PokerStars UKIPT Season 2 Schedule

UKIPT Season 2Now that Season 1 of the PokerStars.com UK and Ireland Poker Tour has been completed, players can get ready and look ahead to Season 2 now that the full schedule has been released. Season 1 of the UKIPT proved a tremendous success and culminated in the UKIPT/EPT London Main Event where 848 players paid the £5,000 buy-in and Scotland’s David Vamplew won it for £900,000. Vamplew will also be back for Season 2 thanks to winning the Champions of Champions event which saw him and the 7 other Season 1 UKIPT winners battle it out for first-place to be awarded with a package covering their entry to all Season 2 UKIPT events, a package worth up to £50,000 so we will certainly be seeing a lot more of 23-year old David Vamplew.

Many of the best poker players are expected to make an appearance at UKIPT Galway for the first stop of Season 2 with new Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree already confirmed and she is expected to be joined by other Team UK and Ireland pro’s Vicky Coren, Julian Thew, Juda Ainsworth, JP Kelly and John Duthie.
