GUKPT Grand Final Begins

GUKPT Grand Final Begins

Thursday, 26 November 2015

The final main event of this year’s Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) begins today from the Grosvenor Casino The Victoria London with a total of £400,000 ($603,313) set to be up for grabs over the next few days.

The first of two opening flights for the £2,125 ($1,696) buy-in Grand Final no-limit hold‘em main event gets underway today from 1pm followed by a second tomorrow at the same time with players in both due to set off with 25,000 chips.

Those hoping to bag a pre-Christmas score on the cheap have opportunities to do so via a pair of satellites including a £40 ($60) buy-in Grand Final main event qualifier with unlimited rebuys starting today at 4pm. There will also be a £275 ($414) buy-in main event satellite featuring a single re-entry tonight from 9:30pm.

Sandwiched between these satellites will be a £275 buy-in 4/5/6-card Omaha event from 6pm while Friday’s line-up includes a £220 ($331) buy-in no-limit hold‘em bounty event at 7:30pm followed by a £275 re-entry game at 4pm on Saturday.

Rounding out the festival will be Sunday’s £165 ($249) buy-in no-limit hold‘em event with a £75 ($113) re-buy/add-on option from 4pm followed three hours later by a £110 ($166) buy-in saver game offering a single re-entry.

This week’s Grand Final main event participants will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Irishman Charlie Carrell who pocketed £108,625 ($163,904) in London last year after topping a field of 212 runners.
