Major Live UK & Ireland Poker Tournaments in April 2018

Live poker

April is a month infamous for its rainy showers but if you’re a live poker tournament player you’ll be hoping you’re not hitting the showers during the fourth month of 2018 because there are dozens of events for you to get stuck into.

Two popular venues are busy during April, namely Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham and The Poker Room formerly The Vic in the British capital of London.

DTD is running a DTD200 and DTD100 on Saturday and Sunday respectively throughout the month. The DTD200 is a £220 buy-in affair with a £30,000 guaranteed prize pool, while the DTD100 commands a £110 buy-in and offers a £20,000 guaranteed prize pool. Both events are played over the course of one day.

Big spenders can head to DTD on Apr. 20 when a £50,000 guaranteed six-max tournament is scheduled. This one-day tournament has a £1,100 buy-in and two days later there’s a more affordable £110 buy-in six-handed event with a £20,000 guarantee.

Players can qualify for these tournaments using the new DTD£££ satellites online at partypoker, which award credit for the DTD club instead of traditional seats and ticket.

The Poker Room formerly The Vic plays host to no fewer than five big tournaments this week. Check out the table below to see when the famous Vic is running its live events.

A trio of major live tours also run events this month. The Genting Poker Series has both a Main and a Mini tournaments scheduled. The Main, a £440 buy-in with £100,000 guaranteed, takes place in Sheffield and the cut-price Mini runs in Salford and sees a £220 buy-in offer a £35,000 guarantee.

The ever popular PokerStars Megastack London returns towards the end of the month and gives you the chance to play for a share of a guaranteed £40,000 for a £170 buy-in, or even less if you win your way into this tournament online at PokerStars. There's also a Megastack Dublin costing €170 to enter with a €50,000 gyarantee. Don’t forget that by signing up to PokerStars via UK & Ireland PokerNews, entering the marketing code “PNEWS32” and using the bonus code “STARS600” when making your first deposit gives you a 100 percent up to $600 bonus and access to the PokerNews bi-weekly $3,000 freerolls.

Fans of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour need to head north of the border this month because the next GUKPT leg takes place in Edinburgh. There’s a £560 buy-in Main Event with a £100,000 guaranteed prize pool as the flagship tournament of that particular festival.
