Details have been released for the London Poker Festival, a month long series of poker tournaments that will take place in a number of casinos in London.
The festival begins on September 1st and will carry on until 29th September, with a total of 80 events being announced. These tournaments will be played in a selection of some of the best casinos in London, including Fox Club (Shaftsbury Ave), Aspers (Olympic Park) and Victoria Casino (Edgware Road). A combined guaranteed prize pool of £1,000,000 will be spread across all of the tournaments, with a wide range of buy-ins and game types available. A number of high profile tournaments are set to run during the festival, such as the GUKPT main event and the English Poker Open. These huge tournaments are sure to attract a few poker pros from all over the world and are not to be missed.
If tournaments aren’t your thing, there will be special cash games running alongside the tournament tables, as well as casino, backgammon and bingo tournaments. There will also be several parties going on throughout the event, so whether you’re celebrating a big win or drowning your sorrows after a sick beat, you and your friends will be sure of a good time.

If you want a shot at playing in the English Poker Open, which starts on 18th September, you can play in a qualifying tournament every Sunday at 7pm EST on Cake Poker. The buy-in is only $33 and the winner of each qualifier will receive a $3,500 buy-in to the main event and $1,500 cash. There are also satellites for the qualifiers running every Sunday, with buy-ins from as little as $0.40! With the 2011 English Poker Open winner Fabian Quoss taking home a score of £220,650, this is definitely an opportunity not to be missed.
Poker may not be recognised as an Olympic sport, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have our own celebration of our favourite game. The London Poker Festival is a great opportunity to play in some of the best poker rooms London, so why not get involved?
