Poker players in the United Kingdom and Ireland are, once again, spoiled for choice when it comes to being able to choose where to play live poker this month because the calendar is jam-packed with major events around the British Isles.
All five of the UK’s major live tours are circulating around during April and each will be well attended.
The 2015 Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) World Championship Of Amateur Poker (WCOAP) has been running since March 28 and continues through until its finale on April 6. The WCOAP takes place at Aspers in Stratford, which is in a fantastic location and we’d highly recommend heading down there to compete in the excellently run APAT tournaments or the plethora of juicy cash games that run 24/7.
Players from the North East get two major events this month thanks to the Genting Poker Series (GPS) and the partypoker WPT National UK tours both setting sail for the home of the Geordies. The GPS is up first, running from April 6 to April 12 and boasting of a £100,000 guarantee while the WPT National UK drops anchor in Newcastle at the very end of the month, April 30.
Sandwiched between these events are the eagerly anticipated UKIPT Nottingham festival and the next leg of the 2015 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT). Featuring a £1 million guarantee, the UKIPT Nottingham Main Event is definitely the cherry on the top of April’s cake, but the GUKPT Edinburgh festivities are not to be mixed either. Decisions, decisions.
Other highlights include, but aren’t limited to, the 2015 Paddy Power Irish Open, the latest Grosvenor UK Student Poker Championships (UKSPC), a splattering of Grosvenor 25/25 Series’ and the Sussex Masters in Brighton.
