WPT500 UK At Dusk Till Dawn
The WPT500 will featured a guaranteed prize pool of £500,000 and a buy-in of £560. The format will see 5 Day1s taking place with Day1E featuring a turbo structured event. The eventual winner will receive the biggest chunk of the guaranteed prize pool on May 28.
The last time the WPT500 took place at the Dusk Till Dawn poker club was back in Nov 2014 when the buy-in was fixed at £500. The event saw a strong response from UK poker players and a total of 2,133 players registered for the event. Eleanor Gudger went on to win the 2014 event and walked away with £140,000 in prize money.
The last three editions of the WPT500 (May 2020, March 2021 and August 2021) took place online due to COVID-19 and was run on partypoker Online.
Dusk Till Dawn Running 5 Satellite Events
Dusk Till Dawn is one of the most popular poker rooms in all of Europe and was delighted to get the chance to host the WPT500 UK. Simon Trumper who is the live poker director at Dusk Till Dawn said the club was happy to welcome the WPT back after a 7 year break.
Trumper said they were expecting a big turnout for the WPT500 UK as the event will take place during a UK bank holiday which will allow more poker players to find the time to attend the event.
There will be many poker players who will find it difficult to afford the buy-in and that’s why Dusk Till Dawn is running 5 satellite events for the WPT500 UK. The buy-in for these satellite events is fixed at £65 and as many as 60 seats for the £560 buy-in event will be given away. The dates for these satellite events can be found at the Dusk Till Dawn website.
