Much Promise for Live Poker events in the UK in 2019

Live poker tournaments have taken off in the UK in a big way over the last couple of years and it’s fair to say that 2019 is going to be bigger and better than ever.

Increasingly, we are seeing the tournaments being held in venues outside of the big casinos of Manchester and London, with events like the WSOP UK Circuit in Nottingham, the Grosvenor Series touring the country with events in Leeds, Blackpool, Portsmouth and several other cities. Even Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are getting their fair share of events, which points to ripe health for the live poker industry.

If you’re based in the UK, one of the best events to check out is the Grosvenor Series. In total, there will be eight legs taking place throughout the year, all leading up to the Grand Final from 18th November to 1st December 2019 at the Grosvenor Casino, London. Grosvenor also run a series of 25/25 games around the country.

Goliath Series was huge success

Grosvenor Casinos are arguably leading the way in UK poker at the moment. The feedback for the 2018 Goliath Series in Coventry was widely positive, with a £125 buy-in giving the winner the opportunity to walk away with at least £100K.

The Goliath Series also had popular side competitions specifically focused on seniors and women. It was good for Grosvenor of course, but they really know how to put on a show. The Goliath Series will return to Coventry (Ricoh Arena) from 27th July – 4th August 2019. It’s really worth checking out.

Another date for your diary is the 20th January – 2nd February 2019, when the WSOP UK Circuit rolls into Nottingham. Across the two weeks there will be no less than 30 different events, including several exciting High Roller No Limit Hold’em tournaments. Each of those have a £2,000 buy-in.

In fact, Nottingham is probably the place to be for UK poker next year, as the Dusk Till Dawn Casino will play host to the WPT European Championships from 30th March -14th April.

Nottingham will also be the venue for the UK Poker Championships from the 17th-25th August.

Unibet Poker Tour big hit with Amateurs

For amateur players, it might be worth looking at the Unibet Poker Tour, which had a great reception across Brighton, Glasgow and Manchester in 2018.

Many of these poker operators like Unibet, 888, Grosvenor and Genting will also run competitions on their online casino and poker sites to gain free entry to the tournaments. You can check out this guide to no deposit mobile casino bonuses and see if any match up to the sponsor of your local poker festival, allowing you to perhaps grab a free buy-in or other special perks.

There will no doubt be plenty of other events added to the 2019 UK live poker schedule soon, but that’s a flavour of what is on offer. The best part about it all is that you can find some sort of event to suit your poker skill level and your wallet size.

Almost all the events listed above will have side events running alongside the bigger tournaments, so there will be something to get your teeth into when a poker festival comes along to your area.
