Sky Poker UK Poker Championships Returns with £1m GTD

The Sky Poker UK Poker Championships are returning Feb. 22-March 1, 2015, with the previous £500k guarantee bumped up to £1 million this year.

The entire tournament will take place at the Dusk Till Dawn poker club in Nottingham with numerous poker celebs set to attend.

The UKPC has been steadily building a solid following amongst poker pros with Sam Trickett, Tom Middleton and new Sky Poker Ambassador Neil Channing all among the many British pros who have played the tournament.

Satellites to the UKPC are already running in the Sky Poker lobby with a wide variety of buy-in levels priced from £1.15 to £220.

You can also buy in directly in-person at Dusk Till Dawn for £1,000.

After some experimentation with a 6-max format, the 2015 Sky Poker UK Championships will return to 9-handed play.

Last August Leigh Wiltshire outlasted 500 players to take down a £110,000 in the last edition of the UKPC. This year first place should pay out over £200,000 thanks to the impressive new guarantee.

In addition the upcoming edition of UKPC will offer a selection of side events including a £200 buy-in tournament, a £3,000 high roller and a £1,000 8-game tournament.
