Didsbury Hosts its First GUKPT Main Event on Sunday
The second leg of the 2013 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) runs from April 7-14 at the Grosvenor G Casino Didsbury. The highlight of the week-long festival is the £550 GUKPT Didbsury Main Event, which one of you lucky PokerNews customers will be playing in for free if you won our exclusive GUKPT freeroll on March 31.
The £500+£50 GUKPT Didsbury Main Event kicks off on Thursday 11 April with the first of its two starting days. Players start with a generous stack of 20,000 chips and the blinds increase every 60-minutes. What’s more, the GUKPT is slapping a guarantee of £50,000 onto the prize pool of this Main Event.
The Grosvenor G Casino Didsbury only opened in 2012 following a multi-million pound development and it will be the first time the GUKPT visits the casino. The casino is open from 12:00-06:00 daily, features free secure parking, a casual dining restaurant, live entertainment and a competitively-priced cocktail bar!
