Read More: A Look Back at the PokerStars UKIPT
UKIPT Season 1
The very first UKIPT Main Event was won by Irish poker legend Padraig Parkinson who won UKIPT Galway. It was also the season that several up and coming British players took top honours including Max Silver and David Vamplew.
|Galway||259||Padraig Parkinson||€ 125,000|
|Nottingham||650||Andrew Couldridge||€ 80,000|
|Killarney||253||Femi Fakinle||€ 63,400|
|Edinburgh||401||Nicholas Abou Risk||£50,000|
|Dublin||589||Max Silver||€ 72,000|
UKIPT Season 2
Nick Abou-Risk and Joeri Zandvliet both became two-time UKIPT champions as soon as the second season. It was also the first time a UKIPT Main Event attracted over 1,000 runners.
|Galway||266||Nicholas Abou Risk||€ 67,100|
|Cork||602||Sam Razavi||€ 71,000|
|Dublin||718||Joeri Zandvliet||€ 83,500|
UKIPT Season 3
The buy-ins on the UKIPT had previously remained around £/€550, but for Season 3 these were increased to £/€770. This boosted the prize pools further, with Robert Baguley's £210,400 first prize a record for UKIPT Main Events (excluding EPT Main Events serving as UKIPT Grand Finals).
|Galway||698||Emmett Mullin||€ 100,000|
|Dublin||597||Richard Evans||€ 75,500|
|Cork||387||Thomas Finneran||€ 55,440|
UKIPT Season 4
For Season 4, the UKIPT buy-ins increased further to 1,100. The tour also launched in Spain as Ludovic Geilich won UKIPT Marbella for the first major title of a glittering career.
Duncan McLellan would bag two UKIPT titles in a single season - Douglas and Nottingham - to become the third two-time UKIPT champion.
|Marbella||763||Ludovic Geilich||€ 130,000|
|Galway||860||Alan Gold||€ 187,494|
|Dublin||682||Kevin Killeen||€ 87,700|
|Málaga||750||Rodrigo Espinosa||€ 136,000|
UKIPT Season 5
By the fifth season, the tournament was generating some huge prize pools. UKIPT Nottingham came with a £1,000,000 guarantee, and although it narrowly missed it, that didn't stop Sam-Mitten Laurence scooping a cool £182,000.
|Edinburgh||377||David Gomez Morante||£49,660|
UKIPT Season 6
In the sixth UKIPT season, there were four stops with the popular Marbella stop attracting another bumper field of over 800 players. At the time, it was thought that Ted Jackson-Spivack would go down in history as the last player to win a UKIPT Main Event in Birmingham, with PokerStars rebranding the UKIPT as the PokerStars Festival.
2022 UKIPT Season
In 2021 it was announced that the brand would return with stops in London, Dublin and Malta.

The season was full of big-name winners, with Niall Farrell and former WSOP Main Event winner Martin Jacobson marking the UKIPT's return in style.
