Grand Prix Poker Tour Coming to Stamford Bridge

28 Nov 2015
Buy in for £70 for your chance at a £250,000 guaranteed prize pool

Chelsea Football Club tends to divide opinions but whether you love or hate them, you can’t miss taking part in the Grand Prix Poker Tour leg taking place at Stamford Bridge on 28-29 Nov.


The Grand Prix Poker Tour is a collaboration between partypoker and Dusk Till Dawn – a series of affordable buy-in tournaments with huge guarantees taking place at iconic football grounds around the country.

Partypoker has made a commitment to grassroots poker community with this amazing tour. The tour aims to revitalise the UK’s recreational poker scene. Each leg features an affordable buy-in of £60+£10 yet has a large guaranteed prize pool to play for, £250,000 for each of the first three legs. First place can expect a minimum payout of £35,000.

Players from around the country have the chance to play poker at the homes of Chelsea FC, Manchester United, Leeds United, Newcastle United and more where they can turn a relatively small buy in into a substantial payday.

Rob Young, the owner of DTD says:

“This Grand Prix Poker Tour is about re-vitalising grass roots poker in the UK. The new format reflects this, with each Day 1 being a freezeout and players who choose to play multiple Day 1’s automatically forfeiting their previous Day 2 stack. This levels the playing field but means we will have to work much harder to meet the huge guarantees.”

“Player do have the opportunity to play multiple starting flights, but doing so forfeits any stack they may have progressed to Day 2 with, a vast improvement on the “best stack forwards” format that many live tournaments employ.”
