Late last week, Joe Beevers updated his Facebook status with a simple message that informed his legion of friends and fans that the British poker legends, affectionately known for years as The Hendon Mob, were back on the scene. Albeit with a slightly different name.
Beevers and brothers Ross and Barny Boatman have launched Pokermob.com after signing an exclusive deal with Grosvenor Casinos that will see the popular trio compete in Grosvenor Poker events both online and on the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT). The launch of the Pokermob.com website coincides with the return of the popular forum and weekly online league.
The eight-week league is open to anyone who has a Grosvenor Poker account and gives you the chance to play against the Mobsters for the affordable sum of £10+£1. Not only will you get to play poker against three of the UK’s most recognisable players, you also stand the chance of winning a GUKPT package worth £750, plus a whole host of other prizes.
The league games run every Tuesday at 8:00pm from April 1 through to May 20 with a special playoff scheduled for May 27. Each week players are awarded point depending on their finishing position and these points are converted into chips for the playoff final. Each point is worth 50 chips so it really does pay to do well in the weekly league games.
