partypoker Announces the Online UK Championship Series
Poker tournament players from the United Kingdom have the chance to play for a share of more than $220,000 in the inaugural partypoker UK Championship Series.
Hosted online at partypoker, the UK Championship Series takes place between May 21-28 and sees a total of 10 Day 1s spread across four buy in levels, which culminates in a final held at 8:00 p.m. BST on May 28.
The Day 1s shuffle up and deal at 8:00 p.m. every day from May 21-27 and a further three flights commence at 3:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on May 28, with the latter being played to a turbo blind structure so that players who progress from the last Day 1 can take their seat in the final.
