Forget Vegas, Live Poker Is Booming in the UK & Ireland in July

Forget Vegas, Live Poker Is Booming in the UK & Ireland in July 0001

Those of you who prefer live poker tournaments to their online counterparts can forget all about the going on in Las Vegas this July because the United Kingdom and Ireland is where it is at.

July is jam-packed with tournaments up and down the country with buy-ins to suit all skill and bankroll levels. If ever you needed hard evidence that live poker is booming on our shores, July’s calendar is it.

Kicking off the month in style is the latest edition of The Deepstack at Dusk Till Dawn. Featuring three £300+£30 buy-in events, including the £300,000 guaranteed Main Event, and a £1,000+£100 High Roller, DTD is the place to head for big money action. And don’t forget that DTD owner, Rob Yong, recently wrote that he only expects 850 players to compete in this particular Main Event, meaning there should be around £45,000 of extra value to enjoy.

Some of the UK’s other big hitters are also running events and festivals in July.

888live Local heads to Newcastle, while the Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) travels north of the border to Edinburgh for its Scottish Amateur Poker Championship. Back in England, the Genting Poker Series (GPS) stops off at Luton, the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) kicks off in Leeds and the World Poker Tour National London festival takes place at Aspers.

Throw into the mix several Grosvenor 25/25 tournaments, and the Full Tilt International Poker Open (IPO) Cork and everything points to July being a fantastic month of poker action.
