Live Poker Director, Simon Trumper, commented:
“We are announcing the date well in advance so players that prefer to play on Friday have time to make the necessary work arrangements. The Grand Prix is about giving players, especially those with a limited poker bankroll, the opportunity to win a big prize for a modest outlay. We surveyed the players at our previous Grand Prix event, and 82% of them ticked ‘prize pool’ as their main reason for playing. Therefore, we decided to increase the buy-in but still kept it within affordable limits. Our Customer Support logs show that we could have achieved a field of over 1400 players, so hopefully with this much notice, nobody will be left disappointed this time round. All tables will be dealt 9 handed from the start, as we felt dealing 10 handed for the first few levels detracted from the player experience. We were of course tempted to try and beat our 900 record, but we think it’s wise to see how this one goes first!”
