The Genting Poker Series may be the new kid on the UK live tournament block but they have certainly made a big splash in it despite their tender age. Wednesday marks the start of their fifth leg of their inaugural tour, the venue being the South Yorkshire city of Sheffield.
Kicking off proceedings is a £109 Rivers No Limit Hold’em side event that is sure to be great fun. The Rivers tournaments are popular on the European Poker Tour and see each player dealt their own river card, making for some crazy betting action! This opening event has to be capped at 100 players so if you want to participate you need to register sooner rather than later.
Thursday sees the £430 Genting Poker Series Sheffield Main Event get under way and what a tournament that should turn out to be, thanks in part to the £100,000 guaranteed prize pool. Each player will sit down with 25,000 chips and play to a 60-minute clock, which makes for some very deep stacked poker indeed. Day 1a of the Main Event starts at 13:00, with Day 1b starting at the same time on Friday. In fact, 13:00 is the start time for each subsequent Main Event day, including the final that is to be held on Sunday.
