Eighty thousand pounds. That is the sum of money that the champion of World Poker Tour National London will win. Not bad at all considering this tournament only cost £1,500+£150 to buy into.
The top 27 finishers will receive money, the 28th place finisher receiving nothing but a round of applause and a bad beat story to tell anyone who cares – or pretends to – listen. A min-cash is worth £3,000 while a final table appearance is worth £10,000. As mentioned, the champion will win £80,000 and bragging rights on winning such a prestigious event.
