The events are being upscaled to run at 150 players due to popular demand.

The events have been well received and have acted as a springboard for online and new players to play in a decent sized tournament.

Watch this space for details of live and online satellites to come.

first satellite went swimmingly with 11 seats given away to 11 lucky punters

40 runners gave them a better than 4:1 shot

Got to be worth a punt!

Six more seats given away in last night's satellite

Only 27 runners played for 5 guaranteed seats and after the break 17 returned for the 6 seats we generated.

Amongst the qualifiers was the crowd favourite John Hopkins who'll line up on the 26th for the chance of a share in the estimated £25,000+ prize pool.

With over 100 players already registered it's going to be a busy and for some very profitable day!

Only one more satellite remains on Monday 21st November, 8:30pm start with 5 more guaranteed seats up for grabs
