Poker players from the United Kingdom and Ireland are once again spoiled for choice where to play a major live poker event this November with more than a dozen tournaments and festivals spread up and down their countries.
The biggest of these events takes place at The Poker Room formerly The Vic, London between November 20-27 when the 2016 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) draws to a close with its Grand Final, which has a £2,125 Main Event featuring a massive £400,000 guaranteed prize pool among its many side events.
Before the GUKPT Grand Final, between November 6-13, is the final leg of the 2016 GUKPT, the popular Blackpool stop. This £1,100 buy-in event has a £200,000 guarantee and has been a mainstay on the tour thanks to the seaside location where there is a vibrant nightlight.
Qualify for both the GUKPT Blackpool Main Event and Grand Final online at Grosvenor Poker.
Another big guaranteed tournament is the Dusk Till Dawn Grand Prix, which as the name suggests, takes place at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. This particular tournament features online Day 1s – at Partypoker – and live Day 1s, giving players plenty of flexibility as they attempt to turn £90 into a share of a guaranteed £250,000.
