Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Brighton Main Event Today
The last regular main event of the 2010 GUKPT season takes place today in the southern poker hub that is Brighton. Last year Bernard Litman took down this event for £70,520 and we can expect a lot of big names making their way down to attempt to capture a Champion of Champions seat as well as attempting to knock Alli Mallu off the top of the GUKPT Rankings.
