 to the prize pool, or the equivalent of an additional 25 players buying in.
The last time the IPO ran it did so in the Regency Airport Hotel in Dublin, Ireland. On that occasion it attracted 1,148 entrants and saw a €229,600 prize pool created. Tom Brady was its eventual champion, taking home an impressive €42,530 for his efforts.
Having personally spent 10 days inside the Aspers Casino, Stratford I can honestly say that whoever turns out for IPO London are in for a real treat. The staff are superb and the location of the casino is amazing. Situated on the top floor of a ginormous shopping mall, there are shops and stores galore and 80 places to go and eat – most of which I tried to work my way through over the course of my stint there!
Good luck to everyone who makes the trip to London.
