£50,000 Super High Roller Event Makes Debut at EPT 10 London Festival

38-event festival heads to Grand Connaught Rooms from October 2-12

ONCHAN, Isle of Man – The European Poker Tour today announced the 38-event schedule for the Season 10 London Poker Festival, which will feature a £50,000 Super High Roller event for the first time. The London stop, which will take place from October 2-12, is also set for a brand new venue at the beautiful Grand Connaught Rooms in central London.

Europe’s richest poker tour will once again join forces with the UK & Ireland Poker Tour for its London stop to create a spectacular ten-day poker festival. The local tour partnerships was an innovation introduced by the EPT in Season 9 to bring players an even greater selection of buy-ins and game types, creating a poker festival that truly offers something for everyone.

Last season’s London Poker Festival attracted almost 2,000 players and paid out more than £8 million in prizes. This year, the UKIPT £1,100 Main Event will kick off proceedings on October 2, while the six-day £5,250 EPT Main Event runs from October 6-12. Sergio Aido from Spain, and Dutch pro Ruben Visser, were last season’s UKIPT and EPT Main Event champions, who topped fields of 1,098 and 646 players respectively to take home £144,555 and £595,000.
