Andy Black: London Calling

The Arcellor Mittal Orbital is London tallest piece of public art -20m taller than the Statue of Liberty, you can take a lift or climb up and for the brave it is also the UK’s tallest and fastest slide as long as you are at least 8 years old.

So everyone who is at the 2nd London Poker Festival just a 5 minute stroll away at Aspers Casino can give it a go.

Last year I met a few brave poker players who gave it a go and looked a little shaken after going round and round in circles far faster than they wanted to.

So it’s also shaken but not stirred for the brave souls of the Irish Poker Tour and Aspers Casino have put up a £1million guarantee for the festival in a couple of weeks time from the 30th of January to the 4th of February.

I just booked my flights to London city airport today which is only 4 miles away; amazing, book asap.

My gaze is firmly on the £700 main event £500,000 guarantee. You all are in my way, excuse me.

Bring your partner, your kids, and your friends.

This is probably the most vibrant part of London beside the Olympic stadium (which you can get a tour of) and it feels really diverse and buzzing.

Aspers has the best poker room in London and last year was a total blast.

I’m going to Westport the weekend before.

Did I hear a rumour about possibly Portugal later this year?

Let’s go to War.
