Your Last Chance to Become a PokerStars UKIPT Champion in 2023 Starts Nov. 5

Another thrilling PokerStars United Kingdom and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) season concludes in November, meaning time is rapidly running out if you have becoming a UKIPT champion on your to-do list for 2023. The UKIPT is currently in Edinburgh until October 29, where PokerNews is reporting from the 1,100 Main Event, but has no time to rest because everything will be immediately packed up and driven to Dusk Till Dawn for the UKIPT Nottingham festival.

UKIPT Nottingham runs from November 5-13 at the home of British poker, Dusk Till Dawn. November 5 is traditionally Bonfire Night in the United Kingdom, and there will be plenty of fireworks in the East Midlands as the first of five 1,100 UKIPT Nottingham Main Event flights takes place from 12:00 p.m. By the way, the Main Event boasts a 1 million guarantee on its prize pool.

A brief hiatus follows before the remainder of the UKIPT Nottingham schedule kicks off at 5:00 p.m. UK time on November 8 with the 3,200 UKIPT Super High Roller.

The Main Event continues on November 9, and it is from here that PokerNews will provide industry-leading updates on the 1 million guaranteed tournament. The Main Event has five flights in total, with Day 1E featuring a 20-minute (instead of 40-minute) clock. Day 2 occurs on November 12, with the champion crowned on November 13.

There are several other tournaments for players to get their teeth into, including the 330 UKIPT Cup and a 2,200 UKIPT High Roller.

Past UKIPT Nottingham Champions

The UKIPT Nottingham Main Event has traditionally been one of the most popular stops of the UKIPT because it never fails to create large prize pools.

Andrew Couldridge walked away with 80,000 after taking down the inaugural UKIPT Nottingham Main Event in May 2010. Gareth Walker triumphed in 2011, and scooped 97,000 before Robert Baguley helped himself to a record-breaking 210,400 in 2012.

Two other UKIPT Nottingham Main Events have awarded a six-figure top prize. In 2014, Duncan McLellan left Nottingham with 202,372 for his efforts, while Sam Mitten-Laurence secured a 182,000 payout the following year.

Adam Maxwell is the reigning champion, having come out on top of a 582-strong crowd in July 2022. Maxwell padded his bankroll with 98,150.
