GUKPT Heads North of the Border for the Edinburgh Festival
Leg 3 of the 2014 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) sees the popular tour head north of the border to the capital of bonny Scotland, Edinburgh. The GUKPT Edinburgh festival runs from April 2 through to April 6 and sees six superb re-entry events take place at the Grosvenor Maybury Casino.
Kicking off proceedings is a £100+£10 No Limit Hold’em Re-entry on Wednesday night that carries a £5,000 guarantee, the perfect warm-up for Thursday’s £500+£50 Main Event. As is usually the case, the GUKPT Edinburgh Main Event features two starting flights with players able to re-enter once on each flight, giving themselves a total of four bites at the cherry. This tournament’s cherry is in the form of a £100,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Along with an army of online qualifiers, the entire stable of Grosvenor Casino sponsored pros should be heading to Edinburgh to lock horns with the locals. One such pro, Jeff Kimber, is brimming with confidence following his win in the inaugural PKR Live Mixed Max event over the weekend, while the newly branded PokerMob – Barney Boatman, Ross Boatman and Joe Beevers – are eager to get off the mark under the patches of their new sponsor.
