Poker in London
Our summer season has been built around what may be the three most important London tournaments – World Poker Tour, World Series of Poker Europe, and European Poker Tour.
We are at the Radisson Mayfair for the WPT. It struck us as odd that the first group of employees that we met here were not nearly as caring as those in Positano or Saint-Tropez. It may just be that we were at ultra classy hotels before, and this is just a so-so hotel. Also, virtually none of the employees seemed to be British.
Weirder yet, we immediately went across the street for a delicious Starbucks coffee, and all three of the employees there barely spoke English.
What’s going on?
