GUKPT Coventry Has Begun; Head To The Midlands And Get Involved

GUKPT Coventry

The ninth leg of this season's Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) has already kicked off at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. With only three more stops on the 2012 GUKPT time is running out if you want to bag yourself a GUKPT title and the huge prizes that come with such an honour.

Last night was a £110 No Limit Hold'em tournament whilst tonight features a £330 No Limit Hold'em freezeout that is sure to attract some solid players. For their £330, players receive 10,000 chips and will play to a 40-minute clock. Also on the schedule is a £275 Pot Limit Omaha Freezeout, a £220 Six-Max No Limit Hold'em freezeout, a £315 Bounty event and of course, the £1,070 GUKPT Coventry Main Event.

The 2011 GUKPT Coventry Main Event drew a crowd of 145 players, among them some of the best in the business. World Series of Poker Main Event final tablist Jon Kalmar made it all the way to 12th place, whilst the likes of Sam Grafton (9th) and Stuart Rutter (5th) reached the final table. But all the plaudits were saved for the eventual champion, Julian Thew, who defeated Richard Trigg heads up to win a record third GUKPT title.
