The big day is here

Two years from conception, and for DTD 12 weeks of a huge logistical project and associatied promotion, and we are finally at Wembley

"Just a few months ago the smart-money would have been on the International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) to be a dismal failure, if not cancelled entirely. But a funny thing happened in the past couple of months, beginning with the addition of the Dusk Till Dawn Poker Club who dramatically cleaned-up the ISPT marketing campaign beginning with a €1,000,000 guarantee for the winner of the tournament. With the new guarantee, and the excellent reputation of Dusk Till Dawn, ISPT Day 1’s (which took place across several online poker sites) suddenly started receiving interest and more importantly players."

With a final day one tonight, the live satellite at 5pm and direct buy ins still to come, there are according to Simon Trumper about 520 players in to date

Of course the likelihood is of a big overlay, but when you see the pictures I am about to put up you'll realise that what has been achived logistically in 12 weeks, from a standing start, is quite amazing

Whatever the final number of runners, and whatever the overlay, DTD has something to be proud of in my opinion

So the Media Centre is half way up this enormous stadium

The view as you exit the door is as follows

There are seven "rooms" in a pop up poker village. It's igloo vision.

In the middle of shot on the pitch you can see Simon Trumper. Checking every last detail.

Each of the rooms are named after an iconic footballer. That was my idea by the way.
