Welcome to the PokerStars.com European Poker Tour London Poker Festival Main Event! This stop marks the third on Season 8 of the tour and it's set to be a big one. Many players are in full-tournament swing after another successful World Championship of Online Poker and plenty of players have made the trek to the United Kingdom for this stellar event.
Last year, David Vamplew bested a record-breaking field of 848 players to receive the £900,000 first-place prize. He should surely be back in action this year to defend his title, but he'll have plenty of tough players to fend off. With his victory last year, Vamplew became the highest-earning Scottish player ever by a landslide.
The event is being held at the Hilton London Metropole Hotel and PokerNews is your stop for all of the event's live coverage. Day 1a kicks off at noon for this £5,000+250 buy-in Main Event, so be sure to check back then for all of the updates.
