There are great opportunities to win seats into the €540 Main Event over the coming weeks: Wednesdays 12 and 19th November will see €45 rebuy satellites running @ 7:30 and the Festival action proper will kick off on the 26th November with a €43 + €7 NL Multi Re-buy Satellite. Read more.

The winners of Tuesday nights Double Chance tournaments throughout November will also take home Main Event entry tickets.

Don’t forget you can book all our poker tournaments including the Festival events via the online booking system.

Difficult to say as we don't have final number yet, but play will continue until 27 players remain, then final 3 tables resume at 6pm on Sunday.

There are 24 players booked in at the moment (pre-qualified or have bought in online).

Why does the main event start so late on Sat/Sun? If you don't want an early start surely even 4pm would be better than playing all night.

+1 The 6pm start Sunday puts me off playing this. Assume a lot feel the same. Being in the last three tables of such a small field and missing a Sunday session doesn't seem worth it. A 2pm start would be a lot more appealing meaning if your still in by 6 or 7 its worth missing online.

Agreed with both above, please move day 2 start time back a few hours at least. Really not sure i want to play this with such a late Sunday start.

Love the 6pm start time - 8 would be even better with traffic etc etc.

Playing down to 27 on Day 1 in what will most likely be a small enough field seems questionable. At least if it played down to 18 the 6pm Sunday re-start would be a little more palatable imo.

Agree with what everybody else said about the start times. Presume they won't change though. Got to play until much less than 27 left on Sat though. What happens if it's not finished at closing time on Sunday?

Also what's with the ridiculous 10% early bird? Bit of a joke to have that in what is supposed to be a 'festival'. Lot of things turning me off wanting to play this.
