MainEventTravel.com announces new partnership with Redtooth Poker

By Marcel Luske

MainEventTravel.com and Redtooth Poker Tour (RPT) are joining forces, with a unique deal for players competing at official stops for their popular pub poker league around the UK and overseas.

The tour officially kicks off in July with – for the first time ever – a series of tournaments being held during The Goliath at The Ricoh Arena, a sensational event attracting thousands of players from all over the world. The €25,000 guarantee, £75 + £12 buy-in “The Big One” is on July 29 and on Sunday there’s a £30 + £8 buy-in Win the Button tournament. The first of eight dealer-dealt legs is also taking place at The Goliath, with the £60 + £12 RPT Tag Team event on July 30.

 

Following those season-openers at The Goliath, the RPT heads off around the UK with a series of stops at Grosvenor Casinos all over the country, as well as a September stop in Malta.

 

As the Redtooth Poker Tour’s Official Travel Partner, MainEventTravel will be providing players with a one-stop shop for tournament buy-ins and accommodation. Buy-ins for all Redtooth Poker Tour events are only available in advance, through MainEventTravel, and all entrants must have played at least four games in the Redtooth pub poker league in the previous 12 months.

 

Tickets go on sale today (March 31) and we ‘d like to remind players that all the RPT events have a cap – so it’s first come, first served!! As an added bonus for players who want to bag their hotel accommodation at the same time, MainEventTravel.com will also be waiving all booking fees for those who book a combined seat+hotel package.

 

This year’s Redtooth Poker Tour will not only be awarding £36,000 in cash prizes but also taking the top players on the tour leaderboard on an amazing trip to Las Vegas next summer to compete in the Redtooth Vegas100 event. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will also include 100 players who have triumphed in Redtooth’s 12-month search for the best pub poker players in the country.

 

Over 1,000 pubs take part in the Redtooth Poker league which first started ten years ago. Following the three RPT events during The Goliath, the tour will head to Bournemouth in August, followed by a fantastic event at Casino Malta from September 15-18. The remaining stops are Dundee, Liverpool and Nottingham this year plus Cardiff in January 2018 and London next February. 

 

MainEventTravel.com Managing Director Fraser MacIntyre said: “We are delighted to be joining forces with Redtooth Poker Tour for its 2017/2018 season. This unique tour provides excitement and great prizes for pub poker players all over the country and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.

 

“The new partnership will make it incredibly convenient for eligible players who, for the first time, will be able to buy their ticket for events along with their hotel accommodation, all at the same time. We look forward to providing a fantastic travel service for more than a thousand Redtooth competitors from all over the country.”
