Just noticed you are from Bristol and not Bordeaux Pascal. Did you see Roberto Romenllo and Rana were at the press conference. James Dempsey has confirmed which also adds weight to this going ahead. There were loads of lads from Bristol in Dtd like Stuart Kinghorn who all said they are gonna get behind the event. I reckon this could take off.

not saying it won't take off, just that i don't think it should. if this is a success after everything they've done it just proves how much you can get away with in business

All the poker players brought in as faces so far will wear absolutely any patch if you chuck them a few bob.

I have no doubt that DTD's customer base will lap this up wholesale - they have huge brand loyalty and many of them will feel helping DTD make the guarantee will be like helping a mate out.

Also I wasn't aware Stu was particularly influential in Bristol

Indeed. If they do get there it'll be down to DTD and some luck on ISPT's part. I will always have contempt for Partouche and ISPT due to this and so many other reasons.

Are you saying the ISPT are a bunch of bankers?

I wouldn't expect it to do anything that ISPT touted for months, but a 1 million dollar guarantee to first seems to indicate that the tournament will be a decent size and perhaps may even be a good value to players (overlay for instance, security that you'll get paid and not cancelled last second).
Your post contradicts itself: "they saw an opportunity"... "It might have overlay"

So they saw an opportunity to lose money? There is no way this is a smart business choice, it's ill thought out.

You can be certain that this will come out of DTD's marketing budget.

He was referring to my column, which suggested even if DTD pay a huge overlay it might be worth it for the marketing benefits.

why?

i think all costs will be covered by ISPT. otherwise what are they offering? a failing tournament that is going to cost them loads of money? by teaming with DTD, they'll have to offer DTD something. give DTD a freeroll and ISPT save the money on paying out for costs etc plus embarrassment for no runners

I guess it could be coming out of ISPT's budget, we'll see I suppose. DTD often write off overlays as marketing expenditure though.

They announced the partnership at the press conference at Wembley - Barny and Joe were both in attendance.

That guy sounds like a nice guy, but it's pretty ridiculous when he is talking about the guarantee. It was very clearly guaranteed before, the ads I saw were pretty cut and dry.

I've been a critic of this idea until DTD stepped in, now I have no choice than to see that the both sides of the coin are winning for the players: either it will be a huge success for all, or just for the players because of a huge overlay. Anyway, I bet anyone that this tournament will be taking place as stated by Simon.

Wouldn't be the first time that guarantees disappear with Partouche involved.

What he meant, but was being polite, is now it is being guaranteed by someone who understands the definition of the word.
