UKIPT announces Season 3's first stops

ukiptthumb.JPGSo, it appears the UK & Ireland Poker Tour has a hit on its hand. What might have just been another regional tour has turned into a verifiable phenomenon. Season 2 of the tour broke records at every turn. So now, as we prepare to close 2011, the UKIPT is already making plans for its third season.

This week, the UKIPT announced four of the events for the next season. The tour looks to return to four popular stops from Season 2. The announcement confirms the UKIPT will be going back to Galway, Nottingham, Dublin, and Newcastle.

We've just taken a look at the schedule. Here are the first four announced events of Season 3.

  • Galway, Ireland (February 16 - 20)
  • Nottingham, England (April 12 - 16)
  • Dublin, Ireland (May 17 - 21)
  • Newcastle, England (September 6 - 10)

    What's important to remember about the UKIPT is that it gives you a big-buy-in tournament atmosphere for a fraction of the big tour costs. When it comes to the UKIPT buy-ins, you only need to remember the number 770. All events schedule so far in Ireland are €770. All events in England are £770. Pretty easy, eh?

    Feel certain that the UKIPT will be announcing more dates in the coming months. For now, you can brush up on all you need to know by visiting
