Five reasons (excuses?) to play the UKIPT Series in London this month

The last UKIPT Series event is coming up in London, so we decided to offer a selection of excuses reasons to play it.


1. Location

It's at the Hippodrome Central London, probably the best place to play poker in the capital with a truly stunning back drop to the poker room.

2. Convenience

The London Underground is expanding its night service to pass through Leicester Square station, directly beneath the Hippodrome. Getting there to register, or getting home fast, has never been easier.

3. Timing

Taking place two weeks before EPT Prague, it's a great way to warm up with some competitive poker before the last EPT festival kicks off.

4. Structure

The UKIPT Series is a £250+£25 single re-entry per flight event, with two flights, one on Friday November 18, and the other on Saturday November 19, both starting at 2pm. That means you have a total of four bullets available.

5. History

It's the last ever UKIPT Series event, your last chance to take advantage of all of the above, while winning big or at least being able to say "I was there!"

It all starts on Thursday November 17 through to Sunday November 20. You can find all the details of the UKIPT Series here.
