Ciaran Corbett, head of poker at Boylesports.com, said, “After taking some feedback from players and discussing our options with Aspers we’ve decided to add an extra starting day to IPO London 2013, host the final table on a separate day and add a re-entry element.
“This will accommodate more players, bulk up the prize pool and, most importantly, increase the comfort factor for players, many of whom will travel from far and wide to play in the event.”
