The Sky Poker 6-Max UK Poker Championships is the latest creation to be spawned from the relationship between Sky Poker and the Dusk till Dawn (DTD) card room.
Do you like your short-handed poker?
If you do then you had better wipe out the 7th Aug through to 17th Aug as Sky Poker and DTD link up once again to create another great festival of poker.
The Sky Poker 6-Max UK Poker Championships is an 11-day feast of fun that guarantees £1m in prize money over six 6-max events, including a £1,100 Main Event (guaranteeing £500,000) and a £3,000 High Roller (guaranteeing £150,000).
This second helping from the Sky Poker/DTD connections comes after the very successful Sky Poker UK Poker Championships held back in February, which saw the 20-year-old Alex Spencer taking the first prize of £125,000, after defeating a field of 621-players.
That week of poker also saw a £500+50 6-max event see 402-players turn up for action, showing the popularity of the short-handed genre in Nottingham.
The festival will open up with the ‘6-Max Mini’ event that carries a guarantee of £150,000, including 50 seats to the £1,000 buy-in Main Event. There will also be a £500 Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) event with a £50k guarantee, a £500 Turbo with a £150,000 guarantee and a £500 Hyper-Turbo with a £50k guarantee.
Richard Milner, Head of Sky Poker, was delighted with the announcement: “After the success of the inaugural Sky Poker UK Poker Championships earlier this year, we are delighted to announce this additional 6-Max festival. With the excellent team and facilities that DTD offer, we’re sure it will be a great event and we know that 6-Max is very popular with Sky Poker customers. The previous event was full of many well-known and high profile favorites from the UK poker scene and we expect the same this time.”
As usual the live and online card rooms will be jammed to the rafters with satellite qualification for as low as a bag of peanuts.
