UKIPT London Kicks Off October 2; Have You Won a Main Event Seat Yet?

Reigning UKIPT London Champion Sergio Aido

The PokerStars United Kingdom & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) heads to London at the start of October for the third leg of its fourth season. With only one week to go until the UKIPT London Main Event commences, time really is running out if you want to win your way into the £1,100 buy-in event rather than having to buy yourself in at the full asking price.

The UKIPT London Main Event takes place between October 2 and October 6 and should be one of the biggest UKIPT events ever held. The reason for the anticipated massive turnout is the fact the UKIPT festival runs alongside the European Poker Tour London festival.

When the UKIPT London Main Event ran in 2012, a casino-filling crowd of 1,099 players bought in for £770 and created a prize pool of £746,221. On that occasion, London-based Spaniard Sergio Aido walked away with the top honours and £144,555 in prize money. With the venue changing from the Grosvenor Victoria Casino to the Grand Connaught Rooms on Great Queen Street (WC2B 5DA), there should be plenty more room to fit in an even more substantial crowd.

It is not only the £1,100 Main Event that the UKIPT is about; there are also a myriad of side events taking place throughout the UKIPT festival. Some of the highlights include the fun and exciting £110 Win The Button Turbo event, the eagerly anticipated £330 UKIPT London Cup and the £2,200 UKIPT High Roller.
