***Official month of ridiculousness in London thread***

WHOAH

There are four different tours/events in London this autumn.

WPT London Poker Classic is a 5,300 event, starting on August the 27th, lasting until September the 5th, with the main starting on the 30th - two starting days. There's a 15k high-roller on the 3rd.

The English Poker Open is 3,750, and is from the 12th until the 14th of september. It has a $1M guarantee - yeah, I don't understand either. Right now 1 = $1.55 so it's essentially a $6k.

WSOPE kicks off on the 14th of september with a 2,650 6-max NLHE event. On thursday the 16th there's a 5,250 PLO - BRING IT. On the 17th there's a 1,100 straight-up NLHE event, and the 10,350 main event is on the 23rd.

Lastly, we have EPT London. Too many events for me to list, but the main event is 5,250 and starts on September 29th - two starting days; other highlights include a 20k high-roller, a 10k turbo 6-max, and a 2,150 'european 8-game championship'.

Pretty sick schedule, if we treat it as one big event, it's second only to the world series in number of tournaments and expenditure.

In terms of locations, Palm Beach in Mayfair is hosting both the EPO and the WPT, the Empire casino, hosting WSOPE, is in Leicester Square (central) and the Hilton Metropole, in Edgware Road, is hosting the EPT. They're all pretty central and you can walk between them in about half an hour, and they're pretty safe areas. If you're not on a budget, you should probably stay somewhere with a view onto hyde park, or mayfair; if money's tight, consider not coming at all or staying on someones sofa! Mine's already taken, sorry.

If anyone needs out there, I'll be around for pretty much the entire time.

Re: ***Official month of ridiculousness in London thread***

The empire is pretty great for pulling in randoms, it being on Leicester Sq, and they do a reasonable job of publicity. It won't be anywhere near as juicy as the $1.5ks during WSOP, but I'd expect it to be one of the softest 1ks in the UK.

probs playing EPO/WSOPE 2.5k/1k and EPT, there's also GUKPT Brighton on around the same time as the 1k I think and you can make it so you can play both or something I think (GUKPT in shock scheduling conflict)

You're entitled to your opinion about Brighton, but it's definitely only an hour away from central london

Doubt the wsope 1k would be close to being the softest 1k in UK

betfair has merged into ongame now so that would explain the lack of sats and things

I'm in for a whole month of drinking and tour-guiding

More ridiculousness just announced :

http://www.pokernews.com/news/2010/0...irmed-8613.htm

It's a $10k made for TV shootout September 6-10.

I wouldn't count on this being great value ; last time I played against Timoshenko, FullFlush and Akenhead FML.
