Leg 4 of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) begins this weekend and sees the popular, long-running tour head to the south coats and drop anchor in Portsmouth.
From Sunday 26 May through to Sunday 2 June, the Grosvenor G Casino Portsmouth Gunwharf Quays should be packed to the rafters and be buzzing with the excitement only a GUKPT can generate. Kicking off the fourth leg of the 2013 GUKPT is the £30+£5 rebuy satellite to the Main Event where 10 seats are guaranteed. This special satellite begins at 19:30 on May 26 and could be your best chance of getting into the £500+£50 GUKPT Portsmouth Main Event cheaply.
The £550 buy-in GUKPT Portsmouth Main Event features two starting flights, the first commencing at 12:00 on Thursday 30 May with Day 1b starting at the same time on Friday 31 May. The second official day takes place at noon on Saturday 1 June and the final day’s play starts on Sunday 2 June, again at midday.
The GUKPT Main Events are superb value for money. In exchange for £550, players receive 20,000 chips and play to a slow and steady blind structure that increases every 60-minutes. For those players who somehow manage to dust of their deep stacks early on in the tournament, re-entry is permitted up until the end of the sixth level of play on both starting flights.
