As is usual with UKIPT events 3 percent of the prize pool will be withheld from all events to cover tournament staffing costs.

The festival also features a ladies event, high roller (both UKIPT and EPT), turbo win the button, turbo deepstack, pot-limit Omaha eighthanded, and an eight game championship.

The centerpiece of the festival is the £5,000 + £250 buy in European Poker Tour London main event which starts Sunday.
