2015 GUKPT Manchester

After a successful opening leg in London in late January, the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) heads north to Manchester for the second of eight legs on the 2015 tour.

Manchester has been on the GUKPT calendar since the tour’s creation back in 2007, making this upcoming event the ninth GUKPT Manchester festival held. Past winners of GUKPT Manchester Main Events include Dave Colclough, Marc Goodwin, Kuljinder Sidhu, Sunny Chattha, and even Chris Moorman’s dad, Simon!

Last season’s GUKPT Manchester Main Event was a star-studded affair and its nine-handed final table one of the toughest ever assembled on the GUKPT. The shark-infested finale saw Karl Mahrenholz, Richard Kellett, and Steven Warburton bust leaving Simon Deadman and Rhys Jones to lock horns heads-up for the title.

Jones came out on top that day and should be in Manchester to attempt a title defence.

The £200,000 guaranteed Main Event kicks off Thursday 12 March with the first of two starting flights. Day 1b starts at 1:00 p.m. on Friday the 13th which happens to be the time the second and final days commence.

Acting as a warm-up act for the eagerly anticipated Main Event are the usual array of side events including a £100+£10 NL Hold’em re-entry, a £200+£20 NL Hold’em Six-max re-entry and a £300+£30 NL Hold’em re-entry event.

Should the £1,000+£90 buy-in for the GUKPT Manchester Main Event be a little too steep for your liking, there are a plethora of online and live satellites taking place in the run up to it. The Grosvenor G Casino is running £30+£5 rebuy satellites throughout the week plus a £150+£15 Super Satellite on the eve of the Main Event.
