If you are in the vicinity of Nottingham this evening or over the weekend and you love poker you have no excuse not to head to the Dusk Till Dawn poker club. Tonight marks the start of the 150 Deepstack whilst Sunday is the day for the latest instalment of the Super 50 tournament.
Tonight at 19:00 is Day 1a of the 150 Deepstack, a great little tournament that has a total buy-in cost of £150 — as the name suggests! For their money players get a chance to win a share of the £50,000 guaranteed prize pool, receive a very healthy stack of 30,000 chips and play to blinds that increase every 30 minutes with latter days seeing the blinds increase to 40 minutes. Registration is open until 00:40 in the morning so after this time you will need to buy-in on Saturday afternoon; this includes using your one re-entry chance.
When this tournament ran in April the DTD management doubled the guarantee to £100,000 and this helped attract a crowd of 725 and create a prize pool of £108,750. The lion's share of this money was won by Andrew Couldridge who outlasted the entire field to pick up the £28,104.38 first place prize. We are sure he will be back for this latest edition in an attempt to defend his title.
Day 1b of the 150 Deepstack kicks off at 14:00 on Saturday 12 May and registration will close at 19:40 so if you plan on registering late or want to use your one re-entry chance then make sure you do so before twenty-to-eight otherwise you will be left, as the Radiohead song says, High And Dry.
Day 2 starts at a slightly earlier time of 13:30 on Sunday so please factor that into your plans if you are playing.
The reason for the slightly earlier start time for Day 2 is the fact the £50 buy-in Super 50, another great little tournament that attracts players in their droves. One recent winner of this tournament, Mark Cobain, walked away with £3,680.63 after besting a 240-strong field. This edition has a £7,500 guarantee on it so should give plenty of bang for its buck and someone has to win it; it may as well be you!
