This article has been edited at the request of ISPT tournament director Stephen McLean who believes we misinterpreted his comments with regard to the ISPT venue.
PokerNewsReport yesterday published an article based on a post on the Irish Poker Boards web site in which Stephen McLean had written “Its being played in the conference centre at Wembley Stadium”.
Our interpretation of this post led us to believe that The International Stadiums Poker Tour was no longer going to be hosted on the hallowed turf of Wembley Stadium and instead played “in the conference centre at Wembley Stadium”.
In our enthusiasm to bring readers of PokerNewsReport breaking news from a credible source, we failed to seek confirmation of this fact from the ISPT press office (who have always been a credible source of information), who have now issued a statement to say that the tournament will indeed be played “sur la pelouse.”, on the lawn of the Wembley Stadium.
Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts in the comment box below, or at the ISPT thread at 2+2.
