Nobody could ever accuse Rob Yong and his Dusk Till Dawn management team of not putting their necks on the live in an attempt to give the UK poker community tournaments with huge guarantees. Unfortunately, it appears their latest attempt to push the boundaries of low buy-in tournaments could have backfired because it looks set to have a massive overlay.
The Dusk Till Dawn Grand Prix has a £250,000 guaranteed prize pool despite costing only £50+£10 to enter but that guarantee looks set to be missed by a projected £60,000. Only four starting flights remain, two online tonight and two at the live club. Once these are finished, DTD could be facing a hefty bill.
All buy-ins have to take place on DTD’s online site regardless of you choose to play the online legs or the live legs. For your £50+£10, you will receive 15,000 chips and will play to 12 minute blinds online or 30-minute blinds if you head to Nottingham to sample the delights of the DTD casino.
Each of the remaining Day 1s stop once only 10% of the field remains and the surviving players progress to Day 2. All players who managed to navigate their way to Day 2 do so safe in the knowledge that they are guaranteed to be paid no less than £250 because everyone is in the money.
The online flights take place at 7 p.m and 9 p.m while the final two live flights commence at 2 p.m and 7 p.m tonight (Friday).
