Leading poker publication Bluff Europe has revealed that The Casino At The Empire in London will be hosting satellites to the £500 Jamie Gold Charity Poker Tournament as well as sit-and-go tournaments during the third annual Poker In The Park festival beginning tomorrow.
The Jamie Gold Charity Poker Tournament will take place on August 13 from half-past seven o'clock in the evening from the Shadow Lounge of The Casino At The Empire and be co-hosted by last year's World Series Of Poker champion Peter Eastgate.
The event will be a 50-player no-limit Texas hold'em freezeout tournament with starting stacks of 7,000 chips. Forty seats will be available priced at £500 each while the other ten will be reserved for poker pros and celebrities personally invited by Gold and Eastgate.
Bluff revealed that special sit-and-go satellites for seats into the competition will run all day tomorrow in order to allow players the opportunity to qualify through a subsequent ten-man £50 satellite.
Although the cash buy-ins are to be donated to the Jamie Gold Foundation, a seat to the London European Poker Tour's main event in October worth £5,200 will be awarded to the winner. In addition, Bluff Europe is donating one-on-one strategy training worth £3,000 via TheMavenVT.com to the runner-up while a Gevril watch, which is favoured by top celebrities including James Caan and Denzel Washington, worth £1,500 will go to the third placed finisher.
Players can also buy-in direct to the Jamie Gold Charity Poker Tournament and more information on how to do so can be found at pokerinthepark.com/JamieGold
