They’re fantastic events and I love being part of them.”O’Donnell continued: “We’re kicking off in Bristol this year and as it’s one of the best card rooms in the country and is packed out every night, we’re expecting it’ll be a sell-out. We’re keeping the £500 main event as we know that’s what the players really like about the tour. We’re really looking forward to getting the 2010 events underway and seeing all the familiar faces and friends soon.”2010 CBMPT champion and sponsored Coral.co.uk player, Mark Trett, said: “It’s fantastic to have another professional poker tour in the UK where you can play for five figure sums and be part of a European ranking event. It’s a great platform for the good local players to dip their toe in and mix with the big boys. I’ll be attending all of the main events and as many of the side events as possible.”The full schedule is as follows:• Bristol – Gala Harbourside Casino: 07 to 09 May• Leeds – Gala Casino Leeds: 11 to 13 June• Liverpool – Gala Leo Casino: 09 to 11 July• Nottingham – Gala Casino, Maid Marion Way: 30 July to 01 August• Stockton-on-Tees – Gala Casino Teesside: 10 to 12 September• Edinburgh – Gala Maybury Casino: 29 to 31 October Players can qualify for all events online by visiting Coral Poker.
