Poker is no Fringe act in Edinburgh

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is known all over the world and it virtually takes over the Scottish capital in August. So much so that many residents decide that this is the best time of year to get away from it all but for those that hang around, there is plenty to see and enjoy. The comedy element of the festival tends to take centre stage and top billing but there is much more to Edinburgh in August than just laughter but no matter what you like, there should be something that takes your fancy in the city.

Plenty of TV fun in Edinburgh

Poker fans may be thinking that there is not too much to grab their attention but that is certainly not the case. For one thing, the PokerStars UKIPT tour is stopping off in Edinburgh this month and that should provide poker fans with plenty of opportunities to indulge their favourite past-time if they are in the city. As the fringe attracts people of all backgrounds and interests to the city over the month, it is helpful to as many things going on as possible. The organisers of the UKIPT tour have definitely pulled a great move in scheduling this Scottish leg during this busy month.

Get all the poker gossip

There is even further poker news and action going on this month though and the Volcano City TV crew are going to be providing even more poker fun during the festival. The Festival Frank will be appearing at various points throughout the month and there will be many features and episodes that will be of interest to poker fans. The promise of live poker webcasting is definitely going to be of interest and should ensure that many people tune in. There will be shows hosted by UKIPT host Nick Wealthall so there is going to be plenty of up to date information and insight into the activity and there will also be the PokerStars Inside SCOOP, so if you want to hear all the gossip, it will all be available for you.

All of this means that poker is likely to be at the forefront of the action for poker fans this month, regardless of what else is going on in the city. This should ensure that there are no withdrawal symptoms for poker fans who find themselves taking part in the fringe action.
