Last Chance to … A brief round-up of the events in the world of online poker that you might miss if you blink in the next 10 days or so.

Last chance to “Be the Best Brit”. are currently running a promotion in which UK based players can win a $35K double package to the WSOP in Vegas and WSOPE in Cannes. Free seats for the Cannes qualifiers are available to UK poker players who finish in the top 27 of their Vegas finals, and there are only two left – 4th June and 18th June.

Last chance to Qualify for UKIPT Newcastle. The UK and Ireland Poker Tour moves onto Newcastle from June 16th to June 20th, and a handful of Main Event packages are still up for grabs on PokerStars. You can qualify for their weekly (£108.50 buy-in) finals from just £1.10 – Wy-Aye Canny Lad!

Last chance to sing “Goodbye Mr Slippy, Farewell Less than Fair”. It can only be a question of time until “U be.conned” and “Absolute Plonker” close their virtual doors for the last time – and good riddance! What did Annie Duke and Phil Hellmuth really know when they “independently” jumped ship last year?

Last chance to reload your 888 account. Well, probably not your “last chance” per se, but their current 100% reload bonus offer plus entry to a $1,000 freeroll the next day expires on 31st May. A good site if you have never played on it, and one which was growing in popularity even before the “Black Friday” outrage.

Last chance to Win the Shirt off Messi´s Back. A nice topical promotion with the Champions League final on Saturday. Paddy Power Poker are hosting a freeroll on Friday night in which you can win Lionel Messi´s Champions League shirt (probably not the one he wears on the night) and 20 free bets on the match. Suerte!

Last chance to qualify for GUKPT Bolton – The Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Summer Series is well under way and the next stop is Bolton from 8th June. Main Event qualifiers are still running on Grosvenor Casino, starting at freeroll level up to a weekly £100.00 buy-in final. Two seats guaranteed in each final and only two finals left to go!

Don´t Miss! Sky Poker kept this very quiet, but their first depositor´s bonus is now a stunning 100% match up to £1,000 (That´s $1,630 for any yanks who have emigrated back to Blighty!). You also get a free £10.00 tournament token when you register an account, which you could use to qualify for the Sky Poker Tour – the next leg of which takes place in Cardiff on July 23rd.

And finally. . .

First Chance to Qualify for DTD GP IV. The Dusk til Dawn online qualifiers for the €250.000 Grand prix IV in August start on Monday (May 30th) with the first three hundred qualifiers receiving a Golden Chip. The chip will be converted into a Mini Clubman if you finish on the final table! Just €2.20 to buy-in!
