GUKPT Heads to Luton For Leg 9 of the 2014 Tour

2014 GUKPT Luton

It seems like it was only minutes ago that we were writing about Driton Haxhiaj winning the 2013 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) Luton Main Event, taking home £42,750 after a three-way chop, but it was in fact 12 months ago and the 2014 edition is now upon us.

Once again it is the Grosvenor G Casino on Park Street West that plays host to the GUKPT Luton festival, welcoming in the crowds from October 12 through to October 19. During the week, a total of eight events are set to play out with the crown jewel being the £1,080 buy-in Main Event that carries an unconditional £200,000 guaranteed prize pool.

The 2014 GUKPT Luton Main Event could be massive thanks to it backing onto the UKIPT and European Poker Tour festivals in nearby London. Whoever does take down the £200,000 guaranteed Main Event will join an elite group of former Luton champions that includes Sam Trickett, Neil Channing, Charles Chattha and Jamie O’Connor.
