UKIPT Season 2 qualifiers up and running

UKIPT Season 2 qualifiers up and running

Wednesday, 20 October 2010

The PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) is back for a very welcome second season with the action getting under way in Galway from 2nd to 5th December.

The €1,000+€100 Main Event is part of the four-day Irish Poker Championship and features a guaranteed prize pool of €250,000. Qualifiers are up and running at PokerStars including a number of freerolls as well as satellites starting from just $5.50. At least seven packages will be given away every week with each one including the tournament buy in plus accommodation and expenses.

The man crowned Best Poker Personality (as well as Best Blogger) at the Irish Poker Awards, Padraig Parkinson, made it a home victory in last year's UKIPT Galway event. The TV regular outlasted a field of 258 players to pocket a first prize of €125,000.

If you fancy following in Parkinson's footsteps sign up for an account at PokerStars.
