It is this time of year when every poker player in the world forgets about what is going on in their home country and diverts their attention to the goings in in Las Vegas, Nevada where the World Series of Poker (WSOP) takes place.
While it is only right that the biggest and longest-running poker festival of all-time becomes a focal point for the poker community, players should also be aware that there are still plenty of opportunities to win big on home soil, particularly if you call the United Kingdom or Ireland home.
There are no fewer than six Grosvenor 25/25 events running during June, there’s the Unibet Open Glasgow festival too. Throw into the mix the latest legs of the Genting Poker Series (GPS) and Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) and the revamped Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) Deepstack series and we’re in for an action-packed month even if the WSOP dominates the headlines.
