Coming Soon – partypoker Grand Prix Tour

Coming Soon – partypoker Grand Prix Tour

Saturday, 7 February 2015

Dusk Till Dawn chief Rob Yong announced details of a new partnership with partypoker earlier this week. He's now fleshed out some of the details including some exciting news about a new grassroots tournament series.

Writing on the DTD blog, Yong outlined plans for the new partypoker Grand Prix Tour. The series will feature guaranteed prize pools of £250,000 with an amazing buy-in of just £50! Yong confirmed that colleague Gary Oakes is currently “in discussion with various football stadiums” as each event would require fields of at least 5,000 runners to make it pay.

“The partypoker Grand Prix Tour will bring the DTD experience to you – the full DTD Crew will be present including Simon Trumper  to announce shuffle up and deal and the DTD Valets to serve you.”

Dusk Till Dawn has previous for delivering seemingly impossible guarantees. There'll be another £1m on offer in the next UKIPT Nottingham Main Event in April.

Yong has asked for patience from DTD's members during the transition to partypoker.

“Rome was not built in a day and neither was DTD - it was two years and £2m of delay costs before the government would even let us open our doors, but even the most opinionated poker player in the UK would struggle to say that DTD has not delivered exactly what the UK Poker Community ordered.”

“I need everyone who has faith in me delivering to get behind partypoker UK and not bust my balls over any previous partypoker experiences or current partypoker niggles, gripes and moans. Equally, please do not keep any current constructive negative feedback to yourself, but rather than slaughter me, DTD or partypoker on social media, give me your constructive feedback. I just need a little patience on your part to deliver the improvements.”

“Re-invigorating live and online poker in the UK means everyone will be a winner, not just recreational players but pro players will also benefit from a larger player pool.”
