£150,000 Grand Prix UK Heads Online to partypoker
May 3-10 are the dates you want to keep free for playing poker because of the £150,000 guaranteed Grand Prix UK heads online to partypoker.
The Grand Prix tournaments are extremely popular live events that give players the chance to play for a relatively massive prize pool for a low initial buy-in. Like its live counterpart, this online Grand Prix UK features several starting flights, 19 in total, and players are permitted to play in as few or many as they wish.
Play concludes at the end of the 15th level in each Day 1. Anyone with chips in front of them at this point progresses to the Final Day on May 10 where at least £150,000 will be dished out. Only your largest stack is uploaded to the final day if you progress from a Day 1 on more than one occasion.
Each Day 1 sees players sit down with 50,000 chips and play to a 12-minute clock. The two Day 1s scheduled for May 10 are slightly different in that they are turbo (six-minute clock) and hyper-turbo (three-minute clock) formats.
Grand Prix Online Series
The Grand Prix UK is restricted to players whose partypoker accounts are registered to an address in the United Kingdom. Four other Grand Prix events are also scheduled, one each for Russia, Canada, Germany, and Brazil. Again, these are restricted to players from each respective country.
|Grand Prix UK||£55||£150,000||UK players only|
|Grand Prix Russia||5,500||10 million||Russian players only|
|Grand Prix Canada||CAD$55||CAD$100,000||Canadian players only|
|Grand Prix Germany||€55||€50||Germany players only|
|Grand Prix Brazil||$55||$50,000||Brazilian players only|
All five Grand Prix run on the same dates and there is a reason for this. The winners of each Grand Prix, plus the champion of the Grand Prix 4 Dealers tournament that runs April 26-May 3, receive an entry to a free six-handed sit & go tournament where everyone locks up an additional prize.
The winner of the SNG of Champions secures a $5,500 WPT Passport package. There’s also a $3,200 WPT Main Event seat, a $1,600 WPTDeepStacks seat, and a trio of WPT500 seats waiting to be won.
Grand Prix For Dealers Online Accessible To Everyone
Grand Prix 4 Dealers Online runs April 26 through May 1, costs $55 and has a $250,000 guarantee. It is open to every single partypoker player. $5 from each buy-in is donated to a fund to help assist freelance poker dealers who are currently unable to work.
Dusk Till Dawn owner Rob Yong is matching the first £100,000 raised in what is a fantastic gesture.
