The UKIPT Heads For Sunny Spain On June 15 for Marbella Festival

UKIPT Marbella
Sharelines
  • Once again the UKIPT is combining with the Estrellas Poker Tour to create an action-packed, week-long festival of poker that runs from June 15-21.

It is not only Las Vegas, Nevada, where the tournament poker action is as hot as the weather. In the next few days, the latest leg of the PokerStars United Kingdom & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) kicks off in Marbella, Spain.

Once again the UKIPT is combining with the Estrellas Poker Tour (ESPT) to create an action-packed, week-long festival of poker than runs from June 15-21.

The busy tournament schedule features a number of different variants including the popular 'Win The Button,' nightly turbos, live satellites, pot-limit Omaha, a high roller, and the showpiece of the UKIPT Marbella festival: the €1,000+€100 buy-in Main Event.

When the inaugural UKIPT Marbella Main Event took place in June 2013, it marked the first time the tour had ventured outside of the UK & Ireland. It turned out to be a great decision by the UKIPT management team as that Main Event attracted 763 players. Those hopefuls were all outlasted by Scottish grinder Ludovic Geilich, who walked away with the title of champion, the trophy, and €130,000 after a three-way deal.

Twelve months later, 720 players turned out for the second instalment of the UKIPT Marbella Main Event.

British duo Sam Grafton and Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody reached the final table – finishing in ninth and eighth place respectively – while Spain’s Rodrigo Espinosa claimed victory after defeating Christian Bauer heads-up to scoop a cool €136,000.

Those of you who don’t want to immerse yourselves fully in the poker action will be delighted to learn that PokerStars is spreading a whole host of off-the-felt activities including karting, flyboarding, hoverboarding, water scooter, parasailing, wakeboarding, pedal boats, and an official party at Guey Marbella that takes place from 10:00 p.m. until late on June 20 (open bar for the first two hours) – what’s not to like about that?
