PokerStars festival prepares for London debut

Poker is set to flood the streets of London as the PokerStars Festival London comes to the city this month from 22-29 January, with eight days of blockbuster action primed, sponsored by PokerStars, an Amaya Inc. brand. What's more, hoping to switch from the snooker table to poker table, seven-time World Champion Stephen Hendry is looking to transfer his skills across felts and will be among hundreds of hopefuls keen to make their mark at the Festival's various poker tournaments.

"I'm really looking forward to being a part of the PokerStars Festival London," said snooker legend Hendry. "The anticipation is much like that of a snooker tournament really -- the adrenaline, the eagerness to size up your opponent, and the desire to be on your best game. The strategic thought, patience and focus needed isn't dissimilar to what I'm used to. Although, at least with poker you can practice online. I can't wait to get out there and give it my best in the Main Event; it's going to be a lot of fun."

The PokerStars Festival London will take up residence in The Hippodrome Casino London located in the heart of the West End. The event marks the first 2017 stop for the transatlantic PokerStars Festival having previously set up shop in New Jersey last year. The tour will continue across Europe as it heads to Rozvadov in the Czech Republic this March, with more stops yet to be announced.
