  • The GUKPT heads to Leeds for a £100,000 guaranteed Main Event costing £560 to enter.

The sixth leg of the 2018 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) takes place at the Grosvenor Casino Westgate in the Leeds where a £100,000 guaranteed Main Event is the showpiece tournament.

This season’s GUKPT Leeds festival is the fourth to take place in the Yorkshire city and it should be a superb, value-packed Main Event if the previous editions are anything to base judgement on.

GUKPT Leeds made its debut in 2014 and saw 228 players pony up £550 for the chance to become a GUKPT champion. Harry Law emerged victorious on that occasion and banked a cool £32,500 after defeating Michael Howard heads-up.

The tour returned to Leeds the following year and saw 249 players battle it out for a slice of the £124,500 prize pool. A four-way chop brought the curtain down on an action-packed weekend. Stephen Foster was crowned champion and received £24,500. John Woodhead,Simon Taberham and Thomas Besnier each collected £19,500.

It was 2017 the last time the GUKPT stopped off in Leeds and it was the biggest Main Event held there. Some 308 players created a £154,000 prize pool that was shared among the top 30 finishers. Leung Cheung decided to make a deal with the controversial Renee Xie that saw the latter scoop £33,000 and Cheung bank £37,900.
