Last week the National Poker League’s UK Poker Open took place in London, from August 12 till August 18.. Its official magazines were Bluff Magazine and Bluff Europe. There were five events; a 2-day $2500 main event followed it.
During the tournament Bluff and Bluff Europe distributed magazines to players and spectators, offered subscription and supplied free shirts. To say more, new subscribers got a 10 % discount.
Both pros and amateurs took part in it. The festival attracted such pros as Tony G, Mel Judah, Dave Colclough and Bluff Europe contributor Jennifer Tilly. But Peter Gould, an amateur, became the winner of the 1st prize – £32,500.
Satellite tournaments have been wisely established and promoted. It’s been achieved thanks to the NPL’s partnership with international casinos. NPL’s 2007 circuit will lead to televised World Cups. The UK open is followed by the Asia Open in October and the 2nd annual “Vegas Open” in November.
Both NPL and Bluff are thrilled to work together.
