Here is some information regarding Jon “Skalie” Kalmar’s very own Sunday Tournament, in the words of none other than Skalie himself!

Jon Kalmar: Join me every week for skalie’s Sunday Deepstack.

At last! I have the chance to host my own tournament on Ladbrokes Poker. When asked what I wanted this to be – the answer was simple: A deepstack tournament with plenty of time to play it. Join me every week for skalie’s Sunday Deepstack.

The tournament is a NLHE freezeout with a $100+9 buy in and has a super structure that I hope everyone will enjoy playing. The tournament will start at 1600hrs (GMT) with regular satellites available during the week.

The news doesn’t stop there as Ladbrokes Poker is adding some fantastic offline poker prizes giving you the chance to take your game into the “live” arena. You can join me on the GUKPT circuit later in the year pitting your wits against some of the great names in poker. There will be a league system where if you finish 1st (overall) you will win buy-ins to three GUKPT events of your choice. See below for a breakdown of the added prizes awarded for skalie’s Sunday Deepstack.

For the first twelve weeks, points will be awarded for the top 20 finishers (in addition to the cash payout). The points will go towards the league that will be updated every Monday.

What I like most about this tournament is that it’s on a Sunday – my favourite day. Watching sport on the tv and playing good poker – what more can you want? I have put together a structure that follows the majority of all major “live” poker tournaments. The idea is to not only provide a great game that provides value but also a structure and starting stack that prepares you for playing in some of the biggest tournaments on the poker circuit.

I hope you all enjoy this new tournament and if you have any questions or ideas, you can contact me at where I will do my best to answer.


The winners will be asked to nominate the GUKPT leg(s) of their choice. Prizes are for seats only and players are required to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements. Note – there are no cash alternatives in this promotion. In the event that a player cannot attend any of the GUKPT legs available in 2009, the prize will be awarded to the player finishing in the next position.

The breakdown of the prizes can be seen below.

1st $4,500 GUKPT Package (3 x GUKPT legs)

2nd $3,000 GUKPT Package (2 x GUKPT legs)

3rd $1,500 GUKPT Package (1 x GUKPT leg)

Top 18 play for 1 additional Package ($1,500)

The top 18 (including the prize winners finishing in the top 3) will play for the remaining GUKPT package on a date to be confirmed.
