Stephen Hendry and Jake Cody to play MEGASTACK London this weekend
One is a former snooker World Champion, the other is a World Series bracelet and EPT winner. Both will be representing PokerStars in London this weekend.
Stephen Hendry and Jake Cody will be at the Hippodrome to play the PokerStars MEGASTACK London event. These are great tournaments to play - not just because of appearances by the likes of Hendy and Cody, but because they offer professional poker structures and a deep stack, all for a buy in of just £170.
Already this year there have been enormous fields at MEGASTACK events around the world, including a record-breaking Namur event in Belgium, and fields of more than 2,000 across Europe.
London is another popular stop for the series, with The Hippodrome in London's Leicester Square providing the perfect backdrop. What's more there's the appeal of the tournament itself, with a Main Event guarantee of £40,000.
It all starts this Friday, 20 October and runs through to Sunday 22 October. You won't even have to take time off work. Except if you win. You might want to talk to your boss about that on Monday morning.
So that's Stephen Hendry, Jake Cody, a lot of chips, a great structure, £40,000 guaranteed, and in one of poker's best destinations. And all for £170. We'll see you there.
