Just been looking at this, will somebody understand it for me please?

Is it the one comp with day ones and twos scattered around the country?

Where/when is the final?

Here's the GUKPT page about it Tom, though I'm not sure it helps much. Presumably there is a full explanation of it somewhere, but I've not been able to find it yet.

I found this on PokerNews which sheds a little more light on it;


Seasonal Specials
Other popular festivals return for 2019 and should prove to be a major hit. The Easter Beast, Summer Sizzler and Christmas Cracker all return. They each cover seven regions, each featuring a £115 buy-in tournament with £20,000 guaranteed prize pools.

This format sees players play Day 1 across seven regions before combining for Day 2 to play the tournament out for the title.

But there seems to be day twos in several locations.

Apologies - I seem to have inserted my comment in front of the Day 2 details.

Lots of regional events with multiple Day 1 venues - each regional has a set Day 2 venue on Bank Holiday Monday (unless you are in Yorkshire or Scotland, where Day 2 is @ Leeds on Sunday).

Each Day 2 is a final, Tom. It's a series of regional tournaments, but they don't all end up in one final. The regional day 2's are, in, effect, all "finals".

So all the finals, (Cept Scotland) are on the same day, so the punters can't play more than one event and the staff can't be shared around?

Brilliant!

It’s not a massive event though Tom.
Basically it’s a local tournament on Day 1 with a regional Day 2.

Before you ask,  no, making Day 2 doesn’t mean you are in the money.

It is a decent structure though.

I agree. That's why it would be nice to be able to play several.

No biggie though, it's all good.
