Where to Get Your Live Poker Fix in January 2015

Where to Get Your Live Poker Fix in January 2015 0001

We love online poker here at UK & Ireland PokerNews, but on occasion we like to leave the comforting bosom of our favourite grind chair and head out into the big wide world and feel the icy blast of a casino's air conditioning on our faces.

If you're not fortunate enough to be sunning yourself in the Bahamas for the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure you can still enjoy plenty of poker action closer to home and if you turn the heating up then you probably won't notice the difference!

The popular Grosvenor 25/25 Series heads to Leeds, Portsmouth, Walsall, Glasgow and Manchester during January. Each of these superb events cost £220 to enter and for that affordable sum you receive 25,000 tournament chips and get to play for a slice of £25,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Should the £220 buy-in be out of the realms of your bankroll you can always head to Grosvenor Poker and try to win yourself a seat for cheap.

There are three awesome tournaments taking place in London in January that you simply cannot afford to miss.

First, the opening leg of the fifth season of the PokerStars UKIPTheads to “The Smoke” between January 20 -25 and straight after it the first leg of the 2015 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) takes place at The Poker Room – formerly The Vic – from January 25 through February 1.

Wrapping up a fantastic January in London is the relaunch of the 888poker Local Live event. The highlight of the three day mini festival is a £50,000 guaranteed Main Event that costs a mere £220 to enter. The 888poker Local Live festival takes place at the excellent Aspers casino in Stratford.

Head on over to PokerStars to try and qualify for the UKIPT London Main Event, Grosvenor Poker if you want to bag yourself a GUKPT London seat and 888poker to win your way to the Aspers tournament.

Those of you who want more craic while you play poker should set sail, or book a cheap flight, to Dublin in Ireland for two festivals.

The Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) heads to Bewleys Hotel Dublin Airport for its Irish Amateur Poker Championship that is being played as Pot Limit Omaha on January 10-11, then on January 30 the Dublin Poker Festival opens its doors and promises a plethora of events until its closes shop on February 8 – we'll have more on this later.
