£100K Gtd Grand Prix UK Kicks Off 2022 partypoker LIVE Events
partypoker LIVE has unveiled the first event of 2022, the Grand Prix UK. Taking place at the home of British poker, Dusk Till Dawn, the £150 buy-in Grand Prix UK two-day events comes with a £100,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The Grand Prix UK tournament offers plenty of flexibility for players because there are online flights in addition to live Day 1s. January 16 sees the first of these online Day 1s take place at partypoker. Everyone sits down with 100,000 chips, and plays to a 10-minute clock where the blinds start at 200/500/65a.
Play ends when only 15% of the field remains, and those players progress to the live Day 2 at the Nottingham-based Dusk Till Dawn knowing they are in the money.
Two of the four online flights are known as Sprints. As the name suggests, Sprint Day 1s are turbo-charged flights where the blinds increase every three minutes, making them ideal for players with limited spare time and who want to reach the money places faster.
Live Day 1s run on three consecutive days between January 20-22. They follow the same blind structure of the online flights, but come with 20-minute blinds. Day 2 sees the clock increase to 25-minutes.

It is possible to buy into the live Day 1s via the holding tanks in the partypoker lobby. Doing this enters you into a Golden Chip Last Longer where the player who lasts the longest wins a £1,100 Main Event ticket for a soon-to-be-announced festival taking place in March.
Check out the partypoker lobby to find satellites into this exciting tournament. The satellite tree starts at $0.01, moves to £4.40, then £22. It is in the £22 buy-in satellites where between three and ten £150 Grand Prix UK seats are guaranteed.
Please note that all the Day 1s, including those running online, have a player cap because Dusk Till Dawn is not operating at full capacity at this time. Players are advised to buy in sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
partypoker’s head of Live Events, Dan Rose, cannot wait to welcome players through the doors of the iconic Dusk Till Dawn club.
"We’re really looking forward to getting back to live poker and returning to Dusk Till Dawn with the much-loved Grand Prix brand. The team can’ wait to be back on the ground and meet the players after such a long time away."
