THE GLOBAL POKER INDEX & THE HENDON MOB ANNOUNCE ‘THE HENDON MOB CHAMPIONSHIP’ EVENT
INAUGURAL TOURNAMENT TO BE PLAYED AT MALTA POKER FESTIVAL
MALTA – June 19, 2018 – The GPI/THM have today announced plans for “The Hendon Mob Championship” – a three-day event featuring a €220+30 buy-in. The inaugural event will be played as part of the Malta Poker Festival in November 2018.
“After almost two decades serving the poker community via our database and ranking network, the first Malta Poker Festival presented us with the perfect opportunity to launch our live product,” said Global Poker Index and THM Poker Database President, Eric Danis.
“The Hendon Mob Championship will be a grassroots initiative, catering to the very poker fans who have formed the cornerstone of our community since the outset. With a great structure, a low buy-in, and a place amidst a plethora of great events at the Malta Poker Festival, the Championship will help us better serve the poker community,” added Roland Boothby, GPI/THM Poker Content Manager.
For over 16 years, The Hendon Mob has established itself as the premier online hub for live tournament poker information. With stats and rankings for over half a million players, as well as 2.5 million results at 22,000 festivals played at almost 2,000 worldwide venues, it’s no wonder that more poker fans visit The Hendon Mob every day than the number that plays the WSOP Main Event.
The Malta Poker Festival takes place from 1-6 November 2018 at the Portomaso Casino. The full festival schedule can be found here.
