UKIPT Manchester satellites are running on PokerStars.com right now! There are two types of UKIPT Manchester packages on offer. The first includes a seat to the tournaments as well as travel and accommodation expenses. The second package includes a tournament seat only. Both UKIPT Manchester satellites and super satellites are running at Pokerstars with the buy ins starting at under $10 which means you can qualify even if you only have a small bankroll. They are running two tournaments every day in which you can qualify for the £550 Manchester leg of UK and Ireland Poker tour. The closer it gets to the actual tournament date the more seats will that will be filled and as the tournament only has a 300 player cap if you plan to play you better qualify as soon as possible!
How To Qualify For UKIPT Manchester
There is one way and one way only to qualify for UKIPT Manchester online and that is via a satellite at Pokerstars.com. You can also buy into the tournaments directly at Pokerstars but we recommend you don’t do this as they will charge you in dollars, giving you a rubbishy exchange rate, meaning you end up paying about £20 more than you would if you bought in at the casino or over the phone. You also have to have Platinum status at Pokerstars to buy in online. The best way to qualify for UKIPT Manchester is to get yourself an account at Pokerstars and give their daily satellite tournaments a go. You can find them in the lobby under the tournaments tab and then the satellites tab. All UKIPT Manchester satellites are listed in purple and bold font.
The venue for UKIPT Manchester is the G Casino. It’s a pretty modern place and they do have a weekly tournament schedule already in place, this will be cancelled when the UKIPT comes to town but there should be plenty of side action in the form of cash games and sit and go tournaments once the main UKIPT is underway. The G casino is open 24 hours a day and if you’re not already a member you may well need some ID to sign up with. There are a couple of bars including a late bar which we’re sure will be popular during UKIPT Manchester! The G Casino does only have room for 300 players making it one of the smallest legs of the UK and Ireland Poker Tour. As a result of this seats won’t be available forever so get online to qualify or buy in over the phone as soon as possible if you are actually planning to play the £550 event.
