Dusk Till Dawn once again plays host to a major live tournament when the World Poker Tour takes $1 million guaranteed National Main Event to the Nottingham-based poker venue.
The WPT National UK Main Event is a $1,100 buy-in tournament where players sit down at the partypoker-branded tables with 30,000 chips and play to an hour-long clock (24-minutes for the online Day 1s).
