UKIPT Galway finally under way

UKIPT Galway finally under way

Friday, 3 December 2010

The terrible weather conditions may have delayed the start of proceedings but play has finally got under way at the opening leg of the new season of the PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour .

A field of around 240 are in situ at the Radisson Hotel in Galway including the likes of PokerStars pros Liv Boeree, Julian Thew and Jude Ainsworth , EPT London winner David Vamplew , TV regular Roy Brindley and Bluff Europe's very own Nicky Power .

All will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Padraig Parkinson who took last year's Galway event. The Irish Poker Personality of the Year pocketed €125,000 after outlasting a 258 runner field last year.

Join us over the next few days to see who takes the title.
