2014 WPT National Schedule

on 2014-01-22, 00:39
The UK's already crowded live tournament scene is now also host to the World Poker Tour, who have set up a series of events under the banner WPT National UK Tour.

The tours started at Aspers Casino in Stratford, East London, last October, and another leg was played at Milton Keynes in December 2013, but the tie-up with Aspers limits the opportunities for regional events. With Swansea closed, and Northampton for the moment offering no poker tournaments, that really only leaves Newcastle, and the schedule is dominated by events in the south east.

The so-called Aspers Accumulator feature a new format, allowing players - if they choose - to enter all three Day 1 flights and merge stacks for the final day.

“Instead of one massive buy-in, the tournament features three separate, smaller buy-in starting days,” read a statement from bwin. “You choose how many of these you want to take part in. Whatever chips you have at the end of each day will be stored and consequently summed up before the tournament proceeds to day 2.” The buy-in is set to be £200 for each day with satellites up and running at bwin.com.

There has also been criticism of the structure , with only eight 30 minute levels being played in each of the starting flights, four hours play makes it less attractive for travelling players.
