Live Poker Events in the UK & Ireland During August 2018
The World Series of Poker is over. The kids are off school for what seems like an eternity and Christmas is only four paydays away. But is isn’t all bad because there is a decent selection of live poker tournaments in the United Kingdom and Ireland to get stuck into during August 2018.
With an estimated field of more than 6,000 entrants and a first place prize guaranteed to be £100,000, the GUKPT Goliath is the biggest event of the month. The first starting flights have taken place, but there is still time to get involved in this massive event and see if you can turn a £125 investment into a six-figure score.
Staying with Grosvenor casinos, there are for Grosvenor 25/25 events scheduled during August. London and Bolton host the £225 buy-in £25,000 guaranteed tournaments from Aug. 9 with Luton and Sheffield rounding off the month from Aug. 30.
There are also two Genting Poker Series taking place during the eighth month of the year. Head to Stoke on Trent from Aug. 16 for the £35,000 guaranteed Mini; this will set you back £220. Then get yourself to Liverpool from Aug. 27 for the £440 buy-in Main taking place there with its £100,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Then there's the PokerStars MEGASTACK Dublin event, a €50,000 guaranteed tournament costing €170 to enter that will award its eventual champion a $30,000 Platinum Pass for the upcoming PokerStars Players Championship in The Bahamas.
Finally, the folks at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham are going to be busy throughout August thanks to running two editions of its partypoker LIVE Deepstack and a Grand Prix. Each Deepstack is a £550 buy-in with a £250,000 guarantee slapped on it, with the Grand Prix guaranteeing a prize pool of £250,000 for a buy-in of only £165.
