WPTN Newcastle Starts Today

WPTN Newcastle Starts Today

Thursday, 30 April 2015

The World Poker Tour sets up came in the north east of England over the next few days as the £100,000 WPT National Newcastle event hits Aspers Casino.

The first of three opening flights in the £200 buy-in event starts at 8pm tonight with two more day ones following at 2pm and 8pm on Friday. WPTN Newcastle will be played using the accumulator format meaning that you can play on one, two or all three flights and build up a big stack by combining your close of play totals from all three day ones. Stacks start at 20,000 chips with the blinds going up every 30-minutes.

There's a busy lineup of side events scheduled too, including a super satellite at 2pm today. Check out the full list of tournaments below:

Darren Mapley won last year's WPT National Newcastle, turning his £200 buy-in into an impressive score of £17,500.
