GUKPT Brighton Kicks off July 21

GUKPT Brighton Kicks off July 21 0001

Only one week ago, David Tighe took down the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) Main Event in Walsall for almost £25,000 in prize money. On July 21, the latest installment of the 2013 GUKPT kicks off in the seaside town of Brighton.

The GUKPT has not dropped anchor in Brighton for almost three years; the last time it did Paul Foltyn took down the £1,070 buy-in Main Event and bagged himself £46,400 in the process. This time around, the GUKPT Brighton Main Event has had its buy-in slashed to a more manageable £550 and that should be enough to attract a bumper field to the G Casino, Brighton.

Each player in the GUKPT Brighton Main Event starts with 20,000 tournament chips and plays to a 60-minute blind levels. Re-entry and late entry is allowed for six levels in the Main Event – three in side events – with no penalty, which means you can buy in during the sixth level and still sit down with 20,000 chips.

Kicking off the 2013 GUKPT Brighton festival is the traditional £30+£5 rebuy satellite to the Main Event. This special tournament starts at 19:30 on July 21 and awards 10 seats to the GUKPT Brighton Main Event. There are also rake-free satellites up to the start of the Main Event that only cost £30 to enter and award one seat to the GUKPT Brighton Main Event for every £550 that is in the prize pool.
