It's a bit of a weird concept to think of the ghosts of my numerous England heroes, looking down at a bunch of poker degens sat at card tables, playing poker in pursuit of a mere €1,000,000 first prize.
When the ISPT (International Stadiums Poker Tour) was first announced, I scoffed at the concept. The whole ISPT train then seemed to be going off the rails, and it looked like it would probably either fail to happen, or go ahead but be a failure of epic proportions.
In recent times, the mighty DuskTillDawn took over the mantle of delivering the concept, and overnight it became an attractive prospect, such is the faith that the poker world has in DTD, Rob Yong, and Simon Trumper.
I have been fortunate to gain a €300 day one seat for my win in the recent APAT WCOAP, and I intend to play that day one at the DTD club. As the desire to make day two and play at Wembley is growing, I suspect that this won't be my only attempt at a day one - it's likely that I will take multiple punts (if needed) to get myself into what is now looking like being a part of poker history for all the right reasons.
DTD have made a massive financial commitment to this event, guaranteeing first place prize money at €1m. It's up to us in the local poker community to support DTD in making this a success, whether that be through stumping up buy ins, or simply through spreading the word!
