Sky Poker has announced that it will be hosting the first UK Poker Championships in 2014 at the Dusk Till Dawn poker club in Nottingham. The series will take place across seven days and include six events, all of which will be covered on Sky Sports.
The highlight of the series promises to be the £1000+£100 Main Event which has a £500,000 guaranteed prize pool. Those who think that the buy in is a bit steep need not worry as Sky Poker will be hosting a number of affordable satellites nearer the time.
High Rollers will be pleased to hear that there is a £3000+£150 High Roller, the event should ensure that the UK’s top professionals, and a number of major European players, will make the effort to travel to Nottingham and take part in the series.
The Head of Sky Poker, Richard Milner, said, “Everyone at Sky Poker is really excited about the UK Poker Championships. It will be the biggest live event we have ever had and comes hot on the heels of another successful season of the Sky Poker Tour (SPT).”
