UK Student Poker Championships Online League Starts Tonight


Student from around the United Kingdom are flocking to Grosvenor Poker tonight for the online league of the UK Student Poker Championships (UKSPC).

Running for a total of 24 weeks, the league kicks off tonight (April 7) and continues for 12 weeks before taking a break for the summer – like what students do! – and returning for a further 12 weeks.

Thanks to the UKSPC being part of the GUKPT now, this online league has some superb prizes for both individuals and for the team aspect. The eventual winner of the league will be awarded a £2,000 GUKPT Grand Final seat and a commemorative trophy, while other prizes include: a £550 GUKPT buy-in, UKSPC High roller buy-ins and more.

Tonight is a £5.50 No Limit Hold’em Freezeout, which kicks off at 19:30. The UKSPC are determined the league will see the very best student poker player emerge and will be spreading a variety of games in the coming weeks. Next week is a £2.20 rebuy with March 21 being the day of the £10+£1 Deepstack 6-max.

In addition to any prize money won from each of the league games, players will be awarded leader board points similar to those PokerStars uses for TCOOP and SCOOP leader boards. This will mean the winner picks up 100 points, with lower finishes being awarded lesser amounts. Whoever has the most points at the end of 24 weeks will be deemed the winner.
