GUKPT London Starts Today


The second leg of the 2011 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour starts today in London. Always one of the most popular stops on the tour, the Grosvenor Victoria will welcome up to 200 players per start day for the Main Event (plus alternates for the first three levels). Last year this leg boasted a prize pool of nearly half a million pounds, and 2010 Champion Cuong Tran walked away with the trophy and £127,800.

This year changes to the side events bring in the popular £250 Short Handed Freezeout (15th March) and £200 Dealer’s Choice Event (19th March), as well as a one-off £300 Bounty Freezeout to end the festival with a bang. Please visit the Events tab on the GUKPT website for full information on structure, clock etc. for each event.

Champion of Champions – Leg 2
The London leg of the GUKPT has a Champion of Champions freeroll to match the heftier size of its Main Event – a £15,000 tournament held online on Wednesday 23rd March at 7:30pm. Winners of all events (excluding satellites), the first player to be eliminated from each starting day of the Main Event, and the Lucky Draw (Table 5 Seat 5) in the Main Event will all gain entry to one of the best freerolls of the year. The holder of the best hand shown down in each event will also receive Wild Card entry.

There will be live coverage of the Main Event on the GUKPT blog and streaming (provided by AWOP).

You can qualify for every leg of the tour and do so with our exclusive free £11 & £55 tournament token offer, when you join BlueSquare Poker via PokerNews.
