It's been a great timing when The Hendon Mob, the famous player and tournament datbase, decided to launch their own live Poker events just before the pandemic :-) Things have then been kinda on hold for a few years but the THMC tour is picking up speed again. I documented some of their Bratislava stop during winter 2022 and we did a Nottingham stop together in spring 2023 during The Festival Series. Malta has also been on the menu for a while and the latest addition to the circuit, is a stop at Grand Casino Liechtenstein where I got invited as a photographer and media partner. Sweet!

Liechtenstein is one of the smallest sovereign countries in the world. The tiny speck of land is landlocked in central Europe in the middle of stunning Alpine scenery, welcoming small charming villages, and very decent tourist and cultural attractions.
Natureâs beauty is probably what stands out most when you visit the first time. The views on the majestic peaks, the clear lakes, and the gorgeous green or white valleys depending on the season are a visual treat.
Size does not matter when it comes to cultural and historical heritage. Castles, museums, art galleriesâ¦ there are many options to learn about the placeâs rich past but the great outdoors remain what people usually visit this place for. Depending on the season, there are plenty of offers for skiing, snowboarding, climbing, fishing, hiking, or boating.
The local food is the result of typical mountain cuisine influenced by Swiss and Austrian dishes. Specialties include KÃ¤sknÃ¶pfle (a type of pasta with cheese) and Ãlplermagronen (a hearty macaroni dish), as well as tasty wines and beers produced in the country's many vineyards and breweries.
Last but not least, Liechtenstein is a welcoming, neat and safe place featuring one of the big poker rooms of the European continent. You can visit the Grand Casino Liechtenstein's website HERE for details.
HENDON, May 2, 2023, â A new destination for The Hendon Mob Championship (THMC) is on the horizon. For the first time, THMC will enter Liechtenstein and host a full festival at Grand Casino Liechtenstein. The festival runs from May 30 to June 5 at one of Europe's most exciting up and coming venues. The schedule consists of six side events, satellites, and is highlighted by a CHF 300 buy-in Main Event boasting a CHF 200,000 guarantee.
The festival truly kicks off on Wednesday, May 31st at 6:00 pm with the first of six starting flights for the THMC Liechtenstein Main Event. The cost to enter is CHF 270 + 30. Players start with 40,000 in chips and will have the option of two re-entries per flight. Players fortunate enough to bag their chips on any Day 1 will return for Day 2 on Sunday, June 4th. The third and final day will be Monday, June 5th.
In addition to the Main Event trophy, six other players will win custom THMC trophies, and a specialty flag added to their THM profile. Two side events carry a CHF 6,000 guarantee including a THMC Friday and a THMC Pot Limit Omaha event. Another two events have CHF 10,000 guaranteed; THMC Bigstack Turbo and THMC Grand Stack Win the Button. There is also a THMC High Roller PKO that offers the second-largest guarantee of the festival at CHF 30,000. The festival will wrap up with a CHF 4,000 guaranteed THMC closer event.
Roland Boothby, Head of Partnerships for GPI/THMC said âWeâre thrilled to have teamed up with Grand Casino Liechtenstein. They are a property in the ascendancy with big ambitions. With each month that passes, they are running bigger and better poker events. We look forward to taking The Hendon Mob Championship concept to Liechtenstein. The location will catch the eye of many flag hunters and provide us with a great Casino partner with which to continue our plan to grow THMC as a must-have festival on the calendars of Casinos around the world.â
