  • The opening leg of the Unibet Poker 2016 UK Tour takes place at the Redezvous Casino, Brighton, from Feb. 12.

Head to the Rendezvous Casino Brighton this weekend and you'll find it packed to the rafters with poker players looking to become the first-ever champion of the Unibet Poker UK Tour.

For £200+£20, players in the inaugural Unibet Poker 2016 UK Tour Brighton Main Event receive 25,000 chips and have the opportunity to compete for a share of a prize pool guaranteed at £40,000. Two starting flights are available, one at 7:00 p.m. on February 12, with the second and final Day 1 commencing at 1:00 p.m. on February 13. The tournament concludes on February 14 after a 1:00 p.m. kick off.

The Main Event is played to a reentry format, which means anyone busting on either Day 1a or Day 1b can reenter and take another shot at glory. Alternatively, players can opt to play on both starting flights and take their largest stack through to the final day on February 14.

Speaking of hosting the opening stop of the Unibet Poker 2016 UK Tour, the Venue Director at Rendezvous Casino said: "We were thrilled to get such an overwhelmingly positive response to the poker tournament launch event last month at the Red Lounge. It has set us up as the number one destination for poker in Brighton and the South East. All eyes are now on this weekend's Unibet Poker main event which features a phenomenal £40,000 guaranteed prizepool. With such high stakes on offer, Rendezvous Casino Brighton will offer the biggest buzz in town."
