The first of two opening flights in the £100,000 guaranteed Main Event starts at 1pm with the second and third following at the same time tomorrow and Friday.

In addition to the £400+£40 feature attraction there's plenty of side action to enjoy including a £100+£10 PLO tournament at 7pm tonight, a £100+£10 Button poker event 7pm on Thursday and a two-day £150+£15 NLHE event at 5pm on Saturday.
