The Aspers Newcastle Casino hosts the fifth leg of the PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) from Friday June 16 until Monday June 20, in what is certain to be one of the most atmospheric stops on the UKIPT.

Newcastle has a very active poker scene, and many of the locals will be attempting to keep the coveted title of UKIPT Champion on the Tyne as the tour visits the Newcastle for the first time.

Aspers Casino is located just off of Newcastle Upon Tyne city centre, with easy access from the A1 (secure parking for 250 cars) and nearby Prestwick Airport. The venue has recently been refurbished throughout and offers a full range of casino games (including some you may not have played before) and has doubled the size of the poker room to cope with the anticipated 400 players who will contest the UKIPT Newcastle Main Event.

UKIPT Newcastle Main Event Information: The main event is a 4 day tournament (5 days if you count 2 day 1 starting days) play commences at 2pm on day 2 the 18th of June and day 3 the 19th of June. Play resumes at 3pm on the final day which is the 20th June.

Live Satellite to UKIPT: At 8pm on Monday the 20th of June there is a £50 + £5  NL Freezeout Sat to the next pokerstars live event which is the UKIPT Brighton.

The Main Event is scheduled over the four days of the festival, and will have a £100.000 guaranteed prize pool. Buy-in for the feature tournament is £500.00 + £50.00 and online qualification will be available on PokerStars.co.uk throughout May and June with satellites starting at $2.22 or 111 frequent player points.

VIP players on PokerStars will also be able to buy-in using their tournament $s, and Aspers are likely to be running their own qualifiers during the run-up to the event.

The supporting schedule is yet to be announced, but should include six other events which will no doubt attract many of the PokerStars pros who are familiar faces at these events. The winner of the Main Event will also win a seat in the £5,250 EPT London season finale, so it is certain there will be some fierce competition over the felt at Aspers in June.
