ISPT $30m guaranteed Wembley event – more information

Thursday, 6 October 2011

The epic advert showing the world’s biggest poker tournament taking place at a packed-out Wembley Stadium certainly piqued our interest in the past week and now we can bring you more information about the event, that appears to be organised by potential Full Tilt Poker investors the Bernard Tapie Group.

According to, the ISPT will be organised each year in “internationally renowned stadiums”. The event is reserved for players who qualify online, from “online poker websites and casino operators selected by ISPT”. The first stage of the tournament is done online using electronic pads from their seats at the stadium, which leaves no room for cheating and collusion at all [worried face]. This stage will involve 20-30,000 players, reduced to 3,000 who play live on the stadium itself and compete for a piece of the $30m guarantee.

The event will last for five days sometime in 2012 “between August 15th and October 9th” aiming for early September. They are waiting on the England football team schedule to be published before a date can be confirmed.

If you missed the trailer the other day here it is again.
