Manchester prepares for the arrival of GUKPT 2017

Grosvenor Casinos’ GUKPT heads North to the colourful and vibrant city of Manchester for its 2nd leg of the 2017 GUKPT. A stop in Manchester is always a highlight of the tour as without fail we leave overwhelmed by the support from the poker community in the North of England.

Last year Reyaaz Mulla won his seat to the £1,100 buy-in main event for a small investment via one of Grosvenor Casino Bury New Road’s live satellites during the week prior to the event. Not in his wildest dreams did Reyaaz think he would be playing for £58.000 against the likes of EPT Champion Tom Middleton. Luckily for Reyaaz, poker tournaments continue to provide the arena for such David and Goliath battles to play out.

GUKPT Manchester officially kicks off this Sunday with the popular GUKPT Mini Main, which carries a buy-in of £200+20 and a guarantee of £20,000. This is the perfect tournament for those looking for something a little more affordable and with a structure that allows for plenty of play. This will be closely followed by the £30+6 buy-in Super Satellite which guarantees a massive 10 seats worth £1,100 each.

Customers won’t have to wait until Sunday to get involved in the action as Grosvenor Casino Bury New Road are getting the party started early by running satellites all this week. This will guarantee an additional 30 x £1,100 seats as well as opportunities to win your £220 and £330 seats in some of the GUKPT side events and satellites.

As ever our dedicated live media team will be in Manchester making sure all those unable to attend are kept up to date with all the poker shenanigans during the week. You can follow all of the action via www.gukpt.com
