UKIPT Edinburgh Starts Today

Edinburgh

The PokerStars.com sponsored UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) is in Scotland between Wednesday 10 August and Sunday 14 August for UKIPT Edinburgh. The £500+£60 Main Event starts on Thursday 11 August and runs until Sunday 14 August but there are also no fewer than 20 tournaments taking place at the Corn Exchange on Newmarket Road, with buy-ins ranging from just £50+£5 and going all the way up the £1,500 +£120 for the High Roller event.

Last year, the inaugural UKIPT Edinburgh, it was Nick Abou Risk who was crowned champion. He walked away with £50,000 in cash and a £5,000 seat to the EPT London Main Event after outlasting a field of 401 players, including Jesse May, Liv Boeree and Jake Cody. This year's event has been capped at 700 players but please be aware that the 2011 UKIPT Edinburgh also clashes with the famous Edinburgh Festival so accommodation charges, if you are planning on staying in the Scottish capital, are going to be rather high and / or sold out.
