What's on in the capital's cardrooms.

Aspers Casino Stratford

Deep Stacks Poker Tour: 22nd – 26th October
Here at Aspers, we are happy to announce that Los Angeles-based US and international tournament series DSPT is bringing its cutting-edge vibe and roster of poker champions such as Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi, Mike Matusow, and Tristan “Cre8ive” Wade to this five-day series in October.

DSPT London will be capped off by the £650 (approx. USD $1,090) Main Event, a DSPT GPI Player of the Year qualifying event, which will be broadcast across the world via the DeepStacks live stream. This new DSPT/Aspers Casino partnership offers players an opportunity to participate in an exciting event at an affordable buy-in, so don't miss out.

Summer Attendance, Overlay Alerts & 100 Seats Guaranteed for WPTN!

As always in the summer months, people have more commitments, kids off from school and summer vacations. Throw the WSOP and the World Cup into the mix and you will find that you have a good chance of finding some added value in parts of our tournament schedule.

Last month there were overlays in several of our 'Afternoon Annihilator’ tournaments, as well as our Tuesday Triple Shoot-Out. Even our ever popular Friday 55 missed the Guarantee for the first time ever! So keep your eye on our Facebook and Twitter to find out where the extra value might be. There is of course a business argument to reduce guarantees during this period, but I can assure you that won’t be happening. In fact, I have even decided to guarantee 100 seats in the build up to the WPTN Aspers Accumulator. Check out for full details on how to qualify for this £100,000 guaranteed event.

£25,000 Guaranteed Summer Poker Event

A field of 157 runners sat down to contest the £200 May Poker Event (held on the 23rd – 26th May) resulting in £31,400 prize pool. Congratulations to the winner, Justin Kyriakides (pictured below), who was delighted to have conquered the field after reaching a deal between the final three. The Empire Poker Room has now confirmed it’s set to host another £200+£15 summer event with £25,000 guaranteed prize pool over the August bank holiday weekend!

Cash Gamers Salute Reduced Rake

Cash games run 24/7 at the Empire Poker Room, and now players are getting great value with rake capped at £5 ‘all day’ on Sundays and Mondays. As well as this, there’s a £5 cap on rake every day between 8am-2pm. Undeniably this offers up some of the best cash game value in London, and it's no wonder players are saluting this.

Like to sit on a slightly deeper game whilst still playing £1/£2? We’ve now introduced our DEEPstack game £1/2 NLH. With an increased minimum buy in of £250 and no maximum, combined with a permanent cap of £5, it’s a formula for action!
