Edinburgh gears itself for Scotland’s Poker Highlight of the year!
Grosvenor Casinos’ GUKPT is heading North of the border to pay a visit to one of the most beautiful stops on the tour – the stunning city of Edinburgh. The cardroom at Grosvenor Casino Maybury is gearing up for its busiest week of the year which will see non-stop poker action throughout.
Last year it was 18-year-old Tommy Le who stole the poker headlines as he turned £26 in to a massive £25,000 – thanks to a satellite run by Grosvenor Casino Maybury before the event. An incredible achievement for many but even more so for the University of Edinburgh student who has been scoring straight A’s in his medical degree as well as investing his time in poker, playing a huge role at his University’s Poker Society.
The week-long festival officially kicks off this Sunday with the £10,000 Guaranteed GUKPT Mini Main (£100+10 buy-in) and 10 seat Main Event Super Satellite. Grosvenor Casino Maybury has also laid out plenty of opportunities for customers to win their £550 Main Event seat this week via one of the many early bird live satellites on offer. Grosvenor Casino Maybury will give at least 21 people the chance to play for a share of the £100,000 prizepool for just £36 – just like Tommy Le!
Customers also have the option of winning their £550 seat from the comfort of their own home by downloading Grosvenor Poker. This week there are 10 x £550 seats guaranteed via direct satellites taking place this Tuesday and Sunday with feeders running regularly starting from just 25p.
