Two of the United Kingdom’s major tours have their opening festivals of the year in January. The 2017 Genting Poker Series gets underway with a “mini” event at the Genting Casino in Luton, while the 2017 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour gets underway on January 29 at The Poker Room formerly known as The Vic in the heart of London.
Another London-based event that you cannot afford to miss is the inaugural PokerStars Festival London at the Hippodrome Casino. Nine tournaments are scheduled for the festival, including a £400,000 guaranteed Main Event costing £990 to enter.
January also sees the launch of a new regular tournament at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham called the DTD200. As the name suggests, the DTD200 costs £200 (plus £20 rake) to enter. The event has a £100,000 guaranteed prize pool, which includes 20 x £550 tickets to the £6 million guaranteed MILLIONS tournament, and its format changes every week to include 6-max, a bounty tournament, and 8-max.
You can play a Day 1 to the DTD200 online at partypoker where if you Partypoker software via UK & Ireland PokerNews and use the bonus code “UKPNEWS16” when making your first deposit, you will receive a 100% up to £250 bonus.
