The latest Genting Poker Series live event gets under way today in Nottingham and according to those involved it could be the tour's largest ever tournament.
Taking place inside Dusk Till Dawn and backed by a £100,000 guarantee, the £400+£40 Main Event has already broken its £100,000 and the card room's owner, Rob Yong, has predicted the field could reach 1,000. Thanks to a combination of live and online satellites the number of pre-registered players has already hit 350 and many more are expected to ante-up before the registration desks close later this week. Over 100 took to the tables for yesterday's opening online flight.By all accounts those involved in the festival are hoping the prizepool will reach the £400,000 mark, something which would certainly set a benchmark for the tour throughout the rest of 2014. Organisers are expecting such a big crowd for Friday's Day 1c that the side event line up has been rescheduled. The £50k GTD, £150 buy-in side event will now start at 5pm on Saturday. The £100 Turbo event has been cancelled.Qualify for future GPS events online at Genting Poker where new players that deposit £10 will get £40 and a free £5.50 GPS satellite token.
