The focus and attention of the poker world may be fixated on the 2017 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas during June, but if you are a poker tournament players hailing from the United Kingdom or Ireland, you have plenty of events to keep you on your toes that are much closer to home.
Nottingham is the place to be, Dusk Till Dawn to be exact, if you want to play in the tournament with the largest guaranteed prize pool. The folks at DTD and partypoker are running a £220 buy in Grand Prix UK event which has a massive £1 million guarantee slapped on it.
Players in the Grand Prix UK can play several online Day 1s at partypoker, and live Day 1s at DTD and a handful of other casinos from the UK and Ireland before heading to DTD to complete the event and, hopefully, win a slice of the seven-figure prize pool.
Kicking off the month is the 888 MAX at Aspers Casino Westfield, London. As the name suggests, this is an 888poker sponsored event so players should expect a great structure and plenty of fun at the tables.
888poker also have an event in London during June, one taking place at the Village Green Card Club in Dublin. The 888Live Special Edition Dubin event runs from June 8-12.
Towards the end of the month, the PokerStars Megastack heads to the Hippodrome Casino, London for its three-day festival, which includes a £170 Main Event and a £330 High Roller. Head to PokerStars to see if you can win your way into one of these events for a fraction of their cost.
