The International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) team has been strengthened even more as the British poker pro Sam Trickett has joined as ambassador. Trickett, who is the U.K.’s all-time money leader with more than $15.4 million in live tournament winnings, will now work together with Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi to promote what’s expected to become the world’s largest tournament in the history of live poker.
The tournament is scheduled for May 31, 2013, at the Wembley Stadium in London, England. The buy-in is Â€600 (1 rebuy or add-on possible) and 30,000 players are expected to take part and fight for a chunk of the Â€20,000,000 prize pool. The players will play online against each other at first, then the “laptops” will be put aside when 3000 players remain and live action begins. 1000 seats are reserved for players that want to buy-in directly (Â€6000) to the live part of the event.
