Sky Poker Tour

On the eve of the SPT Main Event in Nottingham, Sky Poker has announced a revamped schedule for the 2011/12 Sky Poker Tour season, with over £250,000 in guaranteed prizepools and even more chances for players to win a Sky Poker Tour event. With more two day events, SPT side events, a split venue weekend and even larger guaranteed prize pools, Season 4 should be a stormer for players of the UK poker room.

Please find below details for the six Sky Poker Tour legs and the Grand Final finale which will once again be hosted at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham.

As well as the Main Events at each of these legs, all venues will also be hosting SPT side events on both Friday and Saturday nights. Two day events will also see the inclusion of a Sunday side event, completing what will promise to be a bumper weekend of poker.

“It’s promises to be the biggest and best ever Sky Poker Tour. Our customers love these events and I’m sure they will be putting dates in the diary for these” said Richard Milner, head of Sky Poker. “With the addition of a new Sky Poker Tour Leaderboard too, it’s sure to be even more competitive tour.”

This is a really impressive looking tour in this writers opinion, with the right mix of buy-ins and variety of events to appeal to the broadest possibly demographic, while at the same time standing out a little from the crowd.

Details of the satellites for Leg 1 of the 2011-12 Sky Poker Tour will be announced soon, but as always each tournament will be designed for smaller bankrolls and focus on great structures. For further information, go here.
