UKIPT Cork starts today

Thursday, 14 February 2013

Nothing says love quite like sitting in a large room playing poker all day and that's how hundreds of romantics in Ireland will be spending St Valentine's Day as the PokerStars UKIPT hits Cork.

A big crowd is expected at the city's Rochestown Park Hotel for the opening flight of the €700+€70 Main Event which gets under way at noon. A second Day 1 will follow at the same time tomorrow. Players will start with stacks of 15,000 chips with a 60-minute clock.

There's plenty of side event action scheduled throughout the next few days including PLO, Turbo Deepstack and Turbo Bounty events as well as a €2,000+€150 High Roller that starts at 6pm on Saturday. A satellite to the High Roller takes place at 6pm on Friday. The full tournament line up can be found here.

Players will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Sam Razavi who took the title on the UKIPT's last visit to Cork in 2011.
