Sky Poker will host the inaugural UK Poker Championship at Nottingham venue Dusk Till Dawn in February 2014.

The seven-day festival will be the "biggest live event [Sky Poker has] ever had", according to head of Sky Poker Richard Milner.

The highlight of the tournament will be the championship event on 19-23 February and its guaranteed £500,000 prize pool, which will be broadcast on Sky Sports.

The UK Poker Championship event will be the finale to a week-long Sky Poker UK Poker Festival, which kicks off on 17 February 2014.

Milner said: "Everyone at Sky Poker is really excited about the UK Poker Championships. It will be the biggest live event we have ever had and comes hot on the heels of another successful season of the Sky Poker Tour, which culminated in our grand final on 27 October.

"We're delighted to be working with the team at Dusk Till Dawn on this event. We have had many excellent events there in the past and this will be even bigger and better."
