Season 5 of the PokerStars UK & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) continues next week when it heads to Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) for the latest instalment of the UKIPT Nottingham festival.
Nottingham has been on the UKIPT calendar since the tour’s creation back in 2009. The inaugural UKIPT Nottingham Main Event was a £500+£60 buy-in affair that attracted 650 players. Andrew Couldridge walked away with the lion’s share of the spoils that year, defeating Germany’s Oliver Schaffmann heads-up to get his hands on £80,000.
Gareth Walker won the Season 2 edition and it’s £97,700 first place prize, followed by Robert Baguley in Season 3 who scooped £210,400 for outlasting 1,624 opponents – the largest-ever score at UKIPT Nottingham.
Last season saw Duncan McLellan win his second UKIPT Main Event, adding the Nottingham title to the Isle of Man trophy he won seventh months earlier.
UKIPT Newcastle Past Results
This latest UKIPT Nottingham Main Event has a twist to it in that players can now re-enter on the same day that they bust and on subsequent starting flights.
Day 1a kicks off at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday 12 April and is sure to be one of the softer of the four start days due to it being a Sunday. Days 1b though to 1d take place at the earlier time of noon on Wednesday 15 April through to Friday 17 April.
Some of the big names who have already qualified for the £1 million guaranteed Main Event via PokerStars include Ben “f3nix35” Dobson, Jono “GAWA9” Crute, Martin “moertelmu” Mulsow, Christopher “NigDawG” Brammer, Jack “jackziyang” Salter, Tom “Jabracada” Hall, Jeff “JaffaCake” Kimber, Ben “Spraggs” Spraggons, Daragh “Daragh999” Davey and Dara “SlowDoke” O’Kearney.
In addition to the Main Event, there are a handful of side events taking place. The ballas among you will no doubt be looking forward to the £150,000 guaranteed High Roller (£3,000+£200 buy-in), while the more affordable £300+£30 Notts Cup is sure to be popular too.
