Live poker continues to return and partypoker is getting in on the action to kick off 2022. Players can look forward to partypoker LIVE returning in the United Kingdom with Dusk Till Dawn Poker Club hosting the £150 Grand Prix UK this month.
The two-day tournament runs from Jan. 16-23 with a £100,000 guaranteed prize pool. The tournament also allows plenty of flexibility for players. The tournament offers live or online formats for players to battle it out in the Grand Prix.
“We’re really looking forward to getting back to live poker and returning to Dusk Till Dawn with the much-loved Grand Prix brand,” partypoker head of live events Dan Rose said in a news release. “The team can’t wait to be back on the ground and meet the players after such a long time away.”
Live and online choices come with the return of partypoker LIVE
Those looking for opportunities to play in the series have several options. There will be four online starting flights with the first two running on the opening day of the tournament. Two more are set for Jan. 18.
The live Day 1 flights commence on three consecutive days from Jan. 20-22, with Day 2 taking place the following day. Players can also enter the live starting days by buying in online via a holding tank.
Partypoker regularly offers a chance for players of all bankrolls to play. That continues with the Grand Prix UK.
Two of the four online Day 1s are designed for recreational players looking to fit some poker around their busy schedule. These are built around an interesting addition to the event: “The Sprint.”
Levels for these online Day 1s last for just three minutes, speeding up the process. These allow players to qualify for Day 2 and get into the money faster.
All players who reach the tournament’s second day will cash. All Day 1 flights are capped, so players wishing to enter are advised to buy in early.
Even more online aspects included
Additionally, buying in with partypoker via the online Day 1s or holding tanks offers players entry into the Golden Chip Last Longer.
The player winning the contest scores a £1,100 Main Event ticket for a festival set to take place in March. More details on this festival will be released soon.
“It’s great to see poker back at my local poker room Dusk Till Dawn,” Team partypoker’s Carl Froch said. “The new Sprint Day 1 format where you can qualify for Day 2 in a lot less time is ideal for people who, myself included, like playing on the app.
“And it’s a great idea for recreational players who don’t have loads of time on their hands. If you like the sound of this event, make sure you get in there early. It’s a great start for live poker back in Nottingham and I’m looking forward to the next big event we can put on there.”
Here’s a look at the complete schedule.
