In less than a week’s time, the inaugural UKIPT Isle of Man festival gets underway so if you have not won your seat to the £1,100 buy-in UKIPT Main Event then you need to hurry because time really is running out.
The UKIPT Isle of Man Main Event kicks off with its Day 1a at 12 p.m. on October 31, with the second and final starting flight taking place at the same time on November 1. An army of Team PokerStars Pros and Online stars are set to descend on the Isle of Man for this historic tournament, including the newly crowned World Series of Poker Player of the Year Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier, Barry Greenstein, David Williams, Jake Cody, Liv Boeree, Isaac Haxton and Vanessa Rousso.
How often do you get the chance to rub shoulders with players of this calibre for such a relatively short outlay? Not often, that we can tell you for free, which is why you need to grab the opportunity with both hands and win yourself a UKIPT Isle of Man Main Event seat of package at PokerStars.
You should be able to find a UKIPT Isle of Man satellite to suit your bankroll regardless of its size thanks to the sheer number of satellites PokerStars is running. Those of you who have been collecting Frequent Player Points (FPPs) will be happy to know there are plenty of daily FPP satellites running right up to the start of the UKIPT Isle of Man festival, while those of you out there who prefer to buy in with cash can do so in satellites costing between £0.50 and £215.
