I understand the plan is that Leg 7 will be Birmingham NEC, assuming that the new Genting casino is ready in time.

It`s interesting that Genting are planning two GPS events in Birmingham this year, whereas Grosvenor have pulled the GUKPT out of this area.  One of them must be wrong.

I heard that rumour too, but thought "Resorts World" was supposed to be open in the Spring. Presumably the casino will be operational well before then, which makes the "To Be Confirmed" rather odd.

I'm sure the newness of the venue will ensure it gets a lot of travelling players keen to check out the facilities. Plus Genting and DTD seem to put a lot more effort into their online satellites than Grosvenor.

Dates above amended as at 7th January as per the following press release from UK Poker News

At the start of November 2014, the Genting Poker Series (GPS) unveiled the stops in its 2015 tour. The announcement had mixed reactions with the removal of the Nottingham leg at Dusk Till Dawn, Grand Final and reducing the guarantees to £100,000 receiving negative press, but the introduction of the GPS Mini being welcomed with open arms.

GPS has made a few amendments to the schedule in the form of different dates. Here is the revised 2015 Genting Poker Series schedule.

The GPS management team have also made a number of changes to each stop on the 2015 calendar that we're told have been made to inject some fun back into poker.

Kevin Proctor, the Poker Operations Manager for Genting, said:

“We have listened to player’s feedback and in the present dark climate we want to put the fun back into poker. In the past we have been too poker-focused, so with the introduction of Poker Seminars from well-known UK Poker Players and the earlier finish to the Main Event we want players to have the opportunity to relax in the bar or play more poker if they wish. I like the introduction of the Mix/Max and we have seen Omaha regain popularity in the UK so it seems a good combination and puts a different variety into the GPS. With the charity game we feel we are doing our bit in the Poker community to help local charities.

“I believe that the GPS Mini will prove popular with all players and we are delighted to be introducing new venues to the Genting Poker Series family.”

Each GPS Main Event now only plays eight levels instead of ten, which shortens the day significantly. Furthermore, fans of Omaha and Mix/Max formats should be delighted that each leg of the 2015 GPS is to have one of those events spread at it.

One of the other fun elements is the charity “Beat the Boss” cash game that sees the new Tournament Director Colin McTaggart play against selected players on a Live Streamed table and any winnings that McTaggart makes are donated to a local charity.

Players do not have long to wait if they want to see the new-style GPS because the first leg of 2015 kicks off on February 2 at Star City in Birmingham.
