Amazing work from Tighty and his merry team of updaters. By far the best updates out there *. The whole event looked amazing, wp DTD, top work from the Notts boys to bring home a healthy chunk.

Over 5,000 people took part in the Day Ones and 761 played at Wembley Stadium in the most different Live tournament that any of them will have ever experienced.

Dusk Till Dawn added nearly €600,000 in overlay in what was at outset the most controversial tournamnet the global poker community has seen in years

With 12 weeks notice DTD stepped in, and the whirlwind since has been a logistical, if not financial, triumph

Now we are down to 6.
I hope the massive overlay doesn't dampen rob or dtds enthusiasm for poker cos boy does this country need them,no one else would have tried to make it work like they did.great reporting by the way.congrats mick

Xavier El Fassy finishes second

Xavier travelled from Calais to London without a seat and 500 euros to his name on Friday. Won the last chance live sat and turned it into over 200,000 euros.

He was a great character too, and a fantastic story for the event.

Nick Hicks finished 3rd.Nick was self critical of his final table performance but I genuinely felt he was short of cards and a bad seat meant he was short of spots

Great result Nick

Pete Linton finished 4th

I'll remember the six bet shove with 7-8off for a long time!

Well done Pete, 375,000 euros in the deal is a brilliant result

Final table report from PokerNews

After several days of poker at the magnificent Wembley Stadium in London, Jakub Michalak emerged as the winner of the inaugural €3,000 buy-in International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) Main Event.

Michalak is the top-ranked online player in Poland, according to PocketFives.com, and ranks in the top 50 in the world. He would be the first to admit he got lucky in two crucial pots against the aggressive Nottingham-based player Pete Linton, but he backed it up with intelligent and aggressive short-handed play to seal the victory.

Of course, with nearly €600,000 in overlay, there had been talk of a deal both Tuesday night and Wednesday morning before the final table began. The players spent the time before the final table hammering out the final details, which were as follows:
Player   Prize
Pete Linton   €375,000
Alban Juen   €290,000
Nick Hicks   €254,000
Gwendoline Janot   €243,000
Jakub Michalak   €236,000
Xavier El Fassy   €204,000

That left €200,000 for first place, making it a winner-take-all proposition and reducing the stress on all involved. Meanwhile, the chip counts and seating plan looked like this:
Position   Name   Chips
Seat 1   Pete Linton   11,070,000
Seat 2   Nick Hicks   6,230,000
Seat 3   Jakub Michalak   4,825,000
Seat 4   Alban Juen   7,615,000
Seat 5   Gwendoline Janot   5,880,000
Seat 6   Xavier El Fassy   4,555,000

The tournament final table was moved from the Bobby Moore Suite into a snug Executive Box Suite overlooking the Wembley pitch from a great height. The giant inflatable igloo-like domes that had housed 761 players a few days earlier had been removed, and the field was being worked on for the upcoming Bruce Springsteen concert.

Of course, there was no doubt who "The Boss" was going into the final table as Pete Linton was the only player with eight figures in chips, holding just over a quarter of the chips in play. But he suffered a big loss to Michalak early on when they went to war with kings and ace-queen, respectively. Linton remained unperturbed as he and Michalak continued to spar with one another in several pots as they tried to bluff and rebluff each other.

Gwendoline Janot was the first player eliminated. She was crippled after losing with pocket sevens to Xavier El Fassy's kings, and was knocked out on the very next hand by Michalak. Frenchman Alban Juen the next out. He'd started the day second in chips but after getting in a raising war against Linton, he was eliminated after losing the flip.
The ISPT Main Event final tableThe ISPT Main Event final table

After the earlier battles, it was inevitable that Michalak and Linton would get into another big pot, and more than half the chips in play went in the middle as Linton's ace-queen battled Michalak's king-jack.

The players took a dinner break, but after only 30 minutes, Nick Hicks, who'd been mostly card dead for the final table and playing snug, was caught when Michalak flopped trips against Hicks' top pair.

Michalak went into the heads-up with nearly an 8-to-1 chip lead over recreational player Xavier El Fassy, and it didn't take long for the chips to end up in the middle. El Fassy picked up kings against Michalak's ace-seven but an ace on the flop was followed by another on the river.

Echoing the most famous commentary at Wembley Stadium, “They think it's all over, it is now.” Michalak received €236,000 for his historic win at the legendary stadium.

There is no doubt that the ISPT has been considered controversial with many observers asking many questions about it. Could such an event ever truly be considered feasible? Why would Dusk Til Dawn, very respected in its own right, would partner up with such a tour? Although the numbers perhaps were not as high as the ISPT and DTD would've hoped, logistically the tournament was a success and there were very few complaints about anything. It will be interesting to see where both parties go after this event and what the future, if any, is for the ISPT

An ISPT View: Is €589,060 an Expensive Overlay or Global Marketing on the Cheap?
