Bluff, WPT host London poker event

21 June 2007

LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Bluff Europe magazine, Europe's premier poker publication, is celebrating summer and its crowning of London as "Europe's #1 Poker City" by holding an afternoon of poker with the World Poker Tour® (WPT) in the heart of London.

"Poker in the Park" will be held in Leicester Square Park on Friday, July 6th, from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. Bluff Europe and WPT will be holding 'Learn to Play' and 'Play for-Fun' tournaments for poker enthusiasts and players of all skills and backgrounds.

The event, presented by Bluff Europe and sponsored by the World Poker Tour, is open to all visitors over 18 years of age. Visitors who choose to play might find themselves across the table from actress Mimi Rogers, who is also a WPT Board member and poker enthusiast. WPT president, founder and CEO, Steve Lipscomb, will also attend the event. In addition, World Poker Tour poker gift packages will be given to the first 1,000 visitors.

"We are pleased to be a part of this celebration as London is named the #1 poker capitol in Europe," said Lipscomb. "World Poker Tour was at the forefront of the global television poker phenomenon, which helped bring the poker boom to London. We are honoured to have played a part in this great city's rich history."

To mark the magazine's naming of London as Europe's No.1 poker destination, a plaque will be awarded to the Mayor of London, congratulating the city for its services to the poker community.

"'Poker in the Park' is an opportunity for people who have an interest in the game to come out and play for free in a fun, friendly environment, and to find out what all the excitement is about," said Michael Caselli, editor-in-chief of Bluff Europe. "People are really beginning to see that poker is a game of skill and intellect and that tournament poker is about mental fortitude - it really is about the sport of poker. The event is also a celebration of the London poker boom which punctuates London as one of the most exciting places to be right now."
