The United Kingdom's premier live poker tour, the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) heads north for the third leg of the 2013 season and you could be following it armed with a £550 seat to the GUKPT Stockton Main Event.
Kicking off on Sunday 5 May and running through until Sunday 12 May, the GUKPT Stockton leg sees a total of 14 tournaments played at the Grosvenor G Casino, Stockton. The highlight of the week is the £550 buy-in GUKPT Stockton Main Event, a tournament that you could be playing in for free thanks to a PokerNews-exclusive freeroll on Sunday 28 April.
No UK & Ireland PokerNews hasn’t gone mad, we really are offering you the chance to play in the GUKPT Stockton Main Event for free. All you need to do is download the excellent Grosvenor Poker software through PokerNews and you will be able to enter a PokerNews-exclusive freeroll that will see the eventual winner walk away with a ticket worth £550 that can be used to buy into GUKPT Stockton – or any other £550 GUKPT Main Event of your choice.
In addition to the GUKPT Freeroll #2 champion bagging themselves a £550 ticket, the players who finish in second place through to seventh place will each be awarded a £55 online ticket that can be used to enter any of the £55 GUKPT online satellite tournaments! We’re sure you will agree this is an amazing offer.
But wait, because it gets even better! New customers who download Grosvenor Poker and make their first real money deposit will be rewarded with a 100% match up to $500 first deposit bonus, making this deal potentially very profitable indeed!
Last season's GUKPT Stockton Main Event saw a compact field of 73 entrants battle it out for a share of the £36,500 prize pool. Allan Peers was the man who won the title and the £11,000 first place. This season's prize pool is guaranteed to be at least £50,000 and that means the eventual champion will be leaving the North-East with even more cash!
