The UKIPT Super Series returns to London's Hippodrome
We've said this before but there's no harm in saying it again: the Hippodrome Casino in central London is a great place to play cards.
It's not just the quality of the poker room, complete with plush interior and top class dealers, it's the place itself - a former theatre where your celebration or commiseration drink at the bar takes place against a backdrop as dramatic as the West End shows that used to pack the place to the rafters.
It's why we like to keep the PokerStars Live room busy, and next week is no exception, with another UKIPT Super Series homepage event, starting on Wednesday.
Running from Wednesday to Sunday (14 to 18 October), the UKIPT Super Series features a £500 + £50 Main Event, as well as a £1,500 + £150 High Roller. Not only that we're introducing a Women's Event for the first time ever at a UKIPT Series event, with a £150 + £15 buy-in. Some might say that's a small addition, but some of us prefer to take that to mean there's a small place in the history books up for grabs.
If previous events are anything to go by Series events are a perfect place to play competitive poker, in a great poker room, for some great prizes. What's more the Main event has three flights. If it doesn't go well the first time you can play the second one (and the third if necessary), with players allowed to enter up to three times.
And if you'd rather go a slightly more affordable route there are satellites running on PokerStars, starting at as little as £1, details of which you can find in the PokerStars lobby.
It all takes place in the middle London in the Hippodrome in Leicester Square. Take the weekend to think about it but be ready for Wednesday. Find all the details you could possibly need on the UKIPT Super Series homepage. And if you need a PokerStars account to enter some of those satellites, you can sign up for one here.
