EPT10 London: Neil Stoddart's photo gallery

PokerStars Blog is fortunate to have one of the best photographers in the business taking pictures across all of the European Poker Tour events. Yet we often don't get to showcase all of his work. But here is Neil Stoddart's EPT London gallery, which we'll update throughout the week to offer a pictorial guide to proceedings at the Grand Connaught Rooms. Enjoy.
