Excitement building for EPT London Poker Festival

17 September 2010

(PRESS RELEASE) -- With less than two weeks to go before the Season 7 EPT London Poker Festival, excitement is increasing over what is set to be the biggest poker event ever held in the UK.

PokerStars players still have a chance to win their trip to the UK capital, with full prize package satellites for the Main Event running on PokerStars until this Sunday, September 19. PokerStars qualifiers have already won more than €1,000,000 between them this season and, with 24 events being held over eight days at EPT London (September 28-October 5), qualifiers now have a chance to win hundreds of thousands more.

A total of 125 players have already won their seats to EPT London, including EPT Season 6 Players' Choice Award winner Kevin MacPhee, last year's WCOOP Main Event winner Yevgeniy Timoshenko and EPT Berlin champion and Team PokerStars German Pro Sandra Naujoks.

One of the highlights of this year's EPT London Poker Festival will be the much-anticipated PokerStars Party, which promises to be a truly glamorous affair. It's taking place at the beautiful Club Jalouse in the heart of London's exclusive Mayfair district on Saturday, October 2. A free bar will be available from 9pm to 11.30pm; all EPT London Main Event players and accredited media are invited.

Also taking place during EPT London is the UK & Ireland Poker Tour's Champion of Champions event, on Tuesday, October 5. This televised invitational tournament at the London Hilton Metropole will see the eight UKIPT Season 1 Main Event winners and the Season 7 EPT London champion battle it out for the 'Champion of Champions' title and a seat to every Season 2 UKIPT Main Event.

Other highlights at this season's Festival are the European 8-Game Championship, three Ladies' events and the £20,000 High Roller. A host of Team PokerStars Pros will be competing in London, including former world champions Chris Moneymaker, Joe Hachem and Greg Raymer. Also there will be Jason Mercier, Barry Greenstein, Dennis Phillips, Vanessa Rousso and Daniel Negreanu, as well as new Team PokerStars Pros Vanessa Selbst and David Williams.

Both PokerStars' World Series of Poker 'November Nine' finalists are taking part: American Jason Senti and Canadian chip leader Jonathan Duhamel. Sports fans can also look forward to seeing England soccer legend Teddy Sheringham, tennis star Boris Becker and popular field hockey Olympic gold medallist Fatima Moreira de Melo.

Players who wish to buy full packages, including hotel accommodation, direct from their PokerStars accounts can now do so. Due to popular demand, PokerStars has opened up the EPT London Seat+Hotel package online for ALL players.
