UKIPT Nottingham – Key Events
At the moment, UKIPT players and fans are in Edinburgh for the tour’s penultimate stop of the year, with the series running until October 29. Just a week after that, the tour heads to Nottingham, with Dusk Till Dawn once again playing host to the action.
UKIPT Nottingham will bring down the curtain on the current season of the tour, and rightly so because it is among the most well-attended stops, popular for generating huge prize pools.
This year, UKIPT Nottingham brings with it nine days of top-notch action running from November 5-13, with the schedule headlined by the £1,100 Main Event which has a guarantee of £1 million. The tournament features five Day 1 flights, with Day 1E adopting a turbo structure. The starting flights take place from November 5-11, with Day 2 scheduled for November 12 and the winner crowned on November 13.
Dusk Till Dawn will be hosting £60 qualifiers for the Main Event, giving players the chance to enter the tournament for a much lower price. Additionally, they may qualify for the Main Event via a remote Day 1 which takes place at Hippodrome Casino in London on October 29 at 2:00 p.m. This remote flight follows the same structure as the Day 1 flights in Nottingham. Players advancing to Day 2 will take their stack with them to Nottingham as they resume the action on November 12.
Other key events on the UKIPT Nottingham schedule include the £3,200 UKIPT Super High Roller (November 8-9), £330 UKIPT Cup (November 12-13), £2,200 UKIPT High Roller (November 12-13) and £560 No-Limit Hold’em Mystery Bounty (November 13).
UKIPT Nottingham debuted in 2010, with the Main Event, then a £560 buy-in tournament, won by Andrew Couldridge for £80,000. The largest top prize so far was claimed by Robert Baguley when he took down the tournament in 2012 for £210,400. Other past Main Event winners include Gareth Walker (2011), Ben Mayhew (2013), Duncan McLellan (2014), and Sam Mitten-Laurence (2015).
The reigning UKIPT Nottingham Main Event champion is Adam Maxwell who captured the title in 2022 for £98,150.
