  • Check out the schedule for the 2016 UK Student Poker Championships.

The 2016 edition of the UK Student Poker Championships (UKSPC) is right around the corner, taking place at the Grosvenor Casino at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry between April 4-10.

Last year’s Main Event saw 801 entries, breaking the attendance record and seeing more than a 30 percent increase on 2014’s field of 544. Cillian Berragan of the University of Hull was the last student standing, claiming the £6,190 first place prize, a £120 Goliath seat, and a £550 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour entry.

A total of nine tournaments are scheduled, most of which are open to all players, but the six-max, High Roller and the Main Event are only available to those who meet the UKSPC’s criteria as being a student.

In order to be eligible to play in these tournaments, players must currently be a student, or have been a student within the last three years. Students must show a Student Card that has an expiration date of 2013 or later otherwise they will be refused entry. The same proof is also required on Day 2 should they make it that far.
