Live poker tournaments in April 2016


  • There are 20 major live poker tournaments to play in the United Kingdom and Ireland during April 2016.

The United Kingdom and Ireland are officially into the spring months of the year, but it isn’t only the weather that is heating up, it is the live poker tournament scene, too. There are no fewer than 20 major live events taking place up and down the country, from Portsmouth to Glasgow, and the short hop across the sea to Dublin.

PokerStars’ UKIPT London festival heads to the Hippodrome Casino between April 5-10 and brings with it a 13-tournament schedule, including a £2,200 buy-in high roller event and the £770 UKIPT London Main Event.

Dusk Till Dawn and partypoker also feature heavily in the April schedule thanks to their Grand Prix Poker Tour (GPPT) and GPPT Mini tours running events. April 9-10 are the dates for the GPPT Leeds stop, which takes place at the home of Leeds United, Elland Road, with the recently launched GPPT Mini tour stopping off at Apsers in Newcastle, the Broadway Casino in Birmingham, and the Manchester 235 casino.
