Although dates of the other legs of the tour are yet to be announced, PokerStars said the UKIPT will travel to Edinburgh, Nottingham (where there is a £1 million guarantee), Bristol, Dublin and returns to Marbella, too.

The UKIPT awarded £7,181,279 million in prizes during Season 4 and saw more than 9,095 players compete across its events. A large chunk of that impressive total stemmed from the UKIPT Season 4 Grand Final in October 2014 that saw 1,089 players compete in the £700+£70 buy-in finale, all of whom were outlasted by Brett Angell who returned to the North East with £115,083.
