Cast your mind back to February 2014 and to the Dusk Till Dawn poker room in Nottingham in particular. Can you remember how exciting the inaugural Sky Poker UK Poker Championships were? How the best players from around the United Kingdom came together in one place and helped create one of the most memorable poker festivals in recent memory?
In a few short weeks, that electric atmosphere returns as Sky Poker and the Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) partner up once again to bring another first to British poker, the 2014 Sky Poker 6-Max UK Poker Championships.
Short-handed tournaments are extremely popular in the online poker world, but are something of a rarity in the live arena. The DTD has run a number of events where players are seated at six-handed tables and they have always been well-attended, yet none of those events can compare to what is in store between August 7 and August 17.
Kicking off the £1 million guaranteed series is a £150,000 guaranteed 6-Max Mini costing £250 to buy into. There is a £150,000 guaranteed prize pool on offer for the £3,000 buy-in 6-Max High Roller and a further £50,000 laid on for the £500 buy-in 6-Max Pot Limit Omaha players.
Although all the tournaments are sure to be full to bursting, there is one in particular that is sure to be one of the most eagerly anticipated events of all-time: the £1,000 buy-in 6-Max Main Event that carries a gigantic £500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Some of the UK’s top poker talent has helped Sky Poker and DTD in creating the perfect structure for a short-handed live event, meaning it should be one of the best tournaments played anywhere in Europe, especially when one considers the buy-in.
The full ring edition of the 2014 Sky Poker UK Poker Championships Main Event attracted a total of 621 entries and we fully expect the upcoming short-handed version to boast similar, if not superior, numbers by the time registration desk closes on Day 1c. Attendance should be boosted by the fact players can re-enter once on the day after they bust, with Day 1c being a freezeout.
