£500,000 Sky Poker UK Poker Championships (UKPC) 2015


November 21, 2014

Sky Poker have announced their biggest ever live tournament, the £500,000 Sky Poker UK Poker Championships. The UKPC will run from Wednesday 25th February to Sunday 1st March 2015. Prizes are guaranteed at half a million pounds. Coverage of the Sky Poker UK Poker Championships Final game will be on Sky Sports.

£500,000 Sky Poker UK Poker Championships February 2015, satellites running nowFebruary next year may sound a long way off but  freerolls and satellites are running now.  Freerolls (if you’ve earned 5 poker points in last 24hrs) run every evening at 7pm or 7.15pm. You can also qualify for as little as £1.15 with the low cost satellites to the various events, see table below.

The February 2015 Sky Poker UKPC will be held at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham.  Only tourney seats are on offer so all other costs are down to the players.

The only way to get a seat for the Sky Poker UK Poker Championships Main Event direct is to buy-in at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham, at a cost of £1,000, or go on the Sky Poker site and win your way there via the many freerolls and satellites.

You can play the freerolls and satellites as much as you like but you can only win a maximum of one Sky Poker UKPC Main Event seat. If you have the idea that freerolls and satellite winners rarely make it to the final table, you may be surprised to learn that in the final game in this tourney earlier this year; Deborah O’Connell came 7th and won $16,000 all from £1 online and Allan Graham won 8th place and £12,500, he qualified via Sky Poker for just £2.80.

One Sky Poker UK Poker Championship Main Event seat will be awarded for every 5 players who participate in the £500k UKPC Final satellite tournament (Sunday’s at 9.15pm). The schedule for the UKPC in Nottingham is yet to be announced, Sky Poker say – ‘We will announce a full event schedule in due course’.

These games are open to all Sky Poker players and it’s worth mentioning that new players at Sky Poker get a no deposit bonus worth £10 and on their first deposit will get a 200% match bonus worth up to £500.

UKPC Satellite Routes – Play Monday to Saturday or Sunday, so all week – yippee.

Please note for the freeroll – If you have earned 5 Poker Points in the last 24 hours you can register.
