If live poker tournaments are your thing, and you are based in the United Kingdom or Ireland, you’re in luck because the month of May is packed full of events up and down our great countries.
The ever-popular Grosvenor 25/25 series features five legs this month, with the £220 buy-in tournaments taking place in Leeds, Luton, Walsall, Glasgow, and Thanet, before its bigger brother, the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour, heads to Walsall as May draws to a close, taking with it a £550 buy-in Main Event.
Our friends at Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) are as busy as they have ever been, and not only at their Nottingham-based club. First, the DTD crowd stop at the Rainbow Casino in Bristol for the latest Grand Prix Poker Tour (GPPT) Mini event before heading north of the border halfway through May for the $250,000 guaranteed GPPT Glasgow tournament, which is held at Hampden Park. DTD’s club will be packed to the rafters for the WPT National UK festival that runs from May 19-22.
