The game of poker has drastically increased in popularity for UK audiences in recent years and the industry has been clamoring to properly cater to the demographic both online and off. With the second World Series of Poker Europe Main Event scheduled for England this September, London has embraced card-playing fever with the Poker in the Park festival.
The events will take place over two days (Friday August 15th and Saturday the 16th) at Leicester Square in London’s bustling casino and theater district. Poker in the Park promises to provide a fantastic weekend venture for fans of the game and demonstrates some very welcome support for UK enthusiasts who are traditionally left out from the best events. The festival will feature a chance to meet the professionals (from 4-9pm Friday and 10.30am-6.30pm Saturday), grab some autographs, attend talks, play in hourly tournaments and meet fellow poker fans.
Poker in the Park is boasting some very impressive support from land-based and online casinos with tournaments such as the Sky Poker Cup, the London Pub Poker Trophy, the Bluff Europe Championship and the England Poker League Cup among others. Poker fans should head over to the Empire Casino in Leicester during these days to take part in the festivities and show national support to help continue poker styled events at home.
