Leg 8 of the GUKPT commences this weekend and brings eight full days of poker to the Promenade from the 6th-14th November at the G Casino, Blackpool. There are nine side events including two popular £100 freezeouts (and one bounty freezeout) at the end of the week, plus the £1,000 Main Event running through the following weekend.
Last year the Main Event attracted 287 players and gave Priyan de Mel the first of his two GUKPT titles and £84,900 in prize money. Blackpool was in 2009, as it is this year, the final leg of the tour before it returns to London for the Grand Final, and there will be a £60 rebuy super satellite to the Grand Final held here on Saturday 13th November.
Remember, remember the 5th of November: There is a £50 super satellite for Blackpool’s Main Event on Friday 5th at 7:30pm, which guarantees ten seats with 40 players or more.
