GUKPT Heads to Reading for the Fifth Leg of the 2013 Season


The fifth leg of the 2013 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) takes place at the G Casino Reading between June 16 and June 23. Featuring 14 events (including satellites) with buy-ins ranging from £30 up to £550, the GUKPT Reading festival has something to offer players of all bankroll and skill levels.

Chris Green is the General Manager of the G Casino Reading and he will be pulling out all the stops to ensure that the GUKPT, which heads to Reading for the first time in its seven-season history, returns again and again to Berkshire.

Kicking off the festival on Sunday 16 June is a £30+£5 satellite to the Main Event that guarantees no less than 10 seats worth £550 each. This particular satellite is usually very popular and is a great way to gain entry to the Main Event cheaply.

The first non-satellite event runs on Monday 17 June at 19:30 and costs £75+£8 to buy into. Players in this tournament receive 7,500 chips and play to a 25 minute clock. Like all non-satellite events, including the Main Event, the £75+£8 tournament is played to a re-entry format maximising your chances of making into the money places and beyond.

The three-day £550 Main Event starts at 12:00 on Thursday 20 June and continues through to Sunday 23 June. Everyone in the GUKPT Reading Main Event receives a generous stack of 20,000 chips and plays to a 60-minute clock. Should you somehow manage to dust off your stack within the first six levels you are allowed to re-enter on the same day or buy back in on Day 1b.
