Even though it is not long after the UK Students Poker Championship took place in Coventry, it seems as though there are more events for UK students to get involved with. Far be it from us to suggest that these students would be better off spending their time studying for upcoming exams but we hope that one or two students are not neglecting their studies. If the current crop are the doctors, dentists and lawyers of the future, we may be in for a rough ride. You may not have a doctor that is capable of taking out kidney stones but they will all know a great deal about poker, which isn’t a completely bad thing.
The online league for UKSPC, the UK Student Poker championship has begun in earnest and in total there will be 12 weeks of poker action to look forward to. The event started on the 7th of April and there looks set to be 12 weeks of poker action before there is a break for the summer. So, in effect, this league is running while the students are meant to be studying and will be unavailable during their free time! Hopefully some of the young poker players will be able to earn some poker winnings to enjoy some travelling when it comes to making the most of their summer break. There will be a further 12 week session of online poker action after the break continues.
Play poker to win and get the rewards
The fact that the UKSPC is now aligned with the GUKPT, there are some interesting prizes on store. It is always good to take on your peers and earn the respect and kudos that go along with beating them but when it comes to poker, money is always going to be a big factor. There is a great incentive for players in the UKSPC because the winner will receive a seat at the GUKPT Grand Final, which has a value of £2,000. They will also receive a trophy to commemorate their success.
Other prizes on offer include buy-ins to major GUKPT events and to the UKPC High Roller events too. There is set to be a number of different poker games and disciplines available in the tournament so there should be something for everyone. Anyone looking to prove their poker skills while studying would be advised to see what the UKSPC has to offer.
