UKIPT London Begins Today; Main Event Held at The Vic
The PokerStars United Kingdom & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) is in the British capital for the UKIPT London festival.
UKIPT London will run from March 5 through to March 10 and will split its time between the Grosvenor Victoria Casino – often call The Vic – and The Hippodrome casino, where yesterday the PokerStars LIVE poker lounge was opened.
Although the UKIPT has had a stop in London previously, this is the first time a full UKIPT festival has taken place in “The Big Smoke,” and with the European Poker Tour, World Poker Tour and PKR in the capital over the next few week, there is every chance that UKIPT London could be massive.
