When the Dusk Till Dawn poker club took the unprecedented step of guaranteeing a £1,000,000 prize pool at the PokerStars.com UK & Ireland Poker Tour Nottingham Main Event many thought the management team had lost the plot.
But here we are, about to kick off the first of three starting days bringing you the news that all three days look to have sold out and new entrants are being place on an alternates list! This means over the next few days a crowd of at least 1,430 will be playing in this ground-breaking tournament and someone is going to be walking away with a hell of a lot of cash when the dust finally settled in the Nottingham-based club.
As mentioned, today is Day 1a, the first of three starting days, but it is not only the UKIPT Main Event that is taking place because there are also a number of side events taking place all week long as you can see in the table below:
