First Leg of the 2015 GUKPT Begins Today
UK & Ireland PokerNews have been brining you recaps of the action for the first leg of the UKIPT's fifth season and this coming week we'll be kept busy by providing similar reports as the 2015 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) begins its ninth season.
The highlight of the London leg is the £200,000 guaranteed Main Event, which costs £1,000+£90 to enter, although with no fewer than seven side events for players to get their teeth into there is sure to be something for everyone.
When the GUKPT last stopped by in London, Grand Final apart, it was Oliver Price who emerged victorious and claimed the £86,400 first place prize after outlasting a field of 323 players. Among those who Price beat to the title were the likes of Philippe Souki, Mathew Frankland, Ben Vinson, Steve Watts, Tamer Kamel, Harry Law, Praz Bansi and Simon Deadman, big names that go to show how popular and prestigious the GUKPT Main Events are.

In the run up to Day 1b of the Main Event, there are plenty of opportunities to win your way into it for a fraction of the cost with the live satellites taking place at The poker Room, formerly The Vic.
