New MPN Poker Tour will kick-off in London
Wednesday February 19,2014 : NEW LIVE POKER TOUR FROM MPN
Relaxed, friendly environment focusing on building community
A new MPN Poker Tour will kick-off in London at the end of May.
During its inaugural year, the MPNPT will visit several locations across Europe, including London, Malta and Tallinn, focusing on building a community among MPN players and operators.
Every festival will consist of a deep-stacked, slow-structured Euro 550 Main Event, plus several cheaper Side Events.
The MPN said it will bring some of its exclusive online innovations to the live poker environment; players can earn special Achievements for taking part in live events, play live versions of their favourite online tournaments and may get the chance to fire a real-life Blazing Cannon!
"We have built some fantastic poker features over the past couple of years and we plan to bring them to the MPN Poker Tour," said Lydia Barbara, Head of Poker at Microgaming.
The tour's first stop is in London, from the 29th May to the 2nd June 2014 at Aspers Casino in Stratford.
It features a range of poker events including the Euro 550 Main Event, ‘The Mosh Pit Live' (a fun, fast GBP 50 re-buy event) and an Open Face Chinese Poker Side Event.
Players can qualify for the MPNPT on 24hPoker.com, Betsafe.com, Betsson.com, BetVictor.com, NordicBet.com, Paf.com, Pokerihuone.com, PokerHeaven.com, StanJames.com and Triobet.com.
"The MPNPT looks set to be a fun-filled and action-packed poker tour," said Richard Cunningham, Poker Product Manager at Stan James. "It has something different to make it stand out from the other tours out there, like the chance to play Blazing Cannon, not to mention the famous MPN community spirit!"
