Aspers Stratford Gears Up For the 2014 Unibet Open London Festival

Aspers Stratford Gears Up For the 2014 Unibet Open London Festival 0001

London is the place to be this week if you are a live poker tournament specialist because you not only have the 2014 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) Grand Final festivities to get involved in, there is also the Unibet Open in town.

The shining jewel on the schedule is the €1,000+€100 buy-in 2014 Unibet Open London Main Event, which carries a hefty €250,000 guaranteed prize pool. While previous Unibet Open Main Events have never struggled to hit their ambitious guarantees, this one could be different thanks to the aforementioned GUKPT taking place at the same time and with a chunkier £400,000 guarantee slapped on it.

Unibet are famed for their fantastic players' parties and the fact they like to inject fun into their festvals. The London leg is no different with plenty of unique games to get involved in. There's an Open Face Chinese Poker tournament, a Flips Championship, a Live Betting Championship and some special promotions from Unibet's sportsbook.

The last time the Unibet Open took place in the UK it was a roaring success. A total of 315 players bought in and they were all outlasted by Pratik Ghatge who walked away with the coveted Unibet Open trophy and £85,050.

Other notables that helped themselves to some of the £378,000 prize pool included Paul Valkenburg, Marc Inizan, Charles Chattha, Dan Murariu, Patryk Slusarek, Govert Metaal, and Chris Bjorin, going to show the draw the Unibet Open has on players.
