UKIPT...leaving the UK? Yes, for Marbella

It is my solemn duty to report to you today that the UK & Ireland Poker Tour is leaving the UK. And Ireland, for that matter.

Let it sink in. Feel the loss. Embrace it. Done? Good. Because it's coming back soon. It just needs a holiday.

Yes, friends, it's time for the UKIPT to go on vacation to Marbella.


Once again, the UKIPT has joined forces to provide the sunniest European poker vacation you'll find. Running June 9-15, the week-long festival will offer a UKIPT/ESPT €500,000 guarantee Main Event, a €2,200 High Roller and the Marbella Poker Cup.

Alongside the big poker tournaments, there will be side events, parties, and a special football contest (for those living under a rock, the World Cup is starting soon) that will earn the winner a trip to EPT Barcelona. The contest will involve a special free-to-enter Flipout tournament.

Satellites for Marbella packages are running now on PokerStars.
