Action Packed Week at the 2016 GUKPT Manchester Festival

2016 GUKPT Manchester
  • The 2016 GUKPT Manchester festival runs from February 28-March 6 at the Grosvenor Casino Bury New Road.

Grosvenor Casino Bury New Road in Manchester plays host to the second leg of the 2016 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) from Sunday 28 February through to Sunday 6 March and everything points towards it being an excellent week-long festival.

Most of the focus is on the £200,000 guaranteed 2016 GUKPT Manchester Main Event, which costs £1,000+£100 to buy into, but also grabbing plenty of attention is the addition of a £200+£20 buy-in Mini Main Event and its £20,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Other side events include the ever-popular £150+£15 Omaha 4/5/6 card Round Of Each, a £150+£15 buy-in bounty tournament, and a handful of satellites feeding into the £200,000 guaranteed Main Event.
