London is set to get its first ever LEGAL poker club next year.
The Fox Club will open in 2009 with a full casino licence. The plan is backed by top British poker ACES Joe Beevers, Barny Boatman and Phil Laak, who are all shareholders in the new company.
Recruitment for the new club gets into full swing at “Poker in the Park”, planned to take place in London’s Leicester Square on Aug. 15 and 16.
Visitors to the lifestyle poker show will be offered a month’s free membership.
Fox has also applied for licences to open poker clubs in Birmingham and Bournemouth.
