• Over GBP 800,000 in total guaranteed prize pool
• A host of renowned players are expected to make an appearance
The interest in the upcoming poker festival is so great that Rob Yong, the chief of Dusk Till Dawn had to appeal to players in British gambling news, urging them to choose Wednesday as a starting day. He said: “DTD is a damn big card room with 50 tables, but this event is really building some serious momentum now, and I am a little concerned that we could end up turning players away on Thursday (Day 1b) because so far everyone is choosing that day to play.”
He went on to add: “Me and Simon have agreed there is no way we will deal this prestigious event 10 handed, just to get more players in, so our capacity is 450 and we will also need extra tables for satellites, PLO and cash games later on. The structure is so good that we don’t expect many bust-outs between 1pm and 6pm when the PLO starts, therefore, I am appealing to those players who can play Wednesday Day 1a to help me out and play that day :)”.
