The year is rapidly drawing to a close, but the live poker scene is not showing many signs of slowing down with several major tournaments taking place in the United Kingdom and Ireland during December.

Dusk Till Dawn, Nottingham, is running two massive tournaments with combined guaranteed prize pools of £550,000. The first is the £300,000 Deepstack, an £550 ($675 if you play an online Day 1 at Partypoker) event that is sure to attract a huge field on December 2 through to December 4.

Nine days after the £300,000 Deepstack crowns its champion, Dusk Till Dawn hosts the £250,000 guaranteed Xmas Grand Prix, itself an £80+£10 ($109) buy in tournament that is played both at DTD and online at partypoker.
