Nottingham poker club Dusk Till Dawn has spent 2014 hosting a selection of major poker festivals with mega guarantees, a tradition that will be continued when they welcome the World Poker Tour (WPT) in November.

The partypoker WPT UK Festival will be a huge event set to happen between the 6th and 23rd of November. This means there will be a full 18 days of poker to be enjoyed, including the hotly anticipated WPT500, which despite having a buy-in of just £500 carries a monster guarantee of £1,000,000. There are set to be seven starting days, from 9th - 15th November, with one re-entry per day (allowing players a maximum of 14 entries should they choose to play every day of the week). Satellites to the WPT500 are running every day at 17:40 ET with a buy-in of $50.

A million-pound guarantee also applies to the £3,000 Main Event, but organisers are optimistic that this will be topped: ''I would like to see us exceed 500 runners over the 2 Day 1s, creating a prizepool of over £1.5M,'' said Dusk Till Dawn owner Rob Yong.

There are a variety of events to suit all pockets – players on a budget might want to opt for the £125 WPT Warm-Up, while those with bigger bankrolls will likely gravitate towards the £6,000 High Roller. Added to that is a wide range of mid-level buy-in side events, including 6-Max, 8-Max, and Deepstack tournaments with buy-ins ranging from £500 up to £2,000.

Location-wise, Dusk Till Dawn poker club and casino in Nottingham is an established UK poker hotspot and tournament destination. It can also comfortably seat up to 450 players at any one time, meaning that even away from the events there's sure to be lively action at the cash tables.
