UKIPT Leg at Dusk Till Dawn in April

on 2015-01-28, 22:41
Pokerstars worst kept secret - although they have still to announce the full season UKIPT programme, after London the UKIPT will hosts the £1,000,000 Guaranteed UKIPT Main Event at the world famous Dusk Till Dawn Poker Club.

Action takes place from April 13-20, 2015.

More news as it is announced. Although they also haven't announced it, there will be another "UKIPT" event in June in .... Marbella.

Hopefully they will find the time to fit some more "UK" or "Ireland" legs in before the end of the year.

Satellites to UKIPT Nottingham are running now on PokerStars. Find them in the lobby under: Live Events>Europe>UKIPT Nottingham.

Which part of the UK or Ireland is Marbella in, is it anywhere near Blackpool?

Near enough. Like Blackpool without the candy floss.

They did the same last year - basically hijacked a leg of the Spanish "Estrellas Poker Tour" and sold it as an away leg of UKIPT.

They also thought it would be an idea to run the Galway leg with a massive guarantee at the same time as the Galway Racing Festival was on when hotel rooms are in short supply and prices are at a premium. Result: big overlay. The races have been around longer than Pokerstars.

When the UKIPT tour started it actually was a tour, with events in Cork, Galway, Dublin in Ireland, and the likes of Newcastle and Bristol Harbourside on the roster. Now it seems that if it isn't in London (Hippodrome, Aspers Stratford) or Dusk till Dawn they cant be bothered finding regional venues. Shame really, I used to like the odd visit to the old Gala in Bristol (now Rainbow). Obviously Grosvenor and Genting aren't going to help them out from a venues point of view as they have competing tours, but surely they could find an Alea or an Aspers or a Rainbow that is big enough. Or even a Broadway ..... Very Happy

When I used to run the pub, 2 of my best punters were ex-bookies. They went to the Galway race festival and stayed for about 2 weeks every year. Spent all day fishing, or at the track (I think some of them are evening races but not sure) and all night till the small hours in the pub. They used to stay at the same hotel every year and used to go to the track in a helicopter that picked them up from the hotel with a group of owners.

I never went but if I ever won the lottery I think a week there when the races are on would be on my bucket list.

I'm going over this year.

It runs from Monday 27th July till Sunday 2nd Aug. Will be there for the last 3 days and Friday is one of the evening meetings. Should be a blast.

Only staying about three miles from the course so a taxi will do, no helicopters Very Happy
