Regular Poker Tournaments in Glasgow

There are many poker tournaments in Glasgow, with some internationally-recognised events that take place in the city throughout the year.

Perhaps the most obvious tournament that takes place in the city is the Scottish Poker Open. This £2,500+£250 buy-in event usually has a minimum prize pool of £1million up for grabs. Players have a starting stack of 15,000 chips, with a sixty-minute time-limit to ensure non-stop action. Perhaps the most memorable part of this tournament is the way in which players arrive; a luxury yacht and limousine is the only way to arrive at this event!

Poker tournaments in Glasgow are not only limited to the Scottish Poker Open however. The World Series of Poker Europe also has a place in the Scottish city. Indeed, the Alea Glasgow Casino regularly hosts entry events into the WSOPE from the venue. Many British players have found their way into the WSOP by playing these entry level events at the Alea, and continue to do so each and every year.

While Glasgow is home to several casinos that all host their own tournaments, another key event on the poker calendar is the Glasgow Masters Poker Festival. This popular poker tournament in Glasgow is hosted on the Gala Riverboat Casino, which overlooks the river and the local nightlife. Buy-ins to the numerous events in this tournament range from £25 to £300, depending on the event in question. Scotland is continually seeing a heightened interest in poker; tournaments in Glasgow are no different, and you can bet your bottom dollar that even more tournaments will be hosted in this cultural city in the years to come.
