Friday, 1 November 2013

Next year's Genting Poker Series will feature eight land-based stops including an event at Dusk Till Dawn organisers have confirmed. Star City in Birmingham will once again host the season opener.

Each stop on the season III tour will feature a guaranteed prize pool of £125,000 with the buy-in for each Main Event once again £400+£40. The exception will be the season ending £200,000 guaranteed tournament in Sheffield which will be a £800+£80 affair.

Sandwiched in between Birmingham and Sheffield is another visit to Sheffield as well as festivals in in Southend, Stoke, Newcastle, Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham and Edinburgh.

“We know people are anxious to have the dates for Series III,” said Kevin Proctor, Poker Manager at Genting UK. “It was the talk of the tables at Fountainpark, Edinburgh last week and therefore we are releasing them earlier than ever before.

“Our partnership with Dusk till Dawn goes from strength to strength and as such I am delighted that they will be hosting another leg within next year’s series in September. The club is tailor made to host a sensational GPS leg. Its location makes it easy for anyone in the country to get to and the layout of the venue is perfect for hosting a big field tournament and supporting some incredible side events and cash games.”

Dusk Till Dawn chief Rob Yong added, “The Genting Poker Series has established itself as one of the most popular poker tours in the UK and we expect DTD’s first event within the Series in January to be a sellout. Genting are putting a lot of commitment into poker and I am pleased that the popularity of the Series continues to grow year on year. It appeals to all facets of the poker world and by being part of Series III, DTD will have the summer to build the leg into something rather special."
