Lock Poker Exclusive: ISPT satellites for US players
The #1 online poker site in the United States, Lock Poker, has just announced that they will be hosting satellite tournaments for the upcoming International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) tournament that is scheduled to take place in London, England this May. Lock Poker is the only online poker room offering ISPT satellites to US players.
Qualifiers for seats to the inaugural ISPT event which is scheduled to be held in London, England this May are already running across the globe at both live venues and at several online poker rooms. Unfortunately, up until now, US players have been left out in the cold, unable to satellite their way into what is expected to be one of the biggest tournaments of the year. For US players, Lock Poker is the only online poker room offering official qualifying satellites to the ISPT tournament after signing an exclusive deal with the ISPT. The full satellite schedule for the ISPT qualifiers at Lock Poker will be posted soon at the LockPoker.eu website, which you can find at the following page: http://lockpoker.eu/promos/international-stadiums-poker-tour/
The initial ISPT tournament will take place at Wembley Stadium in London, England, and has an estimated prize-pool of €10,000,000. Despite the massive prize-pool, the tournament has very affordable buy-in of just €600, which means that satellite tournaments at Lock Poker will fit into almost every poker budget, from $60 Single Table events, to super-satellites with buy-ins of just a few dollars.
The ISPT is an ambitious undertaking to say the least, combining online poker with live poker, under the roof of Wembley Stadium. The initial phase of the tournament will see players take part in a massive online tournament on tablet computers from their Wembley Stadium seats, followed by the live portion of the tournament, which is slated to take place on the famous Wembley Stadium pitch.
ISPT organizers (which include Laurent Tapie and Prosper Masquelier) have even grander visions for the ISPT, envisioning a worldwide tour that will see the ISPT visit some of the most famous and largest stadiums in the world, combining the speed and massive fields of online tournaments, with the excitement and huge prize-pools of live events.
