The opening season of the PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) comes to a conclusion as part of EPT London next week but players won't have to wait long for season two to arrive.

Organisers have revealed details of season two of the UKIPT starting with a stop in Galway in December. There will be a total of 10 events with prize money expected to top the £2m mark. The full schedule is as follows:

Galway, Ireland:** Dec 2-5 - €1,000 + 100

UKIPT Host Nick Wealthall said, “The response from players to the first season was overwhelming and really exciting to be a part of. Season 2 promises to be even bigger, but we won’t lose what makes the tour special: great value, local character and the most fun you can have at a poker tournament.”

Plenty of PokerStars pros will be playing UKIPT season two events including EPT San Remo winner Liv Boeree. The new Team PokerStars pro said, “I can’t wait to play the UKIPT this year as a Team PokerStars Pro. The first stop in Galway is sure to have a stellar field and a huge prize pool, so it would be great to kick off the season with a win there!”

The Galway event will be a €1,000+€100 buy-in event with a guaranteed prize pool of €250,000. For more information and details of how to qualify visit
