DTD to Trial Multi Prizepool Poker
Monday, 31 December 2012
Dusk Till Dawn has been at the forefront of many great innovations on the live UK poker scene and the Nottingham club is set to trial another in the form of Multi Prizepool Poker (MPP).
Created by top UK pro Roberto Romanello, Multi Prizepool Poker is a single tournament with three levels of buy-in which create multiple prize pools.
An MPP tournament is offered with 3 buy in levels, for example, £25 / £50 / £100 that will create 3 prizepools.
A player who chooses to buy in for the minimum £25 will play only for prizepool 1. A player buying in for £50 will automatically be entered into prizepool 1 where they will have £25 invested. They will also be entered into prizepool 2 with an additional investment of £25. Players buying in for the maximum £100 will be entered into both the £25 prizepools as well as having £50 invested in prizepool 3.
All of the entrants then play in a single tournament that has 3 separate prizepools determined by buy-in and number of runners in each.
If a player who bought in for £100 is victorious, they would scoop the 1st prize from all 3 prizepools.
If a player who entered for £50 wins they would get top prize from prizepool 1 and prizepool 2 while the highest finishing prizepool 3 player will win the 1st prize from prizepool 3.
If a player from prizepool 1 wins they will just receive that 1st prize.
The other in the money places would be dependant on finishing positions and buy-in. For example, players buying into prizepool 1 would only be eligible to cash from the first prize pool pot.
“This concept allows all players regardless of bankroll to play in a single tournament with high guarantees creating huge prizepools instead of separate events with lower guarantees split between them,” read a statement from MPP. “The players in prizepool 1ill now have a substantially increased prizepool available.”
MPP will get its first outing at Dusk Till Dawn on 10 January in a £5,000 guaranteed event. It will certainly be one to keep an eye on.
