GUKPT Hits Edinburgh

on 2014-04-01, 02:06
Grosvenor Casinos’ GUKPT Season 8 visited Manchester earlier this month where a great week of poker culminated in one of the strongest main event final tables the tour has ever seen. The UK’s poker talent was out in force as 192 players battled it out for their share of the £200,000 prize pool, guaranteed by Grosvenor Casinos. In the end it was Portsmouth based Rhys Jones who fought off the UK’s in form man Simon Deadman to take the trophy and £57,000 1st prize.

Grosvenor Casinos is proud to take the GUKPT to more areas of the country than any other tour. This year sees some new exciting stops added to the schedule and none more so than the destination for leg 3 of this year’s tour – our long awaited first visit to the beautiful city of Edinburgh.

This is the first time the main tour has stopped north of the border, following on from successful ‘Summer Series’ events in both Aberdeen and Dundee in previous years.

Edinburgh is well known for its great festivals and this one will be no different. From the 2nd to the 6th of April the Grosvenor Casino Edinburgh will play host to a great week of poker action. The £550 Main Event carries a guaranteed prize pool of £100,000 but there is nothing ‘fringe’ about any of the side events which all carry generous guarantees, full details of which can be seen in the table below.

Grosvenor Casinos’ team of sponsored players will be in attendance, with Jeff Kimber definitely the form player having taken down the PKR Live Main Event last weekend and all look forward to testing their skills against Scotland's finest.
As with all GUKPT festivals, a great selection of events are on offer to suit all players. Live Satellites will be taking place through-out the week enabling players to qualify for as little as £20.
