More UKIPT Season 5 Stops Unveiled

PokerStars UKIPT

Fans of and regulars on the PokerStars sponsored UK & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) can plan the rest of their year out after the organisers unveiled the rest of the stops for 2015.

We already knew about the UKIPT returning to Marbella and Bristol, but it is now confirmed that the popular tour drops anchor in its home town on the Isle of Man in October before heading to the Scottish capital, Edinburgh, in Edinburgh. A trip to Dublin was pencilled in for February 27-March 3 but that seems to have vanished without a trace.

Next up for the UKIPT is the massive £1,000,000 guaranteed UKIPT Nottingham Main Event held at Dusk Till Dawn between April 13-20. When the event ran last season, a record-breaking field of 1,223 players crammed into the DTD and created a £1,223,000 prize pool. The lion's share of that tidy sum went to Duncan McLellan who became only the fourth ever double UKIPT champion; McLellan won the UKIPT Isle of Man Main Event, of course.

Once Nottingham is out of the way, the UKIPT jets off to a sunnier climate for the UKIPT Marbella festival (June 15-21) before returning to the UK and heading to the Rainbow Casino inside Bristol's Harbourside. Bristol was on the Season 3 calendar and was taken down by the talented German Wojtek Barzantny.

After Bristol comes the UKIPT Isle of Man festivities. Running from October 1-4, the UKIPT Isle of Man is sure to be a popular stop especially as it runs alongside the Isle of Man International Chess Tournament.

Rounding out 2015 is UKIPT Edinburgh, which takes place at the Genting Club Casino at Fountain Park, a first for a UKIPT Main Event. In addition to the £770 Main Event, UKIPT Edinburgh also features a £330 Edinburgh Cup, and a £2,200 High Roller.
