One of the most popular and well received live poker festivals of 2014 is set to return in February 2015, much to the delight of the United Kingdom's poker community.
The 2015 Sky Poker UK Poker Championships are set to run at Dusk Till Dawn in February with the £500,000 guaranteed Main Event pencilled in for February 25 through March 1. Once again, the Main Event features a £1,000 buy-in and satellites to it are currently running at Sky Poker, starting as low as £1.15.
Details of the full schedule are yet to be released, but UK & Ireland PokerNews anticipates a full range of exciting tournaments to rival the 2013 edition, which featured a £3,150 High Roller, a £550 Heads-Up, £550 Pot Limit Omaha, £550 NL Hold'em Six-Max and a £550 NL Hold'em Turbo.
It was Alex Spencer who won the inaugural Sky Poker UK Poker Championships Main Event, outlasting 620 opponent to collect the £125,000 first place prize. Everyone who competed in that particular tournament including the likes of Danny Blair, Charles Chattha, Marcel Luske, Richard Trigg, Alex Goulder, Liam Batey, Jamie Roberts, Ben Martin, Scott Shelley, Jon Kalmar, Richard Milner and Ben Dobson were full of praise for it and it makes no wonder that it is one of the nominations for Best UK Poker Tournament at the 2014 British Poker Awards.
As mentioned, the full schedule is still being finalised, but as soon as the information comes available UK & Ireland PokerNews will bring it to you.
Until then, we'd suggest heading to Sky Poker and jumping into some of the 2015 UK Poker Championships before all of the sharks decide to do the same. You never know, you could be playing for a share of £500,000 for as little as £1.15.
