On Tuesday, the International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) announced the singing of David Benyamine as an ambassador. Benyamine will now join forces with Michael Mizrachi, Liz Lieu, Patrik Antonius and Sam Trickett to promote what's expected to become the world's biggest poker tournament.

Besides being a very successful cash game player, David Benyamine has a WPT title and a WSOP bracelet under his belt. In total, his live tournament career earnings exceed more than 6 million dollars. The only Frenchman to have won more than him is Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier.

About ISPT
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. The players will play online against each other at first, then the "laptops" will be put aside when 3000 players remain and live action begins. 1000 seats are reserved for players that want to buy-in directly (€6000) to the live part of the event.

It has all that it takes to become the biggest poker tourney. Promotion is all they need, to make themselves be heard and known among players. €600 buy-in is peanuts compared with WSOP, and it is in Europe, cheap travelling is on their side.

Will be interesting to see if this will really take place.
As far as I know they already lowered the guarantueed price poll from Euro 30 million to 20 million.
Guess I read this somewhere else.
So lets wait and see if it will take place.

I think the fact that they have had to sign yet another player means that they are struggling for exposure about the tournament.

600 euro like Fakiry said is a mega cheap buyin for the prize pool on offer, so I don't get the lack of takers on this.

It's even in a big city that's accessible to Europe and Eastern States.
