In terms of value this past weekend nothing came close to the PokerStars London Series at the Hippodrome.
The £250 Main Event not only had a first prize of more than £13,000, it had a Platinum Pass to go with it. Those are worth $30,000. Potentially more given that it grants the owner a seat in the PokerStars Players Championship next January, which will have a prize pool of millions.
PokerStars London Series Main Event winner Gareth Gardner. Not only did he collect a first prize of more than £13,000, he won a Platinum Pass to the PokerStars Players Championship in the Bahamas next January, worth $30,000
The Platinum Pass went to Gareth Gardner late on Sunday night. Rod Stirzaker was on hand to report from the Hippodrome in London’s West End. Click here to read his report.
