Genting Poker Series Heads to Westcliff From October 13

Genting Poker Series
Sharelines
  • Leg 13 of the 2016 Genting Poker Series sees a £35,000 guaranteed tournament take place at Westcliff-on-Sea.

The seaside town of Westcliff-on-Sea is gearing up for the 13th leg of the 2016 Genting Poker Series (GPS), which will be the fifth GPS event held there.

From October 13 through to October 16, the Genting Club Westcliff will be awash with poker players from all over the country, each doing whatever they can to get their hands on a slice of the £35,000 guaranteed prize pool in the Genting Poker Series Mini tournament.

Featuring three starting flights, each costing £220 to enter, the GPS Mini Westcliff Main Event sees players sit down with a generous stack of 25,000 chips and play to blinds that increase every 40-minutes. Day 1a and Day 1b, on October 13 and October 14, both start at 7:00 p.m. which is perfect for recreational players as they won’t have to take time from work in order to compete for what should be a decent first place prize.

Players are entitled to make a single rebuy on each starting flight they enter, meaning you can in theory have six bites at the cherry. The GPS also allows what it calls Stack Surrender where if you progress to Day 2 with 25,000 chips or less, you can choose to surrender those chips and re-enter the next day.

The previous editions of the GPS Westcliff Main Event have all been £440 buy-in affairs. In 2013, Danny Tran topped a field of 367 to win £30,765 and Tran reached the final table in 2014 falling in sixth place as Robert McAdam walked away £33,730 richer and as a poker champion.

David L’Honore won the 2015 GPS Westcliff Main Event, turning £440 into £21,970, and in March 2016 it was that man again Danny Tran who walked away with the first place prize of £25,000; let’s hope for your sakes that Tran decides not to play in this latest GPS Westcliff tournament because his record in it is superb.
