The GUKPT – the UK’s longest running poker tour – is back for its 9th season with total guaranteed prize pools of over £1,500,000
Hot on the heels of the UKIPT London, playing out at the Hippodrome Casino now, the new GUKPT season kicks off next week at The Poker Room above the Grosvenor Victoria Casino.
Last year’s London leg saw Oliver Price come out on top, beating a strong field of players including Mathew Frankland, Simon Deadman, Harry Law and Praz Bansi. Oliver took home the first GUKPT trophy of 2014 and £86,400, which set him up for his best year of poker ever with over $1m in live winnings.
There are lots of ways to win your way in to the £1,000+£90 main event, which starts Thursday January 29. There’s a £100+£10 online Satellite on www.grosvenorpoker.com tonight, with two seats guaranteed. You can get into this for just £11 in 7pm’s feeder!
You can also play live satellites at the Vic – £30 rebuys play out daily from Sunday (7.30pm, 4pm Mon-Weds).
