Half a Million Pound UKIPT 6-Max

Robbie Bull

It’s finally here as the poker grapevine starts to shake with the usual questions on just how good will the UKIPT’s massive £500k UKIPT 6-max tournament be.

There’s still just about enough time for players to qualify via satellites on PokerStars or just get into the field by pumping their cash in now fronting the £1,100 Main Event buy-in fee. There are three days to roll over the main event that should conjure up a $1 million plus prize pool by the time late registrations pull down the blinds and cut off any further entrees.

The city of Nottingham’s Dusk till Dawn poker room will be the venue for the card sharks to play in what will be an event set to stage 10 poker tournaments, and you can be sure to find plenty of cash side games going on in around the action. The centre of attention is the main event, which will be the first tournament to get the cards in the air with the whole affair starting tomorrow the 27th November 2013 and running through to the Christmas month of December where the UKIPT will exit the venue on the 2nd December 2013.

Other tournaments include the £2,200 High Roller and the £330 Notts Cup is set to give yet another winner the opportunity and honour becoming the Notts Cup holder! Throughout the event we’ll be watching pros such as Jake Cody, Liv Boeree and Vicky Coren from Team PokerStars plus a flurry of other well-known British and European players. Plus, who knows, the £500k prize pool guarantee may attract some other big stars from across the pond from the good ole USA.

There’s also a player party that will be getting the dance floor rocking and the alcohol flowing on Saturday the 30th November. Although be careful if you are playing in any of the final tournaments the next day, as you could be getting a double soar head when you bust out! At the party, players in the Dusk till Dawn venue will get the chance to rub shoulders with the stars and maybe get some tips and make some enquires into some of the talking points of the main event.
