Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) is running yet another fantastic poker festival, one that takes place between August 29 and September 6.
Pokerfest Live is the first-ever live edition of partypoker’s Pokerfest series both DTD and partypoker are going all out to ensure that this inaugural live event is an instant hit with the British poker loving public.
Kicking off on August 28 is the £60+£10 Mini Live, which features a £150,000 guaranteed prize pool, sees players sit down with 50,000 stacks and play to a 30-minute clock. Some £33,000 of that guaranteed prize pool is made up of 100 seats to the £300+£30 buy-in Pokerfest Live Main Event, more on that later.
Sandwiched between the Mini Live and the Main Event are a number of different varieties and formats including a £60+£10 six-max tournament, a pot limit Omaha double chance, and two special tournaments that are something of a rarity in the UK, a Seniors (age 50+) and a Ladies-only event.
The £300,000 guaranteed Main Event (includes 25 x £2,200 WPT seats) runs from September 3 through to September 6 and needs 1,000 players in order to hit the guarantee. Players can either buy in directly with cash, or use any $550 tickets that they’ve won at partypoker. Should a player have won two $550 tickets, they can exchange one at the DTD cage for cash to help cover some of their expenses.

Double Your Winnings With Golden Chips
Players at partypoker have until August 31 to earn themselves some Golden Chips. Up to five of these chips can be earned and it really pays to get your hands on some because there are some amazing prizes for those holding them.
Everyone who earns a single Golden Chip is automatically entered into a Last Longer where the last Golden Chip player standing wins a $3,500 DTD Ticket that can be used for the soon-to-be announced WPT Nottingham, with the top 100 receiving DTD tickets with values of between $5.50 and $550.
What’s more, players who earn multiple chips who then go on and reach the final table receive a cash boost of between £1,000 and £15,000 and anyone who earns five Golden Chips and goes on to win the Pokerfest Live Main Event has their winnings doubled!
You earn one Golden Chip when you hit 50 points (you earn two points per $1 paid in rake or tournament fees), two when you reach 200 points and three when 750 points are earned. You’ll need 2,000 points to earn four Golden Chips with 5,000 being the points target if you want to have five Golden Chips in your arsenal.
