HeadHunter Poker’s hotly-anticipated debut event is just over a fortnight away but there's still time to bag a seat via a series of online qualifiers that are running now.
The unique tournament, which is to be held in Aspers Super Casino London on 15th January, is the invention of pros Dale ‘DezRaiseNFold’ Williams and Daniel ‘rivered9999’ Gray. It will have a £5k buy-in, of which £1k will be retained as a ‘scalp’ – so you earn a tidy thousand for every player you knock out. This is an interesting innovation in tournament poker, promising a reduction in variance while still encouraging fast and ruthless action.For those who have a bankroll rather too modest for such a premium buy-in, there are a whole host of multi-level satellite qualifiers now up and running on William Hill. These start at just a few pounds, and provide the chance to win a fully paid seat into a tournament which pledges an enormous prize pool of over £1 million.To find the qualifiers, simply open William Hill Poker, select ‘Tournaments’, and type ‘Headhunter’ into the search bar, or for more information go to www.headhunterpoker.co.uk.
