Win UKIPT Season 3 Seats for Free!

UKIPT Season 3In preparation of its forthcoming third season of the UK and Ireland Poker Tour, PokerStars have launched a monthly UKIPT League which offers cash prizes and UKIPT Main Event packages, and which can entered for free!

The UK and Ireland Poker Tour has been a huge success since Padraig Parkinson collected €125,000 for winning the first Main Event in Galway in December 2009, and Season 3 – the schedule for which should be announced any day soon – is intended to be bigger and better than ever before.

Exclusive to UK and Ireland Online Poker Players

The UKIPT League is exclusively available to online poker players living in the UK and Ireland and each month will award one UKIPT package to include Main Event entry, accommodation and some spending money, a second UKIPT Main Event seat, more than £1,700.00 in cash prizes and £750.00 in UKIPT satellite qualifier tickets. The league offers a fantastic way to boost your bankroll and play in one of the most prestigious live poker tournaments in the UK.

How to Win Free Seats to UKIPT Season 3

Each night two tournaments are played on PokerStars. The first, at 7.00pm (GMT) is the Division 2 freeroll, with the second – at 7.30pm (GMT) – a Division 1 tournament with a £1.10 buy-in. Points are awarded depending on the finishing position of each player (you even get a point for taking part), and those points are added to your existing tally to create your league position. Please note that the two divisions are run separately, so points won in a freeroll tournament will not be added to those you already have in Division 1!

Prizes Every Month for 200 Players

Each month the top 100 players in each division will win a prize. It is possible to win prizes in both divisions during the same month and the leader of each division also wins a cash prize in addition to their UKIPT seat.

Where to Find the UKIPT League Tournaments

The best way to find the UKIPT League tournaments is to click on the “Tourney” tab at the top of the Lobby, and then onto “Regional”. If you are logged in to your PokerStars account, you should see a selection of games which you are qualified to play in due to your regional location (online poker players from outside of the UK and Ireland will not have access to these games).  Click on the tournament you wish to play in and we look forward to meeting you at one of the UKIPT Main Events in Season 3!
