Big Month of Live Poker In March 2015 For the UK & Ireland

Dusk Till Dawn

The live poker scene in the United Kingdom and Ireland is positively booming right now and live grinders are being spoilt for choice when it comes to low and mid-stakes tournaments. March is no different, with several major events taking place around the country and those being complemented by some smaller, yet still exciting, tournaments.

One of the biggest live tournaments taking place in the UK during March is the £100,000 guaranteed Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) £300 Deepstack. The excellently structured Deepstack events are what first put DTD on the map and they still prove popular today. This latest instalment runs from March 5 through March 8 and takes advantage of the club’s recent partnership with partypoker as Day 1a takes place online.

Three other big players flex their muscles in March, namely the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT), Genting Poker Series (GPS) and the Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT).

The GUKPT runs first, heading to Manchester for the second leg of the 2015 tour between March 8-15. Last year’s GUKPT Manchester Main Event saw 192 entries in total (leaving the tour with an £8,000 overlay), among them some of the best poker talent that the UK has to offer.

In the end it was Rhys “floppinhel” Jones who emerged victorious, scooping £42,000 after defeating a final table that was the home to the likes of Simon Deadman, Steven Warburton, Richard Kellett and Karl Mahrenholz.

One day after the GUKPT Manchester crowns it champion, the GPS Southend leg kicks off. The 2014 edition saw Rob McAdam outlast a field of 270 to grab the winner’s trophy and a bankroll-boosting £33,730 in prize money.

As mentioned, the ever popular APAT heads to London as March ends for the latest incarnation of its World Championship Of Amateur Poker (WCOAP), a festival that we will look into in much greater detail closer to the time, but trust us when we say that you do not want to miss out on what is sure to be a spectacular event in “the big smoke.”
