owever, the PKR-backed venture, which can seat up to 200 players at a time, is now ready. The club, situated on Shaftesbury Avenue in London’s West End, will hold the usual mixture of cash games as well as a series of regular tournaments.
The promising schedule includes a Sunday 4pm us$ 158 deep-stack freezeout, with 30 minute blinds. For those who prefer their action a bit faster, the regular Tuesday night us$ 110 freezeout - with levels every 20/25 minutes - looks the best bet.

In addition to the tourneys there's also a 'PKR only table', a poker library, smoker’s deck and a bar/lounge. Free afternoon tutorials will also be held for any new members who want to improve their Hold'em.
