About the Event

  • The seat draw will take place on the evening prior to Day 1 of the tournament.
  • All chips will be put in play at the start and players will be required to take their seats at the very beginning of the tournament.
  • All Invitation Holders will be separated from the Guests in the seat draw and remain separated until the end of Level 6.
  • At the completion of Level 6 a new seat draw will take place balancing as equally as possible Invitation Holders and Guests at the tables. Tournament staff will attempt to maintain this balance when balancing/breaking tables until completion of Day 1.
  • At the end of Day 1 a new random seat draw will take place combining the entire field and disregarding any previous criteria. Seat allocation will be at random until the end of the tournament.
  • Players will not be allowed to cover any part of their body from the neck up. This includes, but is not limited to, wearing scarves, funnel neck sweatshirts, turtle neck jumpers, sunglasses, hats/caps. The only exception will be made for sunglasses to be used at the TV tables due to lighting and hats that do not cover/hide any part of the face at any time. Hoodies are not recommended to follow the rules above. A formal suit will be required to be worn at the Final Table (9 players remaining).

About the Registrations

A committee will gather and decide if a player falls into the category of Recreational Player/Businessman ( INVITATIONS ) or Guest Player/ Professional Poker Player ( GUESTS )

  • Only Invitation Holders will be allowed to deposit £50,000 and secure their seat. After the committee accepts the registration of an Invitation Holder, he/she can then appoint one Guest that will be able to deposit a further £50,000 to secure his/her seat.
  • After depositing the initial £50,000 a player (Invitation Holder or Guest) must complete his/her registration payment to reach the total buy-in amount of £1,050,000 prior to the start of the Festival.
  • A potential Guest can express his/her interest in playing the tournament and his/her name will be added to a waiting list that will be shared with the Businessmen who have already registered.
  • After a player’s seat is confirmed, the player must give full consent for the committee to share his/her name on the list of confirmed attendees for the event.
  • The £50,000 deposit is non-refundable and will be donated to Charity in case of a no-show.
