With the ISPT fading into the distance and Jakub Michalak off spending his €436,000 winnings somewhere, Rob Yong has taken some time to write about the iconic event.
The Dusk Till Dawn owner might have been liable for the €600,000 overlay but that hasn’t tainted his opinion of the event, indeed, on the whole his recent blog post shows a man happy with its outcome. One of the most pleasing things for Rob and the team behind the ISPT was the demographics of the event. Listing the stats for the tournament, Rob explained that out of the 708 unique runners, 428 were from the UK and the rest came from Europe and the rest of the world. While the overall number of runners may have fallen short of expectations, the breadth of the event’s appeal was certainly impressive with players coming from as far afield as Canada to help fulfil the ISPT’s promise an international event. Within the blog post Rob also explains that Dusk Till Dawn went over their original budget and spent “over €300,000 on promotions and overlays”. However, overall, Rob was pleased with the reaction to the tournament and said that “players were full of praise for the set-up”. Moreover, while Dusk Till Dawn aren’t scheduled to be involved in any more ISPT events, Rob believes the organisers are considering hosting an event in the “O2 Arena in Prague” as well as “one of Brazil's stadiums” in the lead up to the World Cup.
