PokerStars UKIPT Nottingham & Eureka Bucharest Return in July. Two popular mid-stakes tours announce new stops, with major live poker events set to be played in Nottingham & Bucharest this summer. PokerStars live events have returned to their popular spots across Europe and the rest of the world, and the online poker powerhouse has announced two new stops for 2022.
In late July, PokerStars will be hosting the first edition of UKIPT Nottingham since 2015, while Eureka Poker Tour returns to Bucharest, a location that saw the festival play out only once, in 2016.
