There are three of the popular Grosvenor 25/25 Series events taking place in May 2017. These run in Bradford, Dundee and Portsmouth and each carries a £25,000 guarantee for the £220 buy-in.

Also run by Grosvenor Casinos is the Reading leg of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour. The Reading leg has a large £100,000 guaranteed prize pool for a £550 buy-in, plus a whole host of satellites and side events taking place between May 21-28.

Another tournament that boasts of a £100,000 guaranteed prize pool is the DTD200 at Dusk Till Dawn. There are four such events scheduled during May, each taking place from Friday through Sunday each week. Online Day 1s and satellites take place at partypoker with Day 1c onwards taking place at the excellent Dusk Till Dawn poker club in Nottingham.

You can also play an online leg and qualify for the new Yorkshire VGCPoker Championship at partypoker. This new event is a £110 buy-in ($140 if you play online) tournament, running May 21-28, with a £30,000 guarantee and is the largest tournament the brand new casino has run since opening its poker room at the Victoria Gate Casino in the heart of Leeds. Earlier in May, there is an £85 buy-in event with a £10,000 guarantee. When it ran in April, 206 players bought in and created a £15,450 prize pool.

PokerStars is running three major tournaments during the fifth month of the year. The first is the PokerStars Megastack costing £170 to enter (there is also a £330 High Roller) before the second Megastack heads to the Regency Airport Hotel in Ireland. Completing the trio of PokerStars events in May is the PokerStars Live London Series on May 25-28. If you don’t have the £275 buy-in to hand, head online to PokerStars and see if you can win yourself a seat to this superb tournament.

Finally, if you find yourself with a couple of days to spend in London from May 25, you may want to head to the vast Aspers Casino Stratford because the 888Live London Local festival is taking place. The full schedule isn’t yet available, but as soon as it becomes public knowledge, you’ll be able to read about it here at PokerNews.
