Posted on Thursday, July 26, 2012 by "T".
Many expect the International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) to become the world's largest live tournament ever. The tournament will take place at Wembley Stadium in London between May 31 and June 6th, 2013. The buy-in is €600 (1 rebuy or add-on possible) and 30,000 players (2,631 players have registered so far) are expected to take part and fight for a chunk of the €20,000,000 prize pool.

That's pretty dam awesome.

Love the idea that they battle it out on the laptop then go to the tournament - and one hell of a prizepool.

Mizrachi is a good person to be an ambassador too.

The direct buy-in is less than na entrance to WSOP ($10,000 equals €8,153.40) so i believe those 1,000 seats can be all easily ocupied. We aren’t talking about na event that will take part in the USA, but still, it may be a good chance for european players to do a cheap travel to UK and investo n this (travel to Las Vegas to be in the WSOP would always be more expensive). It wil be nice to see pics from the stadium with the 3,000 players.

So the online tournament is like a satellite for the live tournament, when players can buy-in directly for the live tournament...
Probably the prizes will also be distributed like there was 3000 players at the beginning.

Haha, nice prizepool!

Pretty nice idea to make it online AND live for the important part. No way they could make 30 000 players play live at the same place, would take so much space and dealers lol!

I'm looking forward to seeing this tournament ^^

great prize pool, great buyin (affordable), great venue- even a great ambassador, what else could you ask? maybe a free entry Big Smile really believed that when the full tilt buyout didn't materialize for tapie he will forget this idea, this tourney was supposed to be connected with the grand relaunch of new full tilt...

I personally really like the idea and it would definately be interesting to see how it will go on Smile

Also the prize pool is really good so i assume we'll see some really nice prizes for the winners.
