Yesterday the third season of PokerStars UK & Ireland Poker Tour kicked off with the UKIPT Galway festival and this year's main event buy-in has been increased to €700+€70, which might give the prize pool a nice boost.
The main event of last year attracted a field of 266 players from around the UK, Ireland and Europe and the winner was Ireland-based Canadian Nick Abou Risk who received a first prize of €67,100.
Day 1a starts at 12:00 local time today and Day 1b kicks off at the same time tomorrow. Apart from the main event, the highlight of the tournament will be the No Limit Hold'em High Roller event with a €2,000+€150 buy-in.
