Starting with an away game in Spain, the UKIPT hooks up with the Estrellas Poker Tour in June before moving on to a two-week festival in Galway which will see a week long cash game festival and a UK Vs. Ireland heads up tournament – all wrapped around the city’s famous racing festival.

After a visit to the English capital the tour hits PokerStars home turf, the Isle of Man, for the first time then pops back across the Irish sea to Nottingham for the first six-max main event of the Tour.

Season III of the Tour is on its final lap with Cork, Ireland the penultimate event later this month and London, England hosting the grand final next month.
