£100,000 Guaranteed GUKPT Cardiff Stars This Weekend

2015 GUKPT Cardiff

The 2015 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) continues this weekend when it takes its £100,000 guaranteed Main Event to the Welsh capital Cardiff.

This year’s GUKPT Cardiff Main Event costs £500+£50 to enter and for that sum players receive a generous helping of 20,000 tournament chips, play to 60-minute long blinds and have a shot at winning a slice of £100,000 and, of course, the coveted GUKPT trophy.

Kicking off the festival is a £20+£5 Super Satellite to the Main Event that guarantees 10 Main Event seats, with the first cash tournament taking place on Monday when a £50+£5 No Limit Hold’em event runs.

Other side events include a £150+£15 No Limit Hold’em tournament, a £100+£10 No Limit Hold’em 6-Max, a £75+£7 Omaha 4/5/6, a £100+£10 No Limit Hold’em event and a £50+£5 buy-in No Limit Hold’em rebuy.

The inaugural GUKPT Cardiff Main Event cost £1,050 to enter and attracted 314 entrants. Those players were outlasted by a certain Michael Greco who walked away with £97,680 for his efforts.

Season 2 saw Cardiff dropped from the schedule, but it returned the following year and was won by Karl Mahrenholz who bested a field of 120 to scoop the £38,700 first place prize.

Vaidas Sirionas is the reigning GUKPT Cardiff champion having won the event during Season 8. Sirionas chopped heads-up with Mick Corrigan before going on to secure the title and £24,000.
