DTD Announce £500K Guaranteed in August

on 2012-06-11, 12:25
From UK Poker News

This weekend the Nottingham-based Dusk Till Dawn poker club hosted their poplar £150 Deepstack tournament but it was their announcement on Day 1a that has and will continue to grab the headlines in the UK poker world for the coming weeks.

Whilst scores of players were heading to the poker club for the £150 Deepstack, 257 of them over the course of the two starting flights, the Dusk Till Dawn management were busy announcing their plans for a £500,000 guaranteed tournament that will be held on five days between Thursday 20 August and Monday 3 September.

The MEGA SIZED £500 Deepstack will feature three starting days, each with a 333 player cap, and will use the World Series of Poker Main Event blind and ante structure but to a 40-minute clock and a 50,000 starting stack. Amazingly the club have slapped a £500,000 guarantee on this event despite the amount of money being more than the previous three tournaments' prize pools combined and they plan to run this every three months if the initial MEGA Sized £500 Deepstack is a success!

Meanwhile back to the weekend just gone and the £150 Deepstack result. In total 257 players paid the £150 entry fee, which left the club with a small overlay to pay in order for the £40,000 guarantee to be reached. At the end of two starting days and the official Day 2 it was Richard Blacklock who emerged victorious after defeating Jonathan Gill heads-up to scoop the £12,341.88 first place prize.

Correction - just had a look at the DTD website and it actually runs from Thursday 30th Aug, NOT the 20th as reported by UK Poker News.

"The next £500 Deepstack takes place between the Thursday 30th August and Monday 3rd September and will be ‘megasizing’ the prizepool to £500,000 GTE – £50,000 more than the combined GTE’s of three monthly £500 Deepstacks. The event will use the WSOP main event blind and ante structure, a 45 minute clock on day 1 and 2 and a 60 minute clock on day 3. The starting stack will also increase to 50,000 chips."

Day 1a Thursday August 30th 2pm
Day 1b Friday August 31st 2pm
Day 1c Saturday September 1st 2pm
Day 2 Sunday September 2nd 2pm
Day 3 Monday September 3rd 2pm

Fair enough then, thought they were trying to kill the action elsewhere.

Has there been any upswing in the numbers for their online satellites for this yet? Im assuming their usual satellites are running as normal and they will only start having "megas" in august when they launch their usual "massive overlay" marketing strategy?
