Welcome to Day 3 of The Festival Series Nottingham at Dusk Till Dawn. Today will be another thrilling day as not only will there be a champion crowned in the PokerListings Championship but also today is the day that the £200,000 guaranteed The Festival Series Nottingham £450 Main Event kicks off with the first of its four opening flights.

The first three opening flights of the Main Event feature 30-minute blind levels while the final turbo flight boasts a faster 15-minute structure. Players begin with a massive stack of 200,000 in chips and can re-enter up to once per opening flight or late register for the first eight blind levels.

Each of the opening flights will play down to 15% of the field. At this point, all players will be in the money before battling it out for two more days on Feb. 18-19 until a winner is crowned.

Other events today include the £120 Knockout at 5 p.m., the £230 Round of Each (NL/PLO) at 8 p.m. and the £120 Blackjack tournament at 9 p.m.

Also, today will be two more live-streamed Cash Game Challenges and a £56 Main Event satellite at 7 p.m.

Our coverage will begin at 12 p.m. when cards are in the air for the Main Event. However, today we will continue to focus on the entire atmosphere instead of focusing solely on one event. Stay tuned to our coverage.
