Grand Prix UK Online-Live Hybrid Main Event is Heating Up

The Grand Prix UK Online-Live Hybrid Series features five tournaments between February 26 and March 14 with $625,000 in combined guaranteed prize pools.

The inaugural Grand Prix UK Online-Live Hybrid Main Event is in full swing and time is running out if you want to become the first-ever champion of this exciting £150,000 guaranteed tournament.

Five Online Day 1s have been and gone with 204 partypoker players exchanging £150 for the chance to become the tournament’s champion. Only 30 of those starters have punched their Day 2 tickets at the first attempt; they now head to Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham to complete the Main Event in a live setting.

Vanessa Langiano has done her chances of glory no harm at all by turning her 100,000 starting stack into a massive stack of 2,119,473 chips. Only Jack Follows, with 2,070,470, has a stack containing two million or more betting tokens.

Three other partypoker players multiplied their Day 1 starting stacks by ten and will sit down at DTD armed with a seven-figure stack. Chris Nicholas (1,307,774), Talah Usmani (1,271,847), and Kamal Kasim (1,193,169) are three players to look out for when the live Day 2 shuffles up and deals at 15:00 GMT on March 13.
