Poker tournaments and their results dominate the headlines of poker news sites around the world. The poker community love stories like that of Leigh Wiltshire turning a £0.01 satellite win into £110,000 or of Tom “hitthehole” Middleton playing his way to a €942,000 score over the course of a week.
Those who grind cash games often “get it quietly,” flying under the radar, often unknown to the poker world unless they are playing for pots that would by a house if an Average Joe won one. That could be set to change because this weekend at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham, the cash game players will be thrust into the limelight as the club attempts to run cash games 24 hours per day from Friday 29 August through to Monday 1 September.
The brainchild of 2007 World Series of Poker fifth place finisher Jon “Skalie” Kalmar, the 24 Hour Cash Game Weekend gives cash game specialists the chance for some serious play. DTD has previously hosted the partypoker 24 hour Big Game and more recently ran a non-stop cash game during the inaugural Sky Poker UK Poker Championships, but this weekend is going to be something else.
DTD staff will open the club’s doors at 7:00 p.m on Friday evening (August 29) and will keep them propped open until 5:00 a.m on Monday morning! During this time, cash games will be running constantly. Games start as low as £1/£1 and increase to £25/£50 and possibly higher if you dare venture into Trickett’s Room, with No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha and Dealer’s Choice being spread.
If you want to get involved in the cash game spectacular – and enjoy the 24 hour complimentary buffet – but don’t think you can afford a long session, you need to check out DTD’s online poker arm because every night there is a special satellite taking place that awards £500 worth of cash game tokens that you can exchange for cold, hard cash at DTD’s live venue during the cash game festival.
There are no limits on how many tokens you can win, and with satellites starting as low as £0.01, there is no excuse for not trying to qualify for this ground-breaking event.
