UKIPT Isle of Man

Isle of Man

For the second year running, the UK and Ireland’s biggest poker tour is off to the Isle of Man - the home of PokerStars! Join players from across the region, and some of Team PokerStars Pro’s most recognisable names, for another unmissable UKIPT event at the historic Villa Marina venue in Douglas.

The £350,000 guaranteed UKIPT Main Event will take place from October 2-6, 2014, and you can buy-in directly for £700 + £70.

Away from the poker, Douglas will also play host to a talent-rich PokerStars Isle of Man International Chess Tournament. The event takes place from October 4-12, and will feature some of the world’s best chess players, including the UK’s top Grandmaster, Michael Adams.

Located in the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man is a British Crown Dependency and has been the home of PokerStars since 2005. With a thriving poker scene, friendly locals, and a venue right on the sea front, UKIPT Isle of Man will be one of the most unforgettable stops on Season 4.
