London Live event to include a High Roller contest

April 3, 2011 by Dan Brown in Poker News

The second London Live poker event to be held this weekend at the Grosvenor Victoria “The Vic” Casino in the British capital will add a new contest to its itinerary, a £1,000 High Roller tournament that will take place on Sunday 3rd April.

The organisers, BlackBeltPoker, boast that they create the best value deep stack tournament in the United Kingdom and it seems that British poker players agrees as the 400-player capacity for the Main Event was filled way before the event’s official start on Friday 1st April. The $275-dollar buy-in created a $100,000 prize pool with a guaranteed first prize of $20,000 and a further 20% added to individual prizes and 20 bounties up for grabs.

Players interested in the £1,000 High Roller showdown will be able to buy-in directly at the Grosvenor Victoria casino; registration will be open until 15 minutes before the first hand is dealt at 2pm (GMT).

The Main Event has attracted poker professionals Neil Channing, Jake Cody, David Docherty, Richard Ashby, Surinder Sunar and Irish Open Champion James Mitchell.

Jake Cody, winner of the World Poker Tour (WPT) London event last year, and Neil Channing are also down to participate in the newly-added High Roller event.
