Attendances in the English Poker Open have dropped year-on-year, but those figures only tell half of the story. In 2009, the tournament took place in the vast Dusk Till Dawn poker club in Nottingham, before shifting to the Palm Beach Casino in London. The English Poker Open took a year out in 20111, before heading to the now-defunct Fox Poker Club in 2012. Now that Aspers Westfield and are on board, PokerNews would expect the English Poker Open to return towards the dizzy heights of 2009.
