Head of Partnerships for GPITHM, Roland Boothby shared his thoughts; “We are thrilled to be teaming up with The Festival and King’s Resort to offer this groundbreaking edition of The Hendon Mob Championship. Not only is the event likely to be the biggest THMC event in Europe on record, but three players will be winning their way into the WSOP Europe Main Event, and another will be heading to Cape Town, South Africa to play The THMC Cape Town Million in November.
