Multi Prize Pool Tournaments Debut in January

One tournament, three prize pools. On 10 January, the first ever Multi Prize Pool poker tournament will be held at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham.
One of the most successful British tournament players, EPT and WPT champion Roberto Romanello developed an entirely new tourney concept: the Multi Prize Pool (MPP) tournaments. All players take part in the same event with the same amount of chips but there is a difference in the amount certain players can win in this new scenario.

As is apparent from the designation, MPP tournaments offer multiple prize pools, three for example. In this case, players can opt for three different buy-in levels: £25, £50 or £100. Someone choosing the smallest buy-in can play for Prizepool 1, those paying the middle sum play for Prizepool 2 and the ones paying the most are in for Prizepool 1, 2 as well as 3. This means that if someone paying £100 wins the game, they take the first prize of all three prize pools but it is also possible for someone to take the first prize of Prizepool 3 with a 27th overall finish, if 26 small- or mid-buy-in players finish before them.

The prize pools are calculated as follows: in our example, all £25 buy-ins go to Prizepool 1. £25 of every £50 buy-ins go to Prizepool 1 and £25 go to Prizepool 2. £25 of every £100 also go to Prizepool 1, another £25 go to Prizepool 2 and £50 go to Prizepool 3.

The MPP concept is expected to bring about a refreshment of poker tournaments. The small buy-in option enables players with smaller bankrolls to participate in big events, even against pros only seen on TV before. This should also increase participant numbers and lighten up the fields. In addition, play can become more action packed and interesting, in no small part due to the three bubble phases.

MPP tournaments can also offer greater guaranteed prize pools. "Where we see this leading is huge guarantees that will benefit all bankrolls, e.g. we would normally guarantee a £500 Deep Stack at £100,000, whereas with an MPP event, we could have £250/£500/£1,000 buy-ins and a minimum £250,000 guaranteed," Dusk Till Dawn commented.

The first ever MPP tournament will be organised on 10 January at Dusk Till Dawn with £25+£6 (Prizepool 1), £50+£8 (Prizepool 2) and £100+£10 (Prizepool 3) buy-ins. The guaranteed prize pool will be £5,000.
