'Mega Poker Series' coming to Dusk Till Dawn

on 2011-11-17, 02:17
Introduction of Mega Poker Series

While we wait for GUKPT, Genting, and UKIPT to announce their dates for 2012, one site has beaten them all to it.

The Megastack may be dead in Stoke and elsewhere, but the Mega Poker Series is something you will be hearing about in the months ahead because it is a European tour, sponsored by French iPoker site Poker770, and it will be coming to the Midlands in March of 2012 when its second leg will take place at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham.

The Mega Poker Series will be offering deepstack tournaments with an enormous starting stack of 77,000 chips and blind levels that last 77 minutes. Wow, I wonder how they came up with that idea? So far, they are planning four events in 2012; the first two are set for Vienna and Nottingham. After that, on a date still to be decided, there will be a leg of the tour in Spa, Belgium, with the final venue still to be announced.

I'd guess many of you will want to play the Dusk Till Dawn leg, but why not have a crack at a trip to Vienna while you are waiting? It looks a great event, and the Montesino Casino in Vienna plays host to several other tours and has years of experience hosting live poker events.

With a buy-in of €770 - another great idea, huh? - and online qualifiers available starting at only €1 - the Mega Poker Series looks well worth the effort. Starting from November 20th, every week there will be two satellites taking place where at least one package each worth €1,500 is guaranteed.


How good is that? You just need to create a real money account and (after you get an email in French) you should only have to wait 48 hours for it to be credited to your account.

The estimated prize pool is €200,000 and the first event will take place from January 18th to 22nd in the heart of Europe at the Montesino Casino in Vienna. The Austrian capital is easy to reach from various directions and offers plenty of sightseeing potential and excellent food. Like I said, for now, the Mega Poker Series will host four events in 2012 and all participants will also score points for the overall leaderboard with a very competitive point structure.

Current Schedule for the Mega Poker Series 2012
Vienna, Montesino Casino, 18 January 2012 until 22 January 2012
Nottingham, Dusk Till Dawn Casino, 07 March 2012 until 11 March 2012
