The Unibet Open once again brings the action to London for Season 12 as the historic ‘The Vic’ poker room plays the gracious host. 2019 will be the eighth edition of The Unibet Open London, and the fourth event in England’s capital in as many years.
Today at 11 am GMT, the highlight of the festival, the £900+£90 Main Event will get underway, with players taking their seats for Day 1A.
Last year it was Andreas Wiborg who lifted the trophy after the Norweigan came through a field of 349 entries to take home £56,807, following a heads-up deal with eventual runner-up Jonathan Schuman.
Among those set to take part are Unibet ambassadors Monica Vaka, Dan Murariu, David Lappin, Ian Simpson, Espen Uhlen Jorstad, and Alexandre Reard.
Frenchman Reard has already tasted success in London after he partnered Twitch streamer ‘RaptorDaRaptor‘ to victory in the Unibet Open London Tag Team Championship yesterday.
