Ok, listen guys i know we have got kind of sidetracked with all the hype over the small matter of guaranteeing £1,000,000 in April but that doesn't mean you should stop playing till then!
Our first £150 with £50,000 guarantee had 150 players on Day 1a, tonight we only started with 43 and now have 82, we will need a big turnout tomorrow or we are going to be losing a big chunk of change so if you're free tomorrow come down between 2pm and 9pm when late reg ends.
We are trying a new structure this week with some extra levels added in eg 250 500 / 500 1000 / 25,000 50,000 so should be an even better experience with 15,000 chips and a 40 minute clock.

Today is going to be tight, you will see me checking the car park every 5 minutes lol, we ended up with 112 entries putting £16,800 in the prizepool so need 221 to make the £50,000 guarantee or will have a sizeable overlay, the new structure is working well, at start of level 11 average big blind was 80 !!!!! Hope to see at least 100 players sat down at 2pm, will let you know how we are doing.
We are offerring STT's to win seats for the UKIPT, one table will be £85, two tables £43, winner gets a £770 seat to the £1,000,000 guaranteed in April, 3000 chips 10 min clock, will take approx 1.5 - 2 hrs. Available either on demand if we have a dealer available or from 9pm Fri - Sun.

We started the £150 with 79 players, almost certain to be an overlay between £2000 - £5000, late reg is till 9pm. We have decided to add a £50 + £6 UKIPT satellite with 2 x £770 seats guaranteed at 8pm, late reg to 9.50 so come and win your seat tonight and have a shot at the £1,000,000 prizepool.

With so much happening over the next few weeks and UKIPT satellites we have decided to bring the price of our main evening event down to £40 + 1 but still guaranteed at 100 players, this will start tomorrow, winner will still get circa £1200, this means players that were doing 5 x £50 with a spend of £250 can now play 6 for £240, be interesting to see if this is more popular at this buy in level, no doubt we will get hit for overlays a few times as it has become apparrent that players are saving their money for the UKIPT

So far we have 649 of the 1428 entries required in the UKIPT, starting this week there will be 120 seats guaranteed in satellites at the club, most will be 5 seats replacing our nightly comp at 8pm but there will also be 4 x 10 seats at the weekend starting this Saturday and then Mon / Tue of the event we have 2 x 20 seats, the 5 and 10 are £50 and the 20 £100.

The UKIPT is absolutely flying, since we announced Day1c was full the direct buy ins have shot up, everyone wants to have a go at this massive £1,000,000 prizepool, please buy in asap if you want to be sat at the start as i expect queues every day for the 6 levels of late reg. I am glad we agreed with Stars to drop our monthly £500 but a little concerned that with the interest in the UKIPT we could get caught out this weekend having Super Sized our £150, it starts at 2pm tomorrow and Saturday and we need 667 entries to hit the £100,000 guarantee, could be huge value!
Also, all this week and right up to Day 1a we are running daily satellites at the club with 2 on Sunday. So far this week there have been small overlays each night with 5 seats guaranteed. Tomorrow we have 10 seats guaranteed at 8pm and a further 10 Saturday 8 pm and Sunday 2pm, these could prove to be the best odds of getting in cheap, there is no doubt next week will be one of the highlights of Dusk Till Dawns achievements if we can hit the £1,000,000 guarantee, i hope you will join us at some point next week, even if just for a side event, the atmosphere will be electric.

Starting tonight we have made a few changes to our regular evening comps. Following our new policy the £15 and £40 are now inclusive of reg fee. The £15 remains at 15 minute clock and 10,000 chips and a start time of 7.30pm with late reg till 8.45pm while the £40 now starts with 15,000 chips and a 15 minute clock and starts at 7.45 with late reg to 9pm. For one week we will allow a discretion of 2... extra levels for late reg / re entry while players get used to it.
Now, before everyone starts complaining at losing the 20 minute clock on the £40 even though we have increased the chips by 50% there is a reason which will improve the experience at Dusk Till Dawn and allow players to learn how to play slower structured comps.
We are now using our new Deepstack structure that has received overwhelming praise for all our events, only the clock will change. This means that the weekly events now benefit from 5 extra levels, 100 200 25, 250 500 50, 500 1000 100, 1200 2400 300 and 2500 5000 500, this is basically the EPT structure or apart from the first 5 levels identical to the WSOP Main Event structure and we are using this for comps costing £15 up.
We hope this helps prevent any comp from becoming a crap shoot and allows all our players to progress through the buy ins without having to constantly adapt.
Looking forward to the feedback over the coming weeks.
