What’s on in July

By Mad Harper

It’s not all about the WSOP! If you don’t fancy Vegas, there are still several great poker events going on elsewhere in July – including Redtooth Poker at the Ricoh, MPN Manchester, three PokerStars Festivals, Unibet Deepstack Open in Malta and Super Stack Spain.

 

Wherever you’re headed next month, MainEventTravel can help you with all your accommodation needs –  including  several special offers for players attending  The Goliath at The Ricoh Arena.
