The Empire Casino Poker Team had a memorable week at World Series of Poker in Las Vegas

The Empire Casino, home to one of London’s most distinguished and well regarded poker rooms, watched on in high expectation as ‘Team Empire’ made its mark and delivered a gripping performance at the World Series of Poker 2019 (WSOP) Tournament in Las Vegas.

Fifteen Empire customers qualified to travel to Las Vegas to take part in the Main Event – the most iconic and prestigious tournament in the poker calendar. In a bid to claim a World Series of Poker championship title and cash some of the $80m prize fund, each player was guaranteed an adrenaline fuelled experience like no other – playing against 8,500 other people and rubbing shoulders with some of the best poker players in the world.

The Empire Poker Room’s Cardroom Manager, Rommel Lapinid, who accompanied Empire’s poker players to the tournament comments: “The WSOP is the pinnacle of the high-stake poker calendar. Offering only the most committed poker players the opportunity to take part in one of the world’s most prestigious poker tournaments.

“Being able to offer our customers a seat at the table of this prestigious event not only highlights Empire Casino’s enviable connection to the largest gaming network in the world, it also helps us to attract customers whom we host and reward to our very best capability. It’s a unique proposition in the casino industry and one we’re very proud of. Witnessing Fabio Miranda hit the TV table and rubbing shoulders with Daniel Negreanu was a real highlight for us as much as for him I’m sure!”

The Empire Casino, home of The Empire Poker Room, in the heart of Leicester Square, is one of a few UK casinos with a legitimate Las Vegas connection – offering exquisite, money-can’t-buy opportunities for its customers.

Lapinid adds “This was a sterling performance from Fabio which saw him cash for $15,970, after he was eliminated on day four.  He can look forward to a hero’s welcome on his return to Empire Casino. He’s done us all proud that’s for sure!”

Following his win Fabio said “I’m fulfilling a dream and I don’t have enough words to quantify how grateful I am for this moment.”

Renowned for its unrivalled customer service credentials and tailor made approach, the Empire Poker Room with its own dedicated bar, offers exceptional gaming in the heart of London’s west end.
