Who will be next to join the incredible list of GUKPT Luton champions?
Grosvenor Casinos’ GUKPT is heading to one of the tour’s most popular destinations – Luton. The Luton Leg has always been a firm favourite with both regular players as well as those new to the tour. As many know Luton also means the tour welcomes back the £200,000 Guaranteed GUKPT Main Event.
GUKPT Luton and its £200,000 prizepool has always attracted UK poker’s attention with healthy numbers across all events throughout its 12 year history. The prestigious leg has crowned many big name champions over the years including the likes of Charles Chattha, Richard Gryko, Neil Channing, Sam Trickett and last year’s winner John Eames.
Like many Grosvenor Casinos’ poker events the extensive satellite offering makes the Main Event’s £1,110 buy-in accessible to all. Last year poker novice Harvey Norris turned up to Grosvenor Casino Luton to take part in his first ever tournament. Little did he know three days later he’d be playing heads up against one of UK poker’s finest in John Eames, eventually finishing runner up and taking home just shy of £45,000.
This year Grosvenor Casinos is again offering a host of opportunities for customers to win their entry to the main event, just like Harvey did. Satellites start at just 25p on GrosvenorPoker.com and Grosvenor Casino Luton is hosting a satellite this Friday with 5 x £1,110 GUKPT seats guaranteed.
GUKPT Luton officially kicks off this Sunday with the £20,000 Guaranteed GUKPT Mini Main, with action following on thick and fast before the Main Event kicks off on Thursday at 1pm. Please see the complete schedule here.
