UKIPT Edinburgh has confirmed details of the Edinburgh stop on the UK & Ireland Poker Tour which will take place in the Corn Exchange from August 19 to 22. The main event buy-in will be £500+50.

Elsewhere the buy-in for the Dublin main event in September has been reduced from €1,000 to €500+60. The guarantee for the Dublin event will remain at €250,000.

UKIPT host Nick Wealthall said, “We’re thrilled that UKIPT Edinburgh will take place during the Fringe Festival, a world-famous event which brings out the best in this vibrant city. The Corn Exchange is one of the major Fringe venues, and we’re confident that Edinburgh’s first ever major poker tournament will add to the Festival’s incredible atmosphere.

“We’re very pleased with how Season 1 has gone so far, but the rest of the season has a lot to offer; with two higher buy-in events, guaranteed €250,000 prize pools at Killarney and Dublin, as well as an EPT London seat added to each UKIPT event, the UKIPT really will be bringing the best of live poker to the UK & Ireland this summer.”

UKIPT Killarney is currently underway. Check back at for the result on Monday.

The last stop on the tour saw Andrew Couldridge pick up £80,000 for topping the 650-strong field in Nottingham.
