PokerStars UKIPT Returns To Dublin For The First Time in Six Years From May 16
The PokerStars United Kingdom & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) makes it long-awaited return to Dublin, Ireland, from May 16 and stays in the Emerald Isle for a week until May 22. It marks the first time in six long years that the UKIPT has dropped anchor in Dublin, and PokerStars is pulling all the shots to make the tour's return spectacular.
The 2022 UKIPT Dublin schedule is brimming with tournaments and satellites, with two events standing out from the crowd. May 18 sees the €2,200 buy-in High Roller shuffle up and deal. German superstar Dominik Nitsche triumphed in this event when it ran back in 2016. Nitsche topped a star-studded field of 416 entrants and banked €156,160 after defeating Tom Hall heads-up.
Past UKIPT Dublin Champions
Of course, the tournament everyone is waiting for is the €1,100 UKIPT Dublin Main Event. The first of three starting flights kicks off on May 19 with the champion crowned on May 22.
Lithuanian Vladas Tamasauskas is the long-reigning champion with him having outlasted 1,001 opponents in the Main Event in 2016. Tamasauskas returned home with €176,900 that day, a prize only surpassed by the €188,157 he collected for a runner-up finish in the 2016 Eureka Main Event a few months after his Dublin victory.
