The fourth biannual Sky Poker UK Poker Championship (UKPC) takes place at Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) in Nottingham during August and does so in an exciting six-max format and with a huge £250,000 guaranteed Main Event.
Four events take place between August 19 and August 23, each of them played on short-handed tables. A £1,500+£150 High Roller with its £75,000 guarantee gets the festival started and this is followed by the £500+£50 buy-on Main Event that carries a lofty £250,000.
Sandwiched either side of the Main Event is a £150+£15 buy-in 6-Max Mini that sees players battle it out for a share of at least £50,000 and the £150+£15 buy-in one day event and its £10,000 guarantee.

Those of you planning on playing in the UKPC Main Event need to know that the only way you can secure a seat is by buying in direct at DTD or winning a seat via satellites at Sky Poker. Shoud you win a seat at Sky Poker, you’ll automatically be registered for the Day 1c flight on Friday 21 August.
Players can re-enter one per flight and are allowed to enter as many starting flights as they wish, but can only take their largest stack through to Day 2.
Online satellites are running at Sky Poker now and there looks to be some superb value in them. Satellites start as low as £1.30 and increase gradually until they feed into the weekly UKPC Final on Sunday at 9:15pm that pays out one-in-five and has 15 seats guaranteed every time it runs.
If you don’t have a Sky Poker account download one via UK & Ireland PokerNews and you’ll not only receive a free £10 when you register your account but your first deposit is matched 200% up to £500 too.
