Gala Casinos Cancels Annual Poker Tour

On February 11th, 2009, the poker community is reacting to the astonishing news that the Gala Casinos has decided to cancel their yearly UK poker tour. The Gala Casinos British Poker tour is considered to be one of the most well-known and well-respected poker tours in Great Britain, attracting numerous professional and talented British poker players and being held in six regional locations around the United Kingdom.

The decision to cancel the annual UK poker tour was based on Gala Casino's decision to devote their attentions on their online gaming operations. The present economic situation was undoubtedly one of the main factors, although many insist that there is a still a big demand for a yearly poker tour of this scale. With available prize money of nearly $14 million, Gala Casinos will be holding a series of online jackpot games which are sure to attract the attention of online poker players all over the world.

A lot of people are thinking that the cancellation of such well-known poker event means that the online poker gaming industry is already edging out the land-based poker industry. But only time can tell if this assumption is true or not.
