Ireland’s Robinson leads UKIPT final table
A huge turnout for the UK Ireland Poker Tour tournament in Nottingham England has dwindled down to the final 8 players who will take to the poker tables later today to fight it out for the championship. The £500 buy-in tournament will go down as the second largest poker tournament in the UK, with 650 total entrants –the only major poker tournament with a larger field was this past year’s EPT London event.

The next stop for the UKIPT will be in Killarny from June 24-27, and will feature a £1,000 buy-in tournament. You can quilify online at PokerStars for all UKIPT Events.
