The United Kingdom may be in the grip of a heatwave, but it is not only the weather that is scorching hot because the action at the partypoker tables is also heating up thanks to the online legs of the $250,000 guaranteed Grand Prix Poker Tour Brighton kicking off.
Taking place at the Amex Stadium between July 23-24, 2016, the GPPT Brighton leg should be one of the bigger GPPT stops thanks in part to its fantastic location. With Brighton only being an hour south of London by train, players will flock to the $109 buy-in Main Event (with its whopping $250,000 guaranteed prize pool), which you can qualify for online at partypoker from as little as $0.01. Brighton is an awesome place for a poker tournament thanks to its vibrant nightlife, and the fact if you bust from the tournament you can dip your toes in the sea and wash away your tilt!
As you can see from the image below, there are several Day 1s taking place online at partypoker in the run up to the live event. Playing a Day 1 online costs $109, unless you manage to win yourself a $109 ticket for less, and sees you sit down with 20,000 chips, and play to blinds that increase every 12 minutes.
Each online leg lasts for 16 levels, with chip counts taken at the end of the 16th level. If you have chips in front of you at this point, you have made it through to Day 2 at Brighton and Hove Albion’s Amex Stadium on June 24 where you will find yourself in the money places.
The live Day 1s take place at the Rendezvous Casino on July 21-22, with additional live Day 1s at the Amex Arena during July 23. Players in the live arena receive the same 20,000 chips, will play 16 levels, but the length of these levels are 30-minutes to reflect the slower speeds of the live poker world.
In addition to the $250,000 guaranteed Main Event, there are a brace of side events to get stuck into. The first is a $25,000 guaranteed tournament with 30-minute blinds, with the other being a $5,000 guaranteed tournament with 20-minute blinds. Both cost $109 to enter and take place on July 24 while the Main Event plays down to a champion.
Head to the partypoker lobby right now to find satellites into our live events from as little as $0.01 and see if you can win your way to the GPPT Brighton leg. DTD and partypoker will be there, will you be?
