In an exciting development for Season 10, one of the biggest events on the schedule has moved back to its original Autumn/Fall slot. The PokerStars European Poker Tour London Poker Festival will run from October 2-12 and will attract the best players from around the world to do battle for millions of pounds.
Last season Dutch pro Rueben Visser took down the Main Event, playing through a field of 647 players to scoop a first place prize of £595,000. UK businessman Talal Shakerchi notched the High Roller event, taking home £436,330 in cash. In total, well over £5,000,000 was awarded in prize money, making EPT London one of the world’s very best live poker events.
Season 10's London stop will again be an extravaganza of poker, with a wealth of events including the £5,000 + £250 Main Event, the High Roller and European 8-Game Championship. EPT London is also the Grand Final of the PokerStars UK & Ireland Poker Tour. The festival also moves to a new home at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden.
