PokerStars UKIPT and EPT Schedule

by Poker Team

PokerStars is already the world’s largest online poker site, and has been for quite a long time now. Despite holding this distinction, the worldwide leader in poker is not content and just resting on their laurels. Not at all satisfied with their increasing market share, PokerStars has aggressively been continuing building their brand all over the world. Last week they unveiled their Latin American Poker Tour schedule. Little did everyone know that this was only the beginning in their ongoing quest for global domination. Within the past 48 hours, they have now introduced and released the dates for the UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) as well the latest season of the European Poker Tour (EPT). Their customers must now be salivating the prospects of being able to compete in satellite tournaments for the next several months in hopes of scoring entry to events in exotic destinations such as the Bahamas, England, and Germany.

With about 2 dozen tournaments scheduled, PokerStars customers are sure to rack up millions of frequent flyer miles as they look to strike it rich and become household names.
