PokerStars UKIPT Season 4 Schedule Announced

PokerStars UKIPT Season 4 Schedule Announced 0001

The United Kingdom and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) is one of the most popular poker tours in the UK & Ireland and that popularity looks set to spread outside of our shores as Season 4 takes the PokerStars sponsored tour farther afield.

The opening event from Season 4 of the UKIPT has been and gone, Jake Cody taking down the Series 1 at the Hippodrome in mid-April. The first “proper” UKIPT event of Season 4 sees the tour jet off to Marbella, Spain for the PokerStars Marbella Festival.

The PokerStars Marbella Festival will mark the first time that the UKIPT has left the UK & Ireland and will also be the first UKIPT Main Event to feature the new €1,000 +€100 buy-in. Kicking off at 12:00 on Wednesday 12 June, the UKIPT Marbella Main Event is sure to attract hundreds of sun-seeking poker players to the Casino Marbella.

After sunning itself in the Mediterranean sun the KIPT returns to The Hippodrome Casino for the £250+£25 Series 2 in late June before setting sail for Galway on August 8 for what should be one of the biggest UKIPT events on record if the 1,200 player cap is anything to go by.

Taking the UKIPT to the end of 2013 is a third Series at The Hippodrome Casino, the ever-popular UKIPT London, the inaugural UKIPT Isle of Man and the first six-max UKIPT Main Event that is to be held at Nottingham’s Dusk Till Dawn.
