London is hosting it’s leg of EPT Season 10 this week, and FTR has the stream available for your delectation. You can interact with the commentary team through Twitter using the hashtag #EPTLive.

The commentary team includes the long time regulars James Hartigan and Joe “Stapes” Stapleton.

Twice the Beast

In the past twelve months, Black Chip Poker has passed out over $2,000,000 in cash and tournament tickets through The Beast promotion. Now this monthly promotion is expanding in order to offer players an extra opportunity each month to get in the extra cash.

From the 1st of October The Beast is being unleashed twice a month, giving players twice the chances of topping the leader board or taming The Beast Tournament. More information is available for you here.

This progressive jackpot promotion can be a significant boost to any players bankroll, so it may be time to grab a whip and chair and tame the beast.
