The PokerStars sponsored UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) has already featured events from Ireland and England and now the Scots are getting in on the act with an event in Edinburgh.
The Corn Exchange will be the venue for the four-day UKIPT Edinburgh event from 19th to 22nd August 2010, happily coinciding with the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Buy in for the Main Event is £500+£50 with a number of side events also pencilled in.The UKIPT has also announced a change of buy in for the Dublin leg of the tour. After receiving feedback from players they have decided to reduce entry to €500+€60. This won't affect the guaranteed prize pool though which still stands at a very healthy €250,000. UKIPT Tour Host Nick Wealthall said, “We’re thrilled that UKIPT Edinburgh will take place during the Fringe Festival, a world-famous event which brings out the best in this vibrant city. The Corn Exchange is one of the major Fringe venues, and we’re confident that Edinburgh’s first ever major poker tournament will add to the Festival’s incredible atmosphere."We’re very pleased with how Season 1 has gone so far, but the rest of the season has a lot to offer; with two higher buy-in events, guaranteed €250,000 prize pools at Killarney and Dublin, as well as an EPT London seat added to each UKIPT event, the PokerStars.com UKIPT really will be bringing the best of live poker to the UK & Ireland this summer.”The next leg of the tour starts later this week in Killarney before heading to the Rendezvous Casino in Brighton from 15th to 19th July. Qualifiers for the Brighton UKIPT event are available at PokerStars.
