Britain may be dominating the poker world over in Las Vegas right now, but that doesn’t mean poker has come to a halt at home. Tomorrow sees the start of the next leg of the PokerStars UK & Ireland Poker Tour, this time at the Aspers Casino in Newcastle.
The £500+£50 UKIPT Newcastle main event has a cap of 500 players, and gets underway tomorrow and Friday in two day 1s. Also on the schedule are several side events, including a £100 charity event and a £1000 added satellite to UKIPT Brighton.
You can qualify for every leg of the tour at PokerStars. If you sign up to PokerStars through PokerNews you will also be eligible for our $15,000 Main Event Passport freeroll on June 30, which could see you play in the WSOP Main Event for free this summer.
