Seven Event UKIPT Super Series Commences October 14

PokerStars UKIPT Super Series

PokerStars LIVE at The Hippodrome is gearing up for its UKIPT Super Series, a seven event, five-day festival that runs from Wednesday 14 October through to Sunday 18 October, 2015.

The action kicks off on the evening of October 14 with a £70+£5 buy-in freezeout satellite to the UKIPT Super Series Main Event where one seat is awarded for each £550 in the prize pool. Players in the satellite start their quest for a cut-price seat with 7,000 chips and play to 20-minute blinds.

The £500+£50 (plus 3% of the prize pool withheld for floor staff and dealers) UKIPT Super Series Main Event has three starting flights available with those unfortunate enough to burn through their 25,000 starting stack able to re-enter once per flight.

Day 1a begins at 7:30pm on October 15, with Day 1b getting underway at 1:00pm on October 16 and the third and final starting flight scheduled for 7:30pm also on October 16.

Blinds during the starting flight are 30-minutes in length and they increase to 40-minutes on Day 2 and grow even longer to 50-minutes at the final table, which is set to take place at 1:00pm on October 18.

Sandwiched between the UKIPT Super Series Main Event are five other tournaments including a £1,500+£150 eight-handed High Roller with a single re-entry, a £200+£20 no limit hold’em Win The Button and a £15-+£15 no limit hold’em Womens event.

The UKIPT Series Main Events are popular tournament and often see large prize pools created even if they typically command a buy-in half the price of this Super Series edition.

Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody won the inaugural UKIPT Series Main Event, outlasting 342 opponents to claim the £19,400 first place prize.
