European Poker Tour London Schedule Announced

Festival Of Poker Sees Extra Day Added To Main Event, New Side Events, And Country Of The Year Freeroll


Canary Wharf, London.From Sept. 29 to Oct. 6 every poker whim will be catered to at the Hilton London Metropole with 31 events across eight days for the PokerStars European Poker Tour London Festival of Poker.

There will be the £2,150 European 8-Game Championships, the £5,000 Heads-Up event, the £20,500 High Roller tournament, plus there are also plenty of new tournament formats at lower buy-ins.

The tournament that will draw the most attention however will be the £5,000 + £250 buy-in main event. Due to the large fields this event attracts, there will be an extra day added. Last year David Vamplew burst onto the live international poker scene by beating 847 players and taking down the EPT London title plus £900,000.

Finally, the 38 Irish players who competed in last season’s main events will attend EPT London for the EPT Country of the Year €10,000 Freeroll. Ireland won the EPT Country of the Year award in season 7 after achieving the highest percentage of cashes for the season, therefore the tournament is being held in London as it is the closest EPT stop to Ireland.
