Whenever there is a major tournament like WSOP several side events are held to add a festive color to the event. PartyPoker will be hosting its third season of Poker Den in London alongside WSOPE. Poker Den will constitute a continuous 36 hours of high stakes cash games. Each player will start with $10,000 of his or her own funds.
The blinds will be $25/$50 throughout but the players can raise the stakes at the discretion of the tournament director. $1,000 will be added to chosen hands courtesy PartyPoker. The game is No Limit Texas Hold’em.
Phil Laak is expected to sit at the tables for all of the 36 hours. PartyPoker has said that Laak has been preparing himself for this challenging task. The Who’s Who of poker are slated to participate. The names include David “Devilfish” Ulliott, Neil Channing, Brian Townsend, Antonio Esfandiari, Mike Matusow and last but not the least Jennifer Tilly.
