  1. Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham has hosted live tournaments with some of the biggest turnouts in history. The casino attracted an impressive 4,932 players for its Grand Prix in 2013, for example. It appears DTD is about to smash this figure by teaming up with PartyPokerfor a $120 buy-in tournament featuring a huge $1 million guarantee. It's called the Grand Prix Million and runs from May 15 to 25. To put how big this tournament is into perspective, DTD and PartyPoker will need to attract 10,000 entrants in order to meet the $1 million guarantee, or more than double the largest field ever attracted by DTD in the past. PartyPoker and DTD recently engaged in a multi-year marketing partnership where PartyPoker will be hosting DTD satellites for its live events in its poker client and DTD will be splashing its poker room with PartyPoker branding. This tournament takes the agreement one step further since part of the tournament will actually take place in the PartyPoker client. The tournament will feature 18 opening days, nine of them to be played online at PartyPoker and another nine to be played live at DTD. Players who advance to Day 2, regardless of whether it was online or live, will face off on May 24 before the field is whittled down further for the final day on May 25. This author can't think of another event that has ever had this type of structure. The World Series of Poker for the first time in history is holding an online bracelet event this year, but even this event does not combine online and live poker into one giant event. DTD owner Rob Yong is excited about potentially creating poker history with this combined online and live tournament. "This is a huge target, but I believe it is possible," said Yong when asked about the undertaking. "I remember the first ever Grand Prix in September 2010 with a £50 buy-in and a £40,000 guarantee requiring 800 entrants. We broke the UK record and it was one of our proudest moments. So, five years later, to achieve 10,000 entries and a $1 million prize pool would be simply amazing." PartyPoker is equally excited about the Grand Prix Million and is creating a big incentive for players to qualify in online. The first 1,000 players who qualify for this tournament through PartyPoker will receive a Golden Chip, which will entitle any player who reaches the final table an extra $25,000 in addition to their share of the at least $1 million prize pool.

  2. [caption width="640"] The World Poker Tour has partnered with Dusk Till Dawn to create The Devilfish Cup[/caption] British poker legend Dave 'Devilfish' Ulliott tragically passed away in April of last year after a short battle with terminal liver cancer. Now, the WPT Foundation and England’s Dusk Till Dawn poker club are teaming up to honor the memory of the poker pro with the inaugural Devilfish Cup, a £1 million guaranteed tournament that takes place during the partypoker World Poker Tour UK festival. The event kicks off on Monday, October 31 and features a buy-in of £5,000 with a £300 donation. The donated money, along with 3% of the prize pool, will be split between the Marie Curie organization, a nonprofit which provides support to terminally ill patients, and a trust fund for Ulliott’s daughter Lucy. “We are proud to announce the Devilfish Cup for the partypoker WPT UK festival at Dusk Till Dawn, and to honor and celebrate Dave ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott alongside his family, friends, and fellow competitors,” said WPT President and CEO Adam Pliska. “As a testament to the community’s dedication and contributions, WPT Foundation has helped raise more than $6 million to date, and we look forward to supporting another non-profit program of excellence in Marie Curie.” Ulliott, whose poker career began more than 20 years ago, was instrumental in popularizing the game in the UK and Europe. In 1997, the poker pro earned his first and only World Series of Poker bracelet at the $2,000 Pot Limit Hold ‘em event. In 2007, he had his biggest career cash after taking third at the WPT Doyle Brunson Classic for $674,500. With more than $6.2 million in live tournament winnings to his name, the 61-year-old holds the distinction of being the second biggest winner in UK poker history, behind only Sam Trickett. Devilfish was well known for his lively personality which sometimes stirred controversy but always entertained. After his death, poker pros Phil Hellmuth, Tony G and others made a push to induct Ulliott into the 2015 Poker Hall of Fame. 2014 Hall of Famer Daniel Negreanu stirred controversy at the time by writing that death shouldn’t have any bearing on a player’s inclusion in the prestigious club. In addition to the Devilfish Cup, Dusk Till Dawn will further honor the pro by renaming his favorite drink, a double vodka Red Bull, to “The Devilfish.” The venue will also throw a party in the poker pro’s name on Wednesday, November 2, where family, friends and fans can celebrate the life of Ulliott while a live band jams to some of his favorite tunes. “Rob Yong, owner of Dusk Till Dawn, announced after Dave’s funeral that we would wait a while before announcing plans to honor him,” said Simon Trumper, Dusk Till Dawn Club Director and friend of Ulliott. “During his last few days, Rob visited Dave and asked him how he wanted to be remembered. He asked us to hold a high buy-in event at the club, as Dave was always proud of his WPT Tunica win,” Trumper continued. “We thought it fitting to replace this year’s High Roller with the Devilfish Cup. World Poker Tour and WPT Foundation have been great and it is a pleasure to be working with them on this inaugural event.” partypoker will make the event accessible to all by running several satellites into the tournament and qualifiers as low as one cent. The winner of the Cup will not only receive the biggest share of the £1 million prize, but will be presented the trophy by Ulliott’s wife, Anpaktita.
  3. [caption width="640"] Vojtech Ruzicka captured the partypokerLive High Roller event at the Dusk Till Dawn. (PokerListings photo)[/caption] Long before he made the World Series of Poker Main Event final table and the exclusive fraternity of November Nine members, Vojtech Ruzicka was a respected player and more than accomplished professional. Ruzicka added another great result to his poker resume today by winning the £10,300 High Roller at the Dusk Till Dawn as part of the partypokerLive series that is ongoing in Nottingham, England. Ruzicka defeated a tough final table filled with World Poker Tour champions and did so after starting the final table near the top in chips as he outlasted a phenomenal 110 player field. The nine-handed final table had its first casualty in the opening level of play and it was Ruzicka handing out the elimination ticket. Jason Wheeler opened for 125,000 from the hijack and Ruzicka jammed for 3,400,000 out of the small blind. Daniel Merrilees called all in for 578,000 in the big blind and Wheeler got out of the way. Merrilees was ahead with [poker card="qh"][poker card="qd"] against the [poker card="tc"][poker card="ts"] of Ruzicka heading to the flop. The [poker card="ks"][poker card="6h"][poker card="4d"] flop was clean for Merrilees but the [poker card="td"] turn gave Ruzicka a set. Merrilees failed to catch up on the river and exited the stage. 45 minutes later, 2016 Bay 101 Champion Stefan Schillhabel was all in for five big blinds with [poker card="kd"][poker card="qd"] against the [poker card="as"][poker card="9c"] of Bartlomiej Machon. The board ran all low cards and Schillhabel finished in eighth place. Machon notched another bustout shortly after eliminating Schillhabel. Laszlo Bujtas moved all in for 693,000 from early position with [poker card="kc"][poker card="jd"] and found himself in trouble against the [poker card="as"][poker card="js"] of Machon. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="5d"][poker card="3h"][poker card="ts"][poker card="jc"] board did little for Bujtas and he took home seventh place. There was yet another elimination in a relatively short time span with Wheeler the next player on the chopping block. With the blinds at 30,000/60,000, Wheeler shoved for 1,252,000 from the small blind and was called by Machon in the big blind. Wheeler was live with [poker card="jc"][poker card="th"] but would need help against the [poker card="ac"][poker card="7h"] of Machon. No card above a nine hit the flop, turn or river and Machon took down his third straight opponent. Ruzicka gave Machon a breather and eliminated Joao Simao in fifth place to wrap up the first day of the final table. Simao got his last 522,000 in the middle from the big blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="2s"] against the [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"] of Ruzicka. After coming from behind the first time he took down a final table opponent, Ruzicka held with the better hand to make the final table four-handed. When play resumed, it over an hour for the first player to leave the live stream stage with Chris Backhouse the unlucky competitor. Satellite qualifier Chris Backhouse moved all in for 1,015,000 from the small blind and Machon called out of the big blind. Backhouse and his [poker card="qh"][poker card="js"] were behind the [poker card="kh"][poker card="3h"] of Machon and the [poker card="8h"][poker card="6c"][poker card="3d"] flop did Backhouse no good. The [poker card="8d"] turn kept Machon ahead and the [poker card="4h"] was the final nail in Backhouse’s coffin. Tom Hall advanced to the podium stage of the event but would have to settle with the bronze medal. Ruzicka raised on the button and Hall moved all in for 1,825,000 with [poker card="as"][poker card="2d"]. Ruzicka called with [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"] and managed to hold through the [poker card="jd"][poker card="6c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="8d"][poker card="8h"] board to bring the tournament down to heads up play. Once Hall was on his way to the payout cage, Ruzicka and Machon made an ICM deal that left £50,000 to play for along with the trophy. Ruzicka locked up £234,210 while Machon guaranteed himself £220,790. The players also agreed to shorten the levels to 20 minutes as they got ready to play out the rest of the event. The match went back and forth for many levels before Ruzicka locked up the title over the course of two hands. With the blinds at 200,000/400,000, Ruzicka was all in for 3,290,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="6s"] against the [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"] of Machon. The [poker card="ad"][poker card="7h"][poker card="5h"] flop was exactly was Ruzicka was looking for as he paired his ace to take the lead. Machon failed to catch up on the last two community cards and was down to just over 10 big blinds. Machon was all in for those final chips a few hands later with [poker card="as"][poker card="7d"] against the [poker card="ks"][poker card="4c"] of Ruzicka. As he did throughout the final table, Ruzicka found the right card when he needed it and hit the [poker card="kc"] on the flop to take the lead. Despite picking up the [poker card="7c"] on the turn, Machon improved no further and finished in second place. Final Table Payouts Vojtech Ruzicka - £284,210* Bartlomiej Machon - £220,790* Tom Hall - £142,000 Chris Backhouse- £110,000 Joao Simao - £85,000 Jason Wheeler - £65,000 Laszlo Bujtas - £50,000 Stefan Schillhabel - £40,000 Daniel Merrilees - £30,000 *reflects heads up deal
  4. [caption width="680"] Dusk Till Dawn is hosting the partypoker Millions event of 2017.[/caption] Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham, England, and partypoker are teaming up for the largest live event in partypoker history. The partypoker Millions is a £6,000,000 guaranteed event with a £5,300 buy-in and online qualifiers start at just $0.01. The partypoker Million event in Sochi, Russia drew record crowds with more expected this time around. The Phase 1 stage of the event is ongoing on partypoker online with multiple flights running each day. Satellites are available starting at just $0.01 with the option to buy in directly for £550. The Phase 1 qualifiers contain 12-minute blinds and players start with 100,000 chips in pursuit of their Day 1 seat. All players who qualified either online or live for £550 now have either option available to them as they start the process of making April 20th’s live Day 2. Even if you can’t make it to Dusk Till Dawn until April 21st’s Day 3, there are Day 1 and Day 2 flights available to play at one of the Dusk Till Dawn’s many live partners. The first online Day 1 ran on April 9 and another will be kicking off on Sunday, April 16. The live versions inside Dusk Till Dawn are taking place on April 16,18, and 19. Both processes of qualification require a £5,300 buy in, for which players will receive 1,000,000 chips and play 10 60-minute levels. Buy ins are available up until the start of Level 19 on Day 2 when players still have the option to buy in for £5,300 for the same chip amount. All players who advance from their respective Day 2 sessions, will return to Dusk Till Dawn on April 21 as the full three-day portion of onsite play kicks into gear with a champion being crowned on April 23.

  5. [caption width="640"] Rob Yong is the brains behind Dusk Till Dawn Casino and one of the most talked about poker tournaments of 2017. (WPT photo)[/caption] Dusk Till Dawn Casino and partypokerLive aimed for the stars with their £6,000,000 guaranteed event that wrapped up last weekend in Nottingham, England. The event drew a total field size of over 8,500 entrants that played in online and live stages of the tournament before the field combined at Dusk Till Dawn. The guarantee was exceeded and in the end, Maria Lampropulos walked away with the title and £1,000,000 first place prize. Overall, the event was a huge success but none of it would have been possible with the guiding touch of Dusk Till Dawn Founder, Rob Yong. The casino set in the UK Midlands has gradually become a more popular destination for tournaments with each passing year and it is Yong who is primarily responsible for that. Yong’s passion for the game shines through in every decision he’s made since Dusk Till Dawn first opened 10 years ago, and knows that it was only a matter of time before a tournament of this magnitude took place. “It was always our target when we opened DTD to deliver a £1,000,000 for the winner event within the first five years, but it has taken us 10 years to get there, so it’s been a long time coming, I don’t think we got there earlier because of our problems finding the right online partner, I think we have changed online partners five times in the last 10 years which I would say is the reason why it’s taken so long," said Yong. "We have extended our partypoker partnership until the end of 2021 so we now have stability so I feel we can push the bar much higher both in the UK and internationally.” The initiative required by Yong to put a seven-figure first place prize up for grabs and cooperative nature to find the right online partner played a strong role in making the partypokerLIVE Millions happen. This is far from the first major tour stop to come through Yong’s casino and the learning experiences from the previous series over the years prepared him for one of the biggest events on the poker calendar. “(This event ranks) up there with the ISPT Wembley and Caribbean Poker Party, I don’t think WPT and UKIPT can really compare fairly as they were very UK focused events, whereas ISPT, CPP, and MILLIONS were global," said Yong. "ISPT Wembley had its logistical challenges which made it special, CPPs are great as they are holidays - but this MILLIONS was very special because of the atmosphere at the event. Overall, MILLIONS probably ranks at #1 because we had 2 x £1M side events which both hit, I know the £6M Main gets the headlines but the overall schedule was special.” Yong is the primary catalyst for pushing Dusk Till Dawn to reach this point but he is tremendously appreciative of his staff for their hard work. As much as he would like to, Yong isn’t able to work on every aspect of the events at his casino. The Dusk Till Dawn and partypoker staff received high praise from Yong for making sure it went off without a hitch. “It sounds a cliche, but I am more happy for the staff who have worked so hard and have taken some big hits over the years to build the reputation of the Club to a level when this type of event was possible. It’s not a massive deal for me personally, to be honest, I really just get enjoyment out of the DTD and partypoker staff feeling a sense of achievement and believing that we can do great things for the poker world if we work together. This is a decent start to a much bigger project.”
  6. [caption width="640"] Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham, England is about to host some of poker's biggest stars.[/caption] Considered by most to be the heart and soul of poker in England, the Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham will soon be hosting some of the world's best poker players for one of the biggest guarantees any European event has held in years. The first ever parytpoker Millions takes over DTD April 14 - 23 with six events and guarantees totaling £8,000,000 - with the Main Event guaranteeing £6,000,000. The Millions Main Event runs April 18 - 23 with a £5,300 buy-in, but players can start playing Phase 1 on partypoker or live at Dusk Till Dawn for just £550. The online Phase 1 events play 19 12-minute levels and players carry their chips forward to the Day 1. Along with the £6,000,000 guaranteed prize pool, Dusk Till Dawn has also guaranteed £1,000,000 to the eventual champion. A number of top players have already confirmed they'll be headed to Nottingham to play, including former #1-ranked PocketFivers; Griffin Benger, Joao Simao and Patrick Leonard. When partypoker announced plans for a live tour, it was obvious that Dusk Till Dawn would be the host for what should be considered the flagship event in Season 1. Following the partypoker Live Million Sochi event last month in Russia, this will be the first partypoker Live event in England. The Main Event is certainly the big attraction, but the other six events give players a multitude of options with buy-ins ranging from £220 up to £2,700 with most event offering re-entry. There's also live satellites running at the club now. "There are so many huge guaranteed events on this schedule I can’t wait to be back at Dusk Till Dawn to play all of them! There are a range of events for everyone," said Sam Trickett, partypoker Ambassador. "You can either buy-in direct or there is also a great satellite schedule that gives players of all bankrolls the opportunity to become a millionaire at Dusk Till Dawn next month."

  7. [caption width="640"] The partypoker MILLIONS will pay £1,000,000 to the eventual champion[/caption] Online poker powerhouse Partypoker has announced the £5 million partypoker MILLIONS, a hybrid online and live poker event which guarantees a massive £1 million to the winner. The tournament is a throwback to the site’s landmark PartyPoker Million events, which began over 15 years ago and were instrumental in the company’s success in the online poker market. MILLIONS, which boasts the largest guaranteed poker prize pool ever awarded in Europe, will be hosted on partypoker.com, as well as in card rooms across the United Kingdom and internationally. Qualifying players will come together at Nottingham’s Dusk Till Dawn poker club on April 20 to battle for the seven-figure first-place prize. Sign-up now for partypoker and win your way into the partypoker MILLIONS and your shot at £1,000,000 While the tournament may be over half a year away, players can begin their journey to the final table on partypoker starting October 4, when the site runs the first online Day 1 for a buy-in of £500 + £50. Day 1s will also be offered live at Dusk Till Dawn, as well as at affiliated card rooms, at a soon-to-be-determined date. Players who advance through Day 1 will carry their chips over to either Dusk Till Dawn or go online for Day 2. players who feel like skipping Day 1 altogether, have the option of buying into Day 2 directly for £5,000 + £300 and receiving 1 million in chips. Players who don’t make Day 2 on their first try, can play as many Day 1s as they like. Players who make Day 2 more than once, can play more Day 2s and take their largest end-of-the-day stack into Day 3. As an added bonus for early birds, partypoker is running a promotion that gives a £550 cash prize to the first 100 players to make Day 2. The site is also integrating MILLIONS into its Caribbean Poker Party event in the Dominican Republic in November. At the end of the week, partypoker will run two Day 1s and Day 2s, with those lucky enough to make Day 3 taking home a $1,500 cash bonus. The extra prize money will not be deducted from the MILLIONS prize pool. Partypoker brand ambassador Mike Sexton, who was integral in making the inaugural Million event a success, will be back on hand to host the tournament. “I am absolutely thrilled to host and bring back the partypoker MILLIONS in its original format with £1,000,000 guaranteed to the winner,” Sexton said. “This multi-venue, live and online event gives players the chance to qualify all over the world and win a share of the huge £5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. This will be THE event of 2017 which I will not be missing and means a lot to me as this is how my partypoker journey started.” With its combination of live and online play, coupled with a final table set on a cruise ship, the original Million tournament was seen as unique and innovative when it debuted in 2001. That year, poker pro Kathy Liebert beat out a field of mostly amateur online players to take home the title and a check for $1 million. For those not looking to shell out the £550 buy-in for Day 1, partypoker will, of course, be offering plenty of qualifiers on the site. “Not only can partypoker players win a share of £5,000,000, they will be able to qualify online from as little as $0.01,” said Group Head of partypoker Tom Waters. “We continually look to challenge ourselves and add value for the players. The partypoker MILLIONS does just that, offering the global poker community the opportunity to become a millionaire.”
