EPT PRAGUE CONFIRMED FOR DECEMBER
Get these dates marked on the calendar: December 6-17, 2019.
The European Poker Tour is returning to Hilton Hotel Prague in the Czech Republic for a full slate of tournaments, cash games, and general festive fun.
INSIDE THE RUN IT UP LIVE HOME GAME
“Six friends sitting around a poker table, eating pizza, drinking beer. It could be absolutely anywhere in the poker-playing world, but somebody here says, “You’re going to break Twitch poker” and everybody else chuckles in agreement.
On the face of it, it’s just a home game in an anonymous house on a regular residential street, but the truth of it is something very different. The presence at the table of Jason Somerville should give the biggest hint that something special is afoot. This is actually the “Run It Up Live Home Game”, the latest concept from Somerville’s Run It Up studios. As ever with this outfit, it has the potential to turn the world of poker streaming on its head.”
LEX LIVE 2: LONDON TRAVEL GUIDE
At the end of September, PokerStars Ambassador Lex Veldhuis will be hosting the second edition of Lex Live at the Aspers Casino in Westfield Stratford City.
That’s in London, baby.
Whether it’s recalling all of the hotels that you wanted to buy on Mayfair and Park Lane in your earlier years playing Monopoly, watching scenes of the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace, cheering one of the city’s football teams or laughing to episodes of Fleabag, we’ve all had a piece of London in our lives at some point.
If you haven’t had the chance to visit this metropolis yet, then there’s no better time than for Lex Live 2.
The 10-day festival runs from September 27 through October 6, 2019.
