UKIPT Birmingham


Join us in Birmingham for the last ever chance to win a UKIPT title before the tour becomes part of the PokerStars Festival - an exciting new live poker tour from our sponsors PokerStars. The UKIPT’s swansong takes place at the Genting Club Star City in Birmingham from October 5-9 and promises to be one of the best stops in UKIPT history.

Featuring a £700+70 buy-in Main Event, as well as a wealth of tournaments to choose from - including the £2,000 + £200 High Roller and the £300 + £30 Birmingham Cup event - this is one UKIPT you don’t want to miss.

To mark the occasion, we’ve also got plenty of off-the-felt action to enjoy. Genting’s Casino is located within the Star City Leisure complex, and you can choose from a 25-screen cinema, tenpin bowling alley, indoor rock climbing arena, mini golf course and more, including bars and restaurants located within the complex.
