Well, the World Poker Tour plans to stage a London event this summer have come to fruition.
We can confirm that the WPT London Poker Classic will happen between Aug. 29 and Sept. 5″at the Palm Beach Casino and Mayfair Hotel.
The $5,300 event will have a field of up to 400 runners.
“london is a great poker destination and has always been a major target in our ongoing expansion,? said WPT President Adam Pliska, in a press release.
“we’re thrilled to have found amazing partners in The Palm Beach Casino, Genting UK and The May Fair Hotel London. This is sure to be a highly anticipated WPT event on the international schedule.?
What big news this is for UK poker, when you consider that the WSOPE and EPT London immediately follow it, we have a genuine triple crown in the capital in just over one month.
Take that, Vegas.
Well, hell…it’s over 100 degrees at that time of year in Vegas. So why not come to London?
Sounds like a great idea to me.
