The UKIPT heads back to the seaside locale of Brighton again during its second season, giving poker fans a scenic destination with plenty of action at the tables and away from them, as well as a guaranteed £100,000 prizepool to shoot for.
The UKPIPT tour may be just a few seasons old but it’s quickly become a favorite with many players in the UK and Ireland (as well as players from elsewhere in the world), offering up very affordable buy-ins and stops at great destinations like Brighton. Players unable to afford the bigger buy-ins of EPT and WPT events still get to enjoy the excitement of a major live poker event, as well as a shot at a big payday.
UKIPT Brighton and other stop also feature a ton of online qualifiers via PokerStars, which can mean a very soft field and plenty of value for players. The smaller buy-in translates to more trip packages being available online, with lots of satellites running constantly at PokerStars.
Players have a choice at PokerStars of playing for full trip packages (which cover the cost of the tournament buy-in, accommodations, and travel expenses) as well as buy-in only satellites, which are ideal for local players just looking to cover the cost of the buy-in.
Brighton trip packages are up for grabs weekly in online finals, with smaller satellites feeding into the larger buy-in finals, which lets players of all bankrolls potentially play their way to trip.
