Welcome one and all!
The £550 MPN Poker Tour has arrived at the Grosvenor Casino in Manchester and we should have some dynamic poker action for you to enjoy over the coming days. Having visited some of the prime locations in Europe, the tour has flown into one of the UK’s most famous cities.
Home to two of the world’s largest football clubs, a haven of music with such luminaries as The Stone Roses and Oasis having evolved from Manchester’s musical milieu and the hometown of UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping, Manchester has a multitude of eclectic claims to fame.
So this is a prestigious tournament to win. For now, let’s take a look at some of the salient details from the event:
- £150k Guaranteed – This juicy sweetener should ensure there will be a healthy swarm of players streaming through the Grosvenor Casino doors bidding to taste some of the honey.
- 25,000 in chips. With the one hour levels and deep stacks, this should ensure there is plenty of room to pull off some fancy plays down the streets if you’re feeling imaginative. It also may help you survive the inevitable coolers that will crop up.
- There are two starting days, and unlimited re-entries if your first or subsequent bullets fail to find their mark. You can rebuy right up to the start of Day 2.
- You can view more information about the event on the MPNPT website by clicking here.
The stage is set for what we hope and fervently believe will be a fun and exciting four days of poker.
There are numerous other events occurring simultaneously – more news of this to follow. The blog team will be here to bring you visual and textual updates from the main event from start to finish as well as news of the winners of the various side events.
For now though, we await the start of the day. Good luck one and all!
