media sponsor of Poker in the Park 2011

poker in the park has been confirmed as the official media sponsor of Europe’s premier poker festival, Poker in the Park 2011. Taking place right in the heart of London’s party district from 2nd-3rd September, the event will be the world’s largest and action packed from start to finish.

Hanover Square, just around the corner from Oxford Circus, is the location with the festival that is once again completely free to all those attending. The fifth annual event of its kind will see 20,000 come through the gates and the exciting new set-up will have attendees excited at what all the fuss is about.

Those making the trip will also be able to meet’s newest poker reporter as the uber-fit Tatjana Pasalic takes to the camera for the first time as part of the tablog team. The event will be covered with the trademark vigour that the tablog has become known with all the parties and frolics included for what will be quite a two days for central London.

One of this year’s new features is the Bluff Europe Magazine Main Stage. It will play host to live music, magicians, and comedians. It is also home to this year’s British Poker Awards. In addition, it gives those that have been conditioning their livers at festivals all summer long the chance to show off their skills in drinking on a field of grass in front of a stage!

As with previous years, there will be free poker tournaments starting every hour with both poker domes running a number of sit-and-go’s across the weekend. One of the most popular features of the past returns as a number of the world’s best poker players take part in the Poker Pro Lecture Marquee.

This unique event only comes round once a year and missing out clearly isn’t an option. For more information on this free event visit the website at this link and then head to London for the first weekend of September.
