The PokerStars UKIPT London festival will run from January 20-25, 2015 and will attract the best players from across the UK, Ireland and beyond.
Season 5 kicks-off in the iconic Hippodrome casino located in the heart of London’s West End, and The Hippodrome is no ordinary casino. With five bars, a restaurant, a live music & cabaret theatre, shisha terrace, three floors of gaming and PokerStars LIVE, there is plenty to keep you entertained all night.
Season 4’s London Grand Final was won by the UK’s Brett Angell, who managed to outlast a field of 1,089 and take home the top prize of £115,083, and Season 5’s first stop will again be a celebration of poker. The PokerStars London Poker Festival features a £700+70 buy-in Main Event, and there will be a wealth of tournaments to choose from - including the £3,000 + £300 High Roller and the £300 + £30 London cup event.
