PartyPoker Gives Grand Prix UK Green Flag; Company Reverts to Capitalized ‘P’ Brand Name

PartyPoker Live’s Grand Prix UK returns in July with a heavy online poker schedule as part of the mix before players head off to play live at Dusk Till Dawn casino.

The event plays out online from July 10-17 with the action then shifting to a live setting from July 10-13 in Nottingham. Party continues to promote more live/online hybrid series and that continues with the Grand Prix UK.

“We’re looking forward to being back at Dusk Till Dawn,” PartyPoker’s head of live events Dan Rose said in a news release. “The atmosphere at the Grand Prix events is always fantastic and this, combined with a large prize pool and plenty of poker action, means the weekend is one not to be missed.”

Inside the PartyPoker UK series

Players jumping in the action will find a £120 Main Event with a £100,000 guarantee. The event begins with four online starting flights running from July 10-13.

Satellites for the championship are already underway and start at just £0.01. The centrolls lead a £3.30 satellite Level 1 ticket. These lead to a £16.50 satellite Level 2, where players can win their place in an Online Day 1.

The Grand Prix shifts to Dusk Till Dawn on July 14 with five more starting live flights across three days. Players are allowed one re-entry per starting flight.

Day 2 then begins on July 17 and plays down to a champion on the same day.

PartyPoker brings some extra value

Beyond the Main Event, online grinders will find some nice added value. Any player buying into an online starting flight and reaching the final table will receive a £330 satellite ticket for MILLIONS UK.

That series is set for November and winning a satellite ticket offers some extra incentive to get in the action. In the last Grand Prix UK Main Event in May, Andrew Balfe came out on top of a field of 1,156 players for £22,000.

Here’s a look at the complete series schedule.

partypoker is now PartyPoker

In other Party news, what’s old is now new again. PartyPoker recently confirmed to PokerScout that the company has adjusted its brand spelling to capitalize the “P” in the name.

The company began as “PartyPoker” when the site launched in 2001 and that spelling has returned. The brand advertised using that spelling on numerous poker shows including the World Poker Tour.

However, that eventually changed to the stylized lowercase format “partypoker,” which the company has used for several years. The new capitalization, however, now brings the brand into uniformity with other brands in the company like PartyCasino and PartyGaming.

Those who prefer brand name capitalization will be pleased with the change. However, the partypoker US Network, a partnership between partypoker parent company Entain and MGM Resorts, will retain the lowercase spelling.
