The Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham has introduced a new live tournament format, MultiPrizePool Poker (MPP).
The format has three buy-in levels, £25+6, £50+8 and £100+10, and three prize pools.
The first prize pool is made up of the first level buy-in, the second of the second level and the third of the third level buy-in.
However, the prize distribution is independent for each prize pool.
The player who finishes first in the £100 buy-in prize pool wins first place in that pool, the same is true of the £50 buy-in level.
As all players are entered into the level 1 pool the tournament winner will also win the £25 prize pool.
The first MPP event attracted 177 entries. There were nine prizes paid out in the highest pool, 14 payouts in the middle and 24 at the lowest level pool.
A man called Brian Sheppard bought into the top level and went on to win the tournament, he took 1st place money for all three levels, £1,190 + £824 + £1,024, and went home over £3,000 richer.
