UKIPT set to host annual home game on Isle of Man

It's no secret that PokerStars calls the Isle of Man its home, and now it's time to play PokerStars' grandest home game of the year. The people of PokerStars are welcoming all comers to the Isle of Man October 1-4 for the UK & Ireland Poker Tour's stop.

Situated along the Irish Sea coast and just down the road from PokerStars HQ, the UKIPT's Isle of Man stop is hosted in the beautiful and historic Villa Marina. The £440 buy-in event has two flights, and you can re-enter once per day, so you have a chance to fire four bullets if you need to!

For the next two Sundays, you can win seats online. PokerStars is running a five-seat guarantee satellite with a £100 buy-in this Sunday the 20th and next Sunday the 27th.

The UKIPT already has seats reserved for Liv Boeree, Chris Moneymaker, Jake Cody, and Jen Shahade, the latter of which will undoubtedly be a popular face at the Isle of Man International Chess Tournament and combined poker and chess event.

As if that wasn't all enough, every player in the Main Event will get a Manx National Heritage pass to explore all the heritage sites on the island for free.
