Day 1 of the first-ever International Stadiums Poker Tour is taking place online through May 19, and your next chance to play in the historic event will be this Sunday, May 5 with Day 1d on Poker770.com at 7 pm GMT. If you're one of the fortunate players who advance to Day 2, you'll earn a seat to the live event on the lawn of the legendary Wembley Stadium in London!
The €300 buy-in on Day 1d will see 10% of the field advance to the live portion of the tournament in London, where action will take place on the lawn from Days 2 through 6. Players on Day 1d will begin with 5,000 in chips with blinds starting at 10/20 with levels lasting 15 minutes.
Many satellites for Day 1d are still available, so get in on the action at ISPT partners like Poker770.com, Poker770.es, Partouche.fr, and MyPok.fr. Up to 30,000 players will be able to compete in the €300 buy-in Day 1 across several online poker rooms leading up to Day 2 at Wembley.
If you're unable to participate or advance on Day 1d, there will still be two chances with Day 1e on May 12 and Day 1f on May 19.
The online format for the ISPT allows for participants to play as many Day 1s as they desire. If the player advances through more than one Day 1 online, only the biggest chip stack from that player will be carried forward to Day 2. The lower chip stacks will be taken out of play and credit will be refunded to players.
The chip leader after the first three Day 1 starting flights is Nicolas "Pascal6874" Cardyn with 136,593 in chips.
Players will also have the option of buying in directly for €3,000. Those players will begin Day 2 on June 1 with 50,000 chips, with blinds starting at 100/200 and levels lasting 60 minutes. Among the players expected to participate at Wembley include ISPT ambassadors Patrik Antonius, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, Sam Trickett, Liz Lieu, and David Benyamine.
Mizrachi has already drawn up his flight plan to Wembley Stadium for the event. Check it out in the teaser video below:
