The UK Poker circuit is getting busy again and this week sees many a summer festival begin. If you want to make a trip out to the green felt this week look no further than our guide to the best tournaments in the UK.
The Great British Poker Tour - Leeds
If you didn't know about this event already then you are not going, because the main event sold out several weeks ago. If you near the Gala Casino in Leeds, however, there are a number of side events that might interest you and winning one will also snag you a seat to the main event on Saturday.
Wed 15 Aug at 7.00 pm £ 50 + 5 No Limit Hold'em Rebuys available (90mins).
Thu 16 Aug at 7.00 pm £ 100 + 10 No Limit Hold'em Freezeout. Winner gets a main event seat.
Fri 17 Aug at 7.00 pm £ 200 + 20 No Limit Hold'em Freezeout. Winner gets a main event seat
The Summer Festival - Sheffield
Expect to see a lot of the fallout from the Leeds event here as the Owlerton Casino in Sheffield will be hosting their quarterly festival this week. Napoleans casinos are now non smoking (as are everywhere in the country now) so we anticipate a big turnout for this event. You will also bump into Pokernews writer Barry Carter, (aka, me) who is playing in all the events:
Wed 15 Aug £ 100 + 10 No Limit Hold'em Rebuys available.
Thu 16 - Fri 17 Aug £ 300 + 25 No Limit Hold'em Freezeout.
Fri 17 - Sat 18 Aug £ 500 + 30 No Limit Hold'em Double chance.
NPL 2007 Global Poker Circuit - London
The newest tour on the world poker circuit arrives at the Loose Cannon Club in London this week and a lot of big names have already confirmed. You can join Tony G and friends or watch the main event from the comfort of your own home as we are providing live updates from Friday.
