The Grand Connaught Rooms Welcomes the 2014 UKIPT / EPT London Festival

The Grand Connaught Rooms Welcomes the 2014 UKIPT / EPT London Festival 0001

It may have been less than a day since the 2014 UKIPT Isle of Man festival came to a thrilling conclusion with Josh Hart walking away with the Main Event title, but they say that time stands still for no man and it appears the same is the case for major live poker events.

At 7:30 p.m tonight (October 7), the 2014 UKIPT London festival gets under way with a £150+£15 super satellite to the eagerly anticipated UKIPT London Main Event. This satellite pays out one seat for every £770 that is in the prize pool, takes place at The Hippodrome Casino and has a hard cap of 130 players, which if reached would see 25 seats awarded.

The 2014 UKIPT London Main Event kicks off at midday on October 8 with the first of its two starting flights. With a £500,000 guaranteed prize pool, PokerStars needs at least 714 players to walk through the doors of the luxurious Grand Connaught Rooms in order to avoid an overlay.

Last year’s Main Event attracted 747 players and they were all outlasted by Scotland’s Robbie Bull who headed back north of the border with £113,405 in his back pocket – following a heads-up deal – after defeating a star-studded final table that homed the likes of Paul Zimbler, Karl Mahrenholz, Dario Sammartino, Jack Salter and runner-up Ian Simpson.

Running alongside the UKIPT is the London leg of the European Poker Tour, which means some of the biggest names in world poker are heading to the English capital to seek fame and fortune.

The £4,000+£250 buy-in EPT London Main Event aside, highlights include a £5,000+£300 Pot Limit Omaha event, the £2,200 buy-in UKIPT High Roller, and the £10,000+£300 EPT London High Roller (single re-entry).
