The Festival Series Comes to Dusk Till Dawn; Satellites at PartyPoker
Table Of Contents
Dusk Till Dawn, Nottingham is gearing up to host the first The Festival Series of 2023, and it promises to be another hugely successful stop. Thirty-five events are scheduled across the series, which runs from February 12-19, including a £450 buy-in Main Event boasting a £200,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The Festival Series combines poker and casino games in one bustling package. How the organisers manage to cram in so much variety is a mystery because The Festival Series Nottingham has everything you can think of under one roof.
Everything kicks off with the £120 buy-in £25,000 guaranteed Poker Listings Championship on February 12. By the time the curtain comes down on proceedings and Dusk Till Dawn bolts shut its door on February 19, 35 champions will be crowned. Those champions will have taken down tournaments such as Sviten Special, No-Limit Hold'em Heads-Up, 8-Game, PLO High Roller, Round of Each NLHE/PLO, and Open Face Chinese. There are even blackjack and roulette events if casino table games are your forte.
It isn't only tournaments taking place at The Festival Series Nottingham, but also the famous Cash Game Challenge. The Cash Game Challenges each last two hours and the aim is to win the most big blinds throughout the entire series. Be the biggest winner in terms of big blinds, and a €1,600 package for the upcoming The Festival Series Malta is all yours! No-Limit Hold'em and Pot-Limit Omaha games are running with blinds from £1/£2 to £10/£10.
The Main Event features a quartet of flights, each costing £450. You sit down with 200,000 chips and play to a 30-minute clock. Late registration remains open for eight levels, and you can re-enter once per Day 1 before the registration desk closes. Each Day 1 plays until only 15% of the field remains, with those top 15% finishers progressing to Day 2 having secured a min-cash for their efforts. Day 1A starts on February 15 and the champion is crowned on February 19.
