The inaugural partypoker Grand Prix Million may have only finished a couple of days ago, but the Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) management team aren’t resting on their laurels and are already preparing for their latest project, The Deepstack.
As the name suggests, The Deepstack features tournaments that see the players sit down with plenty of chips – 50,000 to be exact – and play to a slow and steady structure that allows for plenty of play.
The first event, the $500,000 guaranteed Deepstack, costs $500+$50 to enter and features two online legs. The Deepstack Online Day 1a kicks off at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 31 and has late registration until 10:16 p.m. Players in the online leg receive the same 50,000 as their live counterparts, but blind levels are reduced to 18-minutes from 45-minutes to reflect the high hands per hour dealt online.
There are five live legs to The Deepstack running from Thursday, June 4 through to Saturday, June 6. Each of these live legs cost $500+$50 to enter, see players sit with 50,000, and play to a 45-minute clock, although Day 1e is a turbo event that has 15-minute blinds.
Sandwiched between The Deepstack are three other tournaments. There’s a $1,500+$150 buy-in High Roller that has a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool, a $100,000 guaranteed 2nd Chance Deepstack and a $25,000 guaranteed Six-Max event for all of you action junkies out there.

Players in all of The Deepstack events are permitted to reenter once per Day 1 and can play multiple starting flights; however, they can only take their largest stack through to Day 2.
If the $500+$50 price tag is putting you off playing, don’t let it because there are many opportunities to win your way into these events at a steep discount. Every day, partypoker will run a number of DTD qualifiers that start as low as $0.01 to enter. There are then $5.50 and $27.50 buy-in events that feed into a $120 buy-in satellite where one in five entrants win a $550 seat.
