Table Of Contents
Two more exciting festivals have been added to PokerStars' 2022 live portfolio with UKIPT Nottingham and EUREKA Bucharest confirmed for July. In addition to these series, PokerStars have confirmed 12 Road to PSPC tournaments where players have the chance to capture a PokerStars Players Championship Platinum Pass valued at an incredible $30,000.
UKIPT Nottingham Kicks Off July 23
The UKIPT returns to the home of British poker, Dusk Till Dawn, for the first time since 2015, from July 23 through July 31. A busy schedule of events include a £5,300 Super High Roller with £200,000 guaranteed, a £2,200 High Roller also with £200,000 guaranteed, and the £1,100 UKIPT Nottingham Main Event that boasts of a £500,000 guaranteed prize pool.
There are satellited awarding UKIPT Nottingham Main Event and expenses packages, worth £1,600, available in the PokerStars lobby from June 19 and remain available until July 24.
The last time the UKPT was held at Dusk Till Dawn, Sam Mitten-Laurence topped a field of 1,026 and walked away with £182,000 for his victory. With how attendances have been in British tournaments since the relaxation of COVID-19-related restrictions, it would not be surprising to see similar figures this time around.
EURKEA Bucharest Returns After Six-Year Hiatus
The ever-popular EUREKA Poker Tour returns to Bucharest, Romania for the first time since 2016 for seven days of high-octane poker action between July 25-31.
Among the many side events is the €1,100 Main Event, which Israel's Avishai Shitrit won in 2016 for €107,350.
Like the UKIPT Nottingham satellites, EUREKA Bucharest satellites appear in the PokerStars lobby from June 19 to July 24.
