  • Looking for a major live poker tournament in the UK or Ireland during July 2016? PokerNews has you covered.

With the attention of the poker world focussed on the happenings in Las Vegas where the 2016 World Series of Poker is taking place, it is easy to forget there are some fantastic live poker tournaments running on home soil during July.

It is a busy month ahead for the team at Dusk Till Dawn and partypoker who are running no less than five events during July 2016. Four of those are the $50,000 guaranteed Grand Prix Poker Tour (GPPT) Minis at Bristol, Newcastle, Birmingham, and Glasgow, with the $250,000 guaranteed GPPT Brighton leg taking place as July ends.

There are two major tournaments in Ireland this month, namely the LSPkr 30/30 Series II and the Northern Open, both of which are in the capital city of Dublin.

888poker is another company upping the ante this coming month with three events at Aspers Casino in London. Players can choose from the 888 Max Poker Event, the 888 Summer Special, and the 888 Live Local events.

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated tournament of the month is the 2016 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Goliath event.

A record-breaking field of 4,120 took part in the £120 buy-on event in 2015, creating a £421,000 prize pool that obliterated the £250,000 guarantee. This year, the organisers are hoping for a field of 5,000, which would be amazing if it happened.

Miikka Toikka is the reigning champion, the flying Finn bagged himself £75,800 for his victory. Will you be following in his footsteps come the end of the month?
