Fans of well-structured live events that carry substantial guarantees need to jump into their cars, put the postcode NG7 2UW into their satellite navigation device and begin their journey towards Europe’s premier poker room, Dusk Till Dawn (DTD).
The Monthly DTD Deepstack already represents good value for players thanks to its fantastic blind structure, the fact it pays out £150 to every player who reaches Day 2, carries a £300,000 guarantee and all for £330, but this latest edition could be the best value yet as it is competing with two other major live events that are running alongside it.
With numbers in the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) Leeds Main Event Day 1a looking solid, and the partypoker WPT National London festival kicking off this evening, many of the DTD Deepstack’s regulars could be otherwise engaged and although that is not good news for DTD owner Rob Yong and his team, those looking to squeeze every penny of value from a poker tournament could do worse that looking at the schedule in Nottingham.

First on the agenda is the £1,000+£100 buy-in High Roller that opens its doors at 7:00pm on Thursday 30 July. Players in this event receive 50,000 chips, play to a 40-minute clock and for a share of £60,000 that includes four WPT seats worth £2,200 each.
Late registration is open until 2:00pm on Friday 31 July, so those who cannot make it to DTD today have until the next afternoon to hightail it to Nottingham and get in on the action.
The first Day 1 of the Deepstack Live begins at 2:00pm on Friday 31 July – online Day 1s have been running at partypoker since July 26 – and guarantees at least £300,000 will be distributed among those who finish in the money. £55,000 of that prize pool is made up of 25 x £2,200 WPT seats, which can be used for the upcoming WPT Nottingham that is scheduled to run in early November.
There is still time to win your way into this month’s Deepstack Live via the special ticket tournaments running at DTD’s partner, partypoker.
Running at 7:00pm, and 11:00pm there is a $120 buy-in tournament called $550 DTD Tickets that have one $550 (£330) ticket guaranteed, with a $120 buy-in satellite with 20 seats guaranteed commencing at 9:00pm.
Players who have an abundance of partypoker points can exchange these in the points store for a $550 (£330) ticket. Gold VIPs can exchange 5,500 points for the ticket (representing 20% rakeback) while the cost is 3,650 to Palladium VIPs (representing 30.14% rakeback).
