Dusk Till Dawn to Host GGPoker UK Poker Championships
After a five-year hiatus, the UK Poker Championships (UKPC) is returning to Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) in Nottingham. Thanks to a partnership with GGPoker, the GGPoker UK Poker Championships begins next week at DTD. The Festival runs from January 11-16 with 11 events on the schedule including a £500,000 guaranteed Main Event.
This will be GGPoker’s first directly branded live event, though they offer plenty of opportunities to qualify for the festival online. UKPC daily events and satellites are running now including more than 75 Main Event seats won for just $1. For more details check out GGPoker’s UKPC tournament page here.
GGPoker also offers two online Day 1 starting flights to the £560 buyin £500,000 guaranteed UKPC Main Event. The online Day 1A flight is slated for January 7th with online Day 1B on January 12th. The first live Day 1 flight begins on January 13th. There are a total of five starting flights — two online and three live. Players start with 200,000 chips and may re-enter once before Level 9.
