PokerStars unveils Belgian Poker Series

ps_news_thn.jpgThere is something about the Belgian people that until recently didn't scream, "Poker!" They are friendly but reserved folks from a small country. It's only been in recent months that the nation has started making serious headway in the world poker community.

At this moment, the country sits atop the European Poker Tour leaderboard in the race for best performing country, The country's best ambassador, Friend of PokerStars Pierre Neuville, is also known as the Serial PokerStars Qualifier, a man who won the EPT Awards Best Online Qualifier category last year. With all that in mind, it's no surprise the country is about to get its own poker tour.

PokerStars has recently unveiled the Belgian Poker Series. The BPS kicks off this month in Namur inside the country's biggest poker room.

The first event begins April 14 and runs through April 17. The main event is a €800 buy-in, four-day no-limit-hold'em tourney.

Although the buy-in to the first BPS main event is affordable, PokerStars is doing its best to make it as cheap as possible. You can find satellites for the Belgian Poker Series running right now.

After leaving Namur, the BPS will head to Casino Blankenberge in September for its next stop.
