Nottingham´s Dusk till Dawn Poker Club is hosting the Sky/DTD UK 6-Max Poker Championships from Thursday – the feature being the £500,000 guaranteed Main Event
Following the success of Sky Poker´s UK Poker Championship at Dusk till Dawn in February, the two major forces of poker in the UK are again combining to host a 6-Max Championship Series, starting from this coming Thursday – August 8th.
More than £1 million in prizes is guaranteed over the eleven days of competition, which starts with a 6-Max Mini Event (buy-in £250.00) that has a guaranteed prize pool of £150,000 including 50 seats to the £1,000 buy-in Main Event.
The UKPC 6-Max Main Event
The £500,000 guaranteed Main Event is a well-structured tournament that sees players starting with 50,000 chips and levels lasting 60 minutes. Antes are in play from Level 1, and players who bust out early are allowed to make one re-entry on each of the three opening flights.
Players who survive either of the two opening flights with relatively small chip stacks can buy-in again on Days 1B and 1C, but will have to forfeit their chip stack in order to do so.
The UKPC 6-Max Main Event it is certain to be a well supported tournament as hundreds of players have already qualified online at Sky Poker for Day 1C. Players considering buying-in directly are already being asked to register for one of the earlier flights to avoid disappointment!

Win a Vegas Package and a Car at DTD
Six months ago, twenty-year-old Alex Spencer caused a sensation by winning the UKPC Main Event for £125,000 and a $15,000 package to the WSOP in Las Vegas for being the overall UKPC leaderboard winner – which he was unable to use because of his age!
In the 6-Max Series, Dusk till Dawn are again putting up a Vegas package as a prize (with the option to convert the prize into sterling and use it for DTD tournament buy-ins), and also offering a brand new Mini for any player who makes the six-handed final table of both the 6-Max Mini Event #1 and 6-Max Main Event #4.
The full schedule for the feature events and side events being played during the SKY/DTD UKPC 6-Max Championships, further details of the UKPC 6-Max leaderboard competition and the terms and conditions of the Mini Challenge can be found on the Dusk till Dawn website.
