Countdown to the partypoker £1M Guaranteed WPT500 UK Is On! 0001

In a little under two weeks, Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham host yet another major poker tournament when the partypoker WPT500 UK rolls into town, bringing with it a massive £1 million guaranteed prize pool.

The inaugural WPT500 event took place at ARIA in Las Vegas during the summer and saw 3,599 players turn out for it, smashing the $1 million guarantee by some $799,500. After five-days of intense poker action, Sean Yu emerged victorious and claimed the $260,000 first place prize.

WPT500 UK could be even bigger than the Las Vegas variant thanks to a £1 million guarantee being slapped on it, which for those of you who are from across the pond reading this, amounts to more than $1.61 million!

Dusk Till Dawn (DTD), partypoker and the World Poker Tour (WPT) hope to reach this ambitious total my running seven Day 1s, each with a £500 buy-in. Players can re-enter once per starting flight, which means those with deep enough pockets can take 14 bites of the cherry if they need to.

Day 1a of the £1 million guaranteed WPT500 UK kicks off at 3:00pm on Sunday 9 November, with the final day’s play and the champion crowned on Sunday 16 November. In preparation for the WPT500 at Dusk Till Dawn, there is a £125 buy-in WPT Warm Up running from November 6 through to November 9 that features a £250,000 guaranteed prize pool that includes 100 x WPT500 seats.

The best place to qualify for the WPT500 UK is at partypoker where there are a number of daily freerolls taking place, meaning you could be playing for a share of £1 million for nothing at all! Those of you preferring cash buy-in tournaments will be delighted to know that there are WPT500 UK qualifiers running at partypoker with buy-ins ranging from $1 up to $50.

These qualifiers stop running on November 2 so you’ll need to act fast in order to bag yourself a cheap seat. Good luck.
