Written By: Maya Michaels | April 18, 2017 | Posted In Poker News

The partypokerLIVE MILLION festivals which is held at the Dusk Till Dawn within Nottingham is unlike any poker festival that you may have seen, and not just for the simple fact that the guaranteed prize pool is £6m and £1m first-place payout for its flagship event, as well as £5,300 Main Event.  The Dusk Till Dawn is considered to be the home to many poker players within the United Kingdom as well as being one of the largest card rooms with Europe.  The Dusk Till Dawn along with the online poker operator partypoker has created a very unique hybrid between live poker playing and online poker playing.

Players that have already qualified for entering the Main Event through a £500+50 Online Phase within the partypoker platform, as well as one of the live partners which does include Dusk Till Dawn, but it also includes venues which span across Europe within Vienna, San Remo, and St. Vincent.  All of the qualifiers carried over the chips that they accumulated into the £5,300 Live Day 1.  Here players were able to buy in directly to receive 1,000,000.00 chips with the initial bid level set at 2,500.00 to 5,000.00 and the ante running at 500.00.

After the surplus of pre-event action that took place yesterday, a total of 197 poker players were entered into the mix live.  After 10 levels of poker playing were finished a total of 97 poker players remained.  Neal Murphy is in the lead with an amazing 6,790,000.00 in chips.
