Ladbrokes Launch Summer Festival
British poker site Ladbrokes.com have announced that they will be launching a summer festival of poker, which will see eight events in various disciplines being contested over the August bank holiday weekend.
The Summer Festival will take place exclusively online at Ladbrokes.com and will be headed up by a two-day NLHE main event on 28 August, which carries a €550 buy-in and guarantees a colossal prize pool of €500,000.
In addition to the Summer Festival’s showpiece event, there will also be a full schedule of no limit Hold’em events including a rebuy, turbo, survivor and six-max tournament, all of which cost just €55 to enter.
For those seeking a bit more variety, there will also be a pot-limit Razz tournament with €5,000 GTD and PLO Hi-Lo second chance/PLO second chance events, both of which will carry €10,000 GTD prize pools too.
“We’re really looking forward to the Summer Festival,” said Naomi Thrower from Ladbrokes Poker. “A huge guaranteed prizepool is bound to attract a lot of players, so we’re anticipating a hotly contested Main Event.”
