The award winning Nottingham venue will also be the venue for PartyPoker.com's 48-hour cash game marathon known as The Big Game. The £25/£50 no limit hold'em action gets under way at 8pm on Friday and will run non stop until 8pm on Sunday. A host of top names are set to play including the likes of Tony G, Luke ‘FullFlush’ Schwartz, Dave ‘The Devilfish’ Ulliott, Sam Trickett, David ‘Viffer’ Peat, Annette Obrestad, Bruno Fitoussi, Neil Channing, Jennifer Tilly, Roberto Romanello, Robert Williamson III, Toby Lewis, Andrew Feldman, Alec Torelli, JP Kelly and Dusty Schmidt.

Viewers will be able to follow all the action as it happens as well as being given the opportunity to eliminate players from the game courtesy of the live stream on the PartyPoker blog.

A PartyPoker.com spokesman said: “The innovation of introducing streaming and evictions will make for engaging viewing. This is no ordinary poker live stream, you will get hole cards, graphics and the tv commentary from Jesse May and a variety of co-commentators over 48 hours – it will be like watching it on TV. Who’s a nit? Who don’t you like? You have influence! The only exceptions to eviction are that statistically the most active player is exempt and that each of the ‘PartyPoker.com Wildcard’ online qualifiers are guaranteed four hours play.”
