In about a week London will explode with the eagerly awaited International Stadiums Poker Tour; more than 550 players are already confirmed for what is guaranteed to be the world's most unique poker tournament to date.
The ISPT Main Event will be hosted by Wembley Stadium from May 31st through June 5th but it began on the virtual felt in February with Day 1 taking place across partnering sites.
Ten percent of the €300 buy-in Day 1 fields advanced to the live portion of the tournament in London. The action then continues on the Wembley lawn from Days 2 through 6. Players taking a seat at Wembley on Day 2a will take the number of chips they finished Day 1 online with into action.
The rest of the field will be comprised of those who buy in directly for €3,000. And those players start Day 2 with 50,000 chips, blinds begin at 100/200, and levels last 60 minutes. This is a reentry event and players can get back in the mix on Day 2b (June 1st) if Day 1a takes a turn for the worst.
