Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Returns to Leeds on July 26

2015 GUKPT Leeds
Sharelines
  • 2015 GUKPT Leeds is upon us

  • £100,000 guaranteed GUKPT Leeds Main Event set to be a star-studded affair

  • £20 rake-free satellites to the GUKPT Leeds Main Event run throughout the festival

Leg 6 of the 2015 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) sees the popular, long-running tour head up north to the United Kingdom’s third-largest city, Leeds.

Taking place at Grosvenor Casino Westgate between July 26 and August 2, the 2015 GUKPT Leeds festival features 15 tournaments (including satellites) with buy-ins starting as low as £20 and increasing to £550.

The £500+£50 buy-in tournament is, of course, the GUKPT Leeds Main Event that has a £100,000 guaranteed prize pool. When Leeds hosted a GUKPT Main Event in September 2014, a total of 228 entries were processed and a £114,000 prize pool created.

Harry Law emerged victorious in the 2014 GUKPT Leeds Main Event, defeating Michael Howard heads-up to get his hands on the winner’s trophy and £32,500. You can read more about Law’s victory in this recap article.

This year’s GUKPT Leeds Main Event should be another star-studded affair, not least because the city is home to some of the United Kingdom’s most talented poker players. Top pros such as Tom Middleton, Marcin Milde, Richard Hawes, Jamie O’Connor, Dave Nicholson, Shane Mossop, and Ben Jones all call Leeds home and the lure of a big tournament on home soil should be too strong to turn down.

In addition to the Main Event, the organisers are spreading a number of side events throughout the festival. Tournaments such as the £50+£5 No Limit Hold’em Re-entry, £150+£15 No Limit Hold’em Re-entry and the £100+£10 Six Max should all draw decent crowds to the casino.
