The grand final will be none other than the 2010 EPT London in October

Pokerstars launch UK and Ireland Poker Tour

(UK).- Pokerstars has unveiled details on their UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT). It was in the pipeline after it was announced they were sponsoring the Irish Poker Championships in Galway, and now the rest of the tour has been unveiled.


he tour will go to Ireland, England and Scotland staring in December and running throughout 2010.

Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham is one of the key venues, as are the G Casinos in Coventry and Manchester. The grand final will be none other than the 2010 EPT London in October.

One of the things that immediately sticks out is the buy-in, as this looks set to be one of the more affordable tours in the UK with buy-ins as low as us$ 822 + us$ 82.2 in some festivals. This no doubt is a reaction to just how well these mid stake events are doing on the UK circuit, but there are also higher buy-in events between us$ 1,644 and us$ 2,944, as well as of course the us$ 8,224 EPT main event.

Perhaps some high profile 'High Roller' events might be seen in the tour, as has been the case in some of Pokerstars other localised poker tours. There will also be a leader board for the tour, with the overall point's winner getting a package into EPT London as well as packages for all of season 2.
