The third leg of the 2013 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) sees the popular tour head to Stockton for an eight-day festival of first class poker action.
The first event on the schedule takes place on Sunday 5 May and is a £30+£5 No Limit Hold’em rebuy satellite that guarantees at least 10 seats to the GUKPT Stockton Main Event. Further satellites will run on May 6-9 costing just £30 with no registration fee.
These satellites feed into the £500+£50 GUKPT Stockton Main Event, a three-day tournament that has a guaranteed prize pool of £50,000. 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, a prize that is sure to be bettered this time around thanks to the £50,000 guarantee being in place.
As you would expect from a GUKPT stop, there is plenty of side action planned for those who prefer side events or for whom the £550 Main Event is out of reach. The full 2013 GUKPT Stockton schedule is shown below:
