Exciting New Stops for UKIPT Season 4

Fourth season of UK and Ireland Poker Tour gets Spanish holiday

It appears PokerStars has big plans for the upcoming season of it’s UKIPT. Kicking-off in June, the tour will go European with the first stop, Spain’s glamorous Casino Marbella on the Costa del Sol. Other new stops on the tour will include the Irish city of Galway, where PokerStars will build a special ‘poker village’ to host a two-week festival, which is scheduled to run during the same weeks as the infamous Galway Races in August. Festival highlights of the Galway event will include a one-week Cash Game Festival and the inaugural UK versus Ireland Heads-Up Championship, with the second week focusing on the Main Event.

Following on from that there will an event in London taking place at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden, followed by a stop-off in the Isle of Man. To finish, following the huge success of the recent Nottingham event, the UKIPT will be heading back to the Dusk Till Dawn poker club in December where the schedule will include the very first 6-Max Main Event in the history of the tour.

Along with the exciting new stops, the UKIPT is also adding £500,000 Main Event prize pool guarantees at every event, meaning that each Main Event winner will walk away with at least £100,000.

Speaking about the upcoming Season, UKIPT President, Kirsty Thompson said: “After three successful UKIPT seasons our challenge for Season 4 was to try and continue that success whilst offering fresh and new experiences for our players. PokerStars is in a unique position to marry two tours, and by taking the UKIPT on holiday to Marbella we are making the most of our far reaching poker network, and adding a £500k guarantee to each of the Main Events increases the excitement factor”.
