went there to play a £100 turbo deepstack as part of ukipt london (yes, turbo deepstacks are as fun as they sound)
classy place, pricy, but middle of london so what do you expect
easy to get to on tube
didnt have a problem with the venue at all

there was one major issue that day, me and my friend travelled down from the midlands and got there well in time, only to be told that registration was capped at about 100 people and that about 50+ disgruntled players wouldnt get in
was annoying because there was an option to buyin via the pokerstars client but nothing was ever mentioned of a possible cap
the problem was that there was a shortage of dealers and after about an hour they finally sorted it and let us play, but i think several people didnt stick around as long as we did and would have been very annoyed at whoever was in charge that day

sorry, had to get that off my chest :P

it's a nice venue.
