For the 11th straight season the European Poker Tour has found its way to London, arguably the poker capital of Europe and home to some of the finest players in the world. Today the Main Event kicks off and over the two starting days a big field of poker's elite's expected to show up to battle it out for the title and a mountain of British pounds!
Last year, in the 10th season of the EPT, the title went to Swedish pro Robin Ylitalo who beat a field of 604 players and walked away £560,980 ($909,574) richer. At the final table Ylitalo beat a tough field that included Jeff Rossiter and Norwegian legend Jan Sjavik.
The Main Event will run until Saturday when the final table will be streamed on a delay with hole cards up. Throughout this week PokerNews.com will be right here with you to bring you all the action from he felt at the Grand Connaught Rooms in central London.
