Players on the PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) will get to show off their prowess in both the online and live arena next month in a special £250,000 guaranteed event.

The online leg of the UKIPT is a two-day £700+£30 event at PokerStars starting at 4pm UK time on 14 and 15th October. Players will start with stacks of 10,000 chips with a 20-minute clock.

Play will be stopped when the field is down to eight with the finalists resuming battle at a live final table on Wednesday 7 November, just prior to the start of UKIPT Bristol. Aside from the prize pool, all players that make the final table will also receive a UKIPT Bristol package (including £700 + £70 tournament entry, hotel, and spending money) plus an additional £300 for travel costs.

A trio of side events are also scheduled for the online leg of the UKIPT, details of which can be seen below.

Side Event 1 - Heads-Up NLHE Monday, October 8 20:30 (UK Time) £200 + 15
