GUKPT is back as all eyes turn to Leeds
Media Release: Wednesday 4th September 2019
Grosvenor Casinos’ GUKPT heads to Leeds this Sunday for the sixth GUKPT of the 2019 season. This is the fifth time the tour has headed to the Yorkshire town and Grosvenor Casino Westgate, Leeds is bracing itself for an action packed cardroom throughout the week long festival. Last year Adam Owen was the first person ever to win a GUKPT Mini and Main Event in the same week when he completed the impressive feat in Leeds, cementing his position as one of the leading UK Poker players.
Last year’s Main Event attracted 302 runners, creating a £151,000 prizepool. Action kicks off this Sunday with the £10,000 guaranteed GUKPT Mini Main which carries a buy-in of £100+15. A big turnout is expected as the deep structure and affordable price tag make this an event not to be missed.
The £100,000 GUKPT Main Event kicks off on Thursday, meaning there’s plenty of chances remaining for players to secure their seat for less than the £500+60 buy-in. Grosvenorpoker.com guarantees 3 x £560 seats via direct satellites every Wednesday and Sunday. There are also many low buy-in feeders to both direct satellites that run around the clock. In addition, Grosvenor Casino Leeds Westgate is getting the party started early with a five seat guaranteed satellite taking place this Saturday. Don’t miss out!
