UK Poker Sites

Whilst compiling our list of UK poker sites we took many factors into consideration. for example: Lucky ace poker may offer the best deposit bonus online but lacks when it comes to player traffic and tournaments offered. It's difficult to know what is actually classed as a "UK Poker Site" and many peoples opinion vary. In the end I think we did a pretty good job of narrowing it down in a fair way that adds credibility the the below list.

G Casino Poker offer a $500 poker bonus and this is one of my favorite poker rooms, besides from that they also have excellent casino options.

GUKPT - The Grosvenor UK Poker Tour

The Grosvenor UK Poker Tour or GUKPT for short is the UK longest running and in our opinion best live events the Country has to offer. The schedule has expanded Year upon Year and now has added events such as the Summer Series which features a lower buy in of £500 for main events compared to £1000 for the main tour itself.

The venues are the many G Casino’s found in most locations so making arrangements to play a local poker event is always easy. Manchester, Luton, Walsall, London, Brighton, Blackpool, Bolton, Aberdeen are just a few of the stop on the tour.

The live action is superb and it’s a great chance for newer players or those who mostly play online to come face to face with some of the UK and Europe’s biggest poker names. You can win your seat to the GUKPT 2011 often referred to simply as the “UK Poker Tour” Online at G Casino

UKIPT - UK and Ireland Poker Tour

The UKIPT launched this Year has been a huge success and it’s no wonder when you consider the power behind it. The tour is brought to you by Pokerstars the largest poker site in the World, and one that deserves the recognition it gets from millions of players around the Globe.

The Pokerstars Live Events feature a Main Event of £500 for the majority which is half the price of Grosvenor Casinos offerings. What’s more is the quality of play, the UKIPT is a bit louder to say the least with a few players perhaps having a few too many shandies prossibly because they only ever play online, and are overexcited to be out of the house.

If we had to choose one not based on buy-in amount it would still be the GUKPT, but for a lower cost and a bit of prestige the UKIPT is right up just about every one’s street + both are excellent. You Can Qualify Online For Free at PokerStars.
