If you ever needed evidence that the live poker scene in the United Kingdom and Ireland is vibrant and booming then feast your eyes on the schedule of major live events taking place on our shores during April.

The biggest and richest event of the month is the partypoker MILLIONS festival at Dusk Till Dawn where there are combined guarantees of more than £8 million to play for. The MILLIONS Main Event features a £6 million guaranteed prize pool and a first-place prize of at least £1 million.

In addition to the huge Main Event, there are two high roller tournaments on the schedule. One costs £10,300 to enter and the other is a £2,700 buy in; both have prize pools guaranteed to be at least £1 million.

partypoker and the folks at DTD are also involved in the Grand Prix Dublin festival at the Clayton Hotel Dublin Airport from Apr. 28 through to May 1. The highlight of this stop is the €150,000 guaranteed Main Event, which players can qualify for online at partypoker.

Both the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour and Genting Poker Series host legs of their 2017 tour during April. The GUKPT heads to Walsall during the final week of the month while the GPS is running one of its popular ‘mini’ events in Glasgow, Scotland.

Another highlight of the month is the Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) World Championship of Amateur Poker. Eighteen events are on the schedule with several variants of poker on offer, including no-limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha, Stud, H.O.R.S.E, Crazy Pineapple and more.

Complementing the events mentioned above are a brace of 888poker tournaments at Aspers Casino in London, four major tournaments in Luton — some say Luton is the spiritual home of British poker — a PokerStars-run Megastack event at the Hippodrome Casino and a couple of Grosvenor 25/25 Series tournaments in Southend and Bolton.
