GUKPT London is Under Way at The Grosvenor Victoria Casino
The first leg of the 2013 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) kicks off in style on Wednesday at the famous Grosvenor Victoria Casino – better known as The Vic.
The first of 12 legs, GUKPT London features seven events – including the £1,070 Main Event – and a plethora of satellite tournaments. The £100+£10 No Limit Hold’em opening event took place last night, but there are a whole host of superbly run tournaments that you can get your teeth into over the coming week.

The London legs of the GUKPT are always popular and well attended. In last year’s £1,070 Main Event there were a total of 315 entrants who created a prize pool of £315,000. Among the entrants were seasoned professionals such as James Akenhead, Praz Bansi, Jeff Kimber and Team PokerStars Pro Victoria Coren.
The tournament was eventually won by Robin Keston, who bested a tough final table to walk away with the £84,310 first place prize, and a seat in the Tournament of Champions £100,000 freeroll. Read all about the 2012 GUKPT London final table in our recap here.
