2014 GUKPT Grand Final Festival Begins

2014 GUKPT Grand Final Festival Begins 0001

With 2014 rapidly coming to a close, one of the United Kingdom's premier poker tours is preparing to host its £400,000 grand final, we are of course talking about the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT).

It seems only minutes ago that we were writing about Oliver Price walking away with the title of 2014 GUKPT champion, but since then Rhys Jones, Andrew Teng, Chris Cousins, Ben Winsor, Vaidas Sirionas, Paul Vas Nunes, Harry Law, Adam Reynolds and Justin Astley have all taken down GUKPT Main Event, leaving only the eagerly anticipated Grand Final to play.

The 2014 GUKPT Grand Final festival takes place at the Poker Room above the iconic Grosvenor Victoria Casino, a fitting venue for such a prestigious event. Last year it was Kevin Allen who staged an epic comeback to won the £158,700 first place prize, joining illustrious former champions such as Paul Folytn, Fabian Quoss, former footballer Tony Cascarino and Sam “TheSquid” Grafton.

Several tournaments run either side of the £2,125 buy-in Grand Final including a £250+£25 No Limit Hol'em Six-Max event, a £200+£20 NL Hold'em / Omaha Round of Each, a £200+£20 NL Hold'em Bounty and a £150+£5 NL Hold'em freezeout, but it is the Grand Final and its £400,000 guaranteed prize pool that is the major attraction.

When Kevin Allen won the Grand Final in 2013, he was joined at the final table by the likes of Matthew Davenport, Ben Jackson, Scott Margereson, Richard Kellett, Thomas Bichon, Will Kassouf and Pratik Ghatge, while Zimnan Ziyard, Sam Grafton, Mitch Johnson, Victor Ilyukhin, Joe Laming, Caicai Huang, and Charlie Combes made it into the money places!
