PokerStars Gears Up for UKIPT Isle of Man Oct. 1

While PokerStars prepares for an entry into New Jersey perhaps as early as next month, preparations are also underway for the UKIPT Isle of Man that kicks off the 1st of October.

This will be the second such pilgrimage to the home of PokerStars for the UKIPT following its inaugural stop there last year. Fourteen events are scheduled from Oct. 1-6, culminating in the final table of the £770 UKIPT Main Event on the last day. Satellites for that Main Event are running now at PokerStars.

There will be more than poker for those who make the trek to the island inhabited by about 81,000 situated in the Irish Sea between Ireland and the UK. PokerStars will once again provide tours of their headquarters in addition to a free player party where a number of PokerStars Team Pros will be on hand.

The UKIPT Isle of Man tour stop takes place while PokerStars also plays host to the Isle of Man International Chess Tournament. That event runs from Oct. 4-12 and gives players another option of things to do when not competing on the felt.
