December is traditionally a slow month in terms of live poker tournaments in the United Kingdom and Ireland, and while this month is following that trend, there are still several places to head if you want to play a live poker tournament during December 2015.
With the PokerStars UKIKPT, Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) and the Genting Poker Series (GPS) done and dusted until 2016, it is time for some of the local casinos around the UK & Ireland to shine.
Grosvenor’s ever-popular 25/25 Series continues with two stops. These exciting tournaments cost £200+£20 to buy into and boast of a £25,000 guaranteed prize pool. Reading and Stockton are where you need to be for this month’s 25/25 fix, although you may want to head online to Grosvenor Poker to see if you can win your £200+£20 seat for a fraction of the cost.
Those you in or around Glasgow should head to Alea for two big tournaments. The first is the Leg 10 of its Alea Monthly Series, a £100+£10 buy-in event that always attracts a sizeable field, then a week later the Alea Monthly Series Final takes place, which is sure to be a real cracker.
There are four different tournaments running in Ireland around the holiday season, two in Carlow and two in Dublin, if you’re in that beautiful part of the world, while Luton is the place to be as the year comes to an end as that is where the eagerly anticipated New Year Deepstack Weekender takes place.
