LCI 2012 UK Poker TourThe second leg of the London Clubs International (LCI) 2012 UK Poker Tour hits the south coast of England today with the series kicking off in Brighton.

The latest UK tournament tour takes place in the city’s Rendezvous Casino, with the highlight of the six-day series being the £550 buy-n No-Limit Hold’em main event that features two opening-day streams on Saturday and Sunday and guarantees £30,000 in prizes.

However, the first event is today’s £30 buy-in rebuy satellite that will provide eight seats to that main event – with more added, depending on the number of entrants.

Among the other tournaments scheduled to take place are a £110 buy-in Deepstack Turbo, two-day £300 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event, a £135 buy-in Bounty competition and a £150 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em tournament.

Martyn Thompson pocketed £10,000 for winning the inaugural LCI tournament in Glasgow earlier this month.

Thereafter, leg 3 will pull into Nottingham’s Alea Casino from July 9 to 15, before stopping in Leeds (August 13 to 19), London’s The Casino at the Empire (September 12 to 16) and Manchester (October 3 to 7).
