The title of this article may be a little misleading as the Plymouth leg of the GUKPT officially started yesterday with a £30+£5 satellite to the Main Event but the first “proper” event kicks off this evening at the Grosvenor G Casino in Plymouth.
Today is a £50+£5 No Limit Hold'em freezeout where players start with 7,500 tournament chips and play to a 25-minute clock. Traditionally these side events are extremely well received so if you want to sample the greatness of the GUKPT on a budget then head down to the G Casino tonight for the firs side event of the seventh leg of this year's tour.
Looking down the official schedule it looks like the Plymouth poker players are in for a real treat this week as there are a whole host of side events taking place. The full side event listing can be found below:

The crowning jewel in this action-packed week of poker is of course the £500+£50 No Limit Hold'em Main Event. This is one of the GUKPT's superb Deepstack events and will see players sit down with a massive stack of 50,000 chips and play to blinds that increase every 60-minutes. With a structure like this we are certain the cream will rise to the top of the payouts!
The G Casino Plymouth is also hosting a number of live satellites to the Main Event but it is best to contact them directly for confirmation of when they will take place. You can either head down to the casino on Derry's Cross (PL1 2SW) or give them a call on 01752 668922.
