Genting Poker Series Sheffield Less Than a Week Away

Genting Club Sheffield

The eagerly anticipated Sheffield leg of the 2013 Genting Poker Series (GPS) is just days away and all signs point towards its Main Event being one of the biggest the GPS has ever seen.

The 2012 edition of the GPS Sheffield Main Event saw 562 players bu in for £400+£40 and create an impressive prize pool of £224,800. The lion’s share of this substantial sum found its way into the bankroll of Hasmukh Khodiyara, the GPS Sheffield champion.

Khodiyara defeated Stephen McGrath heads-up to claim the £50,000 first place prize as his own. You can read more about the 2012 GPS Sheffield Main Event in our recap article.

To cope with the anticipated demand, this year’s GPS Sheffield features three starting days, the first of which takes place at 13:00 on Wednesday 15 May. The two subsequent starting flights run at the same time on Thursday and Friday respectively.

Sandwiched in between the Main Event are four side events. There is a £100+£10 Pot Limit Omaha tournament to get your teeth stuck into, while No Limit Hold’em specialists can choose from a £100+£10 win-the-button tournament, a £150+£15 side event and a £50+£25+£10 Bounty event.
