UKIPT Series London +1

I recently qualified to this event through a PokerStars freeroll, and a few of you have been asking for details... So here's what I know so far...

Day 1A starts this Friday, 28 June at 2pm UK time and runs for 8 hours. Day 1B starts Saturday, 29 June at 2pm UK time and also runs for 8 hours... all the remaining players from day 1A & 1B go through to day 2, which starts at 2pm Sunday 30 June, and runs until it ends.

Each day 1 has a 200 player max - and the buy-in is £250+£25 entry fee, so the total prize pool will be £100,000.

When this event ran 3 months ago, around 70 players made it through to day 2. I am unsure how many places are paid, but I guess it will be around 60 with prizes ranging from ~£300 - ~£20,000.

The blinds start at 25/50 and go up every 30 minutes. The starting stack is 20,000 - so there's a lot of room for play, and no need to take any silly risks.

There will likely be a fair few pros in the field, but probably none that anyone has heard of... as they will all be at the WSOP by now Smile

That's about all I know right now - I'll let you know anything else as I find it out, and I'll use this thread to update progress when I'm playing.

Anyone close to Leicester Square, feel free to drop by and say Hi Smile

Needless to say, if I do well - there'll be a BRM celebration freeroll hosted by me...


Oh, and because I won this seat through a TALKsport freeroll, and not a PokerStars freeroll, I am responsible for my own travel and accommodation (which is a bit of a bitch) - so I'm trying to see if I can get some money out of the lovely folk at PokerStars to help me out there. Not sure how much luck I'll have there, but it's worth a try at least. I'll let you know how that went when I get a reply. I emailed them yesterday, and I haven't heard back from them yet - which I'm taking as a good sign (they didn't just straight away say NO)

....Stay tuned for more updates.

*Day 2 actually starts at Midday, not 2pm.

Also just read that the winner gets entry into the UKIPT Grand Final, where you can win a 2014 UKIPT Pass - which lets you play all the UKIPT events next year for free... would be a pretty cool bonus on top of the £20k Smile


...and thanks teddy! I really hope I do get interviewed, because it will likely mean I've made the final table - and I'll be sure to mention BRM Smile ....Shame I don't have a BRM cap, or t-shirt I could wear. Oh well....

yout well done on winning the freeroll I take it was the last one of the series? I missed that one unfortunately!

There may be a slight possibility I can get down there so may come to give you support. failing that I will be looking at the live feed/updates perhaps you can PM your name so I can look out for you. If I lived closer to the venue I'd offer to put you up.

Anyway good luck hope you can get a big score!

Cheers stimp - maybe see you down there then...

It was the last one, yeah... There were 14 (I think) altogether.... I played every one - and not once got put on the bounty's table. I made the final table 3 times, finishing 7th and 3rd before taking it down at the last attempt...


I don't mind people knowing my real name (as I'll be famous soon anyway Tongue), so I'll post it here so anyone who wants to can keep track of how I'm doing...

My name's Richard Tranter - but if you do stop by, still call me Yout (pronounced yoot), as that's what all my mates call me anyway... and I don't answer to Rich/Richard/Richy or any other alternative Smile

I just saw your other post and this will be your first live event. If you can would be worth entering a tourney tonight or wednesday at a local casino. I see Rubicon in Wolverampton has nightly tourneys if that is anywhere near you?

First time I played, live play took some getting used to.

Its not a problem at all you'll be fine but it wouldn't hurt to have a little experience beforehand if possible.

The Rubicon is about 2 miles from my house - and I have played a few tournaments in there before... I've played quite a lot of live poker, but never an "official event" - that was the point I wanted to get across.

Day 1A kicked off about 15 minutes ago... just less than 24 hours until my start time - exciting stuff Smile


If anyone can find any up to date commentary/description/coverage on this - please do let me know - I've had a very quick look around, and can't see anything.

You can follow the action here:

I'll be leaving for London in around 25 minutes.... I'll try to update as often as I can - I think there's a 20 minute break every 2 hours, so I'll let everyone know how it's going if I can.

Just over 9 hours till I get started now...

Just got back home... Exhausted barely begins to explain how i feel, so I'm off to bed. I'll create a new thread all about the experience, with level by level, hand by hand detail once I've had a massive amount of sleep.
