Live Poker Events in the UK and Ireland During November 2017
The year is rapidly drawing to a close but the live poker action in the United Kingdom and Ireland is showing no signs of slowing down, as you can see from the table below.
Kicking off the month is the first of two major PokerStars-run events. Genting Resorts World plays host to PokerStars MegaStack Birmingham from Nov. 2-5, a £170 buy-in event with three starting flights and a £25,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Later in the month, from Nov. 24-26, the PokerStars MegaStack heads to the Galway Bay Casino & Cardroom in Galway for the Connacht event. This tournament commands a €170 buy-in but has a €50,000 guarantee up for grabs.
Sandwiched between these events is the PokerStars Live London Series at the Hippodrome Casino from Nov. 9-12. This event has four starting flights to choose from, each costing £275 to enter. Of course, you can satellite into these tournaments online at PokerStars.
The folks at Grosvenor Casinos are busy this month with the final leg of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT), the GUKPT Grand Final and five Grosvenor 25/25 events spread up and down the country.
Each of the 25/25 Series cost £220 to buy into and feature a £25,000 guaranteed prize pool. Head to Walsall, Thanet, Aberdeen, Bolton and Stockton if you want to become a 25/25 Series champion.
The final leg of the 2017 GUKPT takes place in Blackpool from Nov. 5-12 and its Main Event is the showpiece event. The GUKPT Blackpool Main Event costs £1,100 to enter but for that princely sum you get the opportunity to play for a share of £200,000 guaranteed.
If you enter the GUKPT Grand Final at the Poker Room formerly known as The Vic from Nov. 19-26, you’ll need £2,125 in your back pocket. Buy-in with this sum and you’ll be playing for a share of a massive £400,000. Qualify for all of the Grosvenor events online at Grosvenor Poker.
Our friends at Dusk Till Dawn have a brace of £1,100 events in November. The first is the DTD 1000 from Nov. 3-5, a £1,100 buy-in six-max tournament with £250,000 up for grabs. The second event takes place on Nov. 18 and is the 1Day1K. As the name suggests, this tournament costs £1,100 to enter and has £50,000 guaranteed.
As Dusk Till Dawn and partypoker are partners, you can play Day 1s online or qualify for the live portion of these events online at partypoker.
One of the newer additions to the UK poker scene is the Victroria Gate Casino in Leeds. On Nov. 3, the poker room is having a relaunch with an £85 buy-in £20,000 guaranteed tournament that also have $3,000 worth of prizes added by partypoker. Cash game players who sit down from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p..m can enjoy a five percent rake capped at only £1; it is five percent up to £3 during all other times.
Finally, there is another 888Live Local event takes place at Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford. Head to the London casino from Nov. 24-27 with £220 in your wallet and you’ll get to play for a share of at least £88,000. Win your seat into this event online at 888poker.
