£400,000 Gtd GUKPT Grand Final Main Event Begins Nov. 22
The Poker Room formerly The Vic, London is set to be packed to the rafter this week as the curtain comes down on another successful season of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour(GUKPT).
All of the eight GUKPT Main Events on the 2018 tour smashed their guarantees and the organisers are hoping that trend continues as it gears up for the £400,000 guaranteed Grand Final Main Event. This £2,150 buy-in tournament runs from Nov. 22 to Nov. 25 and features two starting flights, each with unlimited re-entries.

Although attendees have not been publicly names, we would fully expect the champions of Season 12’s GUKPT Main Events to head to London and continue their good run in GUKPT events. This would mean seeing the likes of Andrew Hulme, Garry Stevens-Smith, Patrik Szabo, Adam Owen, Neil Mcfayden and Yiannis Liperis descending on the English capital in an attempt to get their hands on what is likely to be a six-figure score.
All but last season’s Grand Final have paid their champion at least £108,625. The 2017 Grand Final would have followed suit had the final five players not struck a deal for the remaining prize pool, resulting in Ahmed Abdella to be crowned the tournament’s winner, a finish worth £89,000; third-placed Wenbin Chen scooped £129,000.
Previous GUKPT Grand Final Results
Whoever heads to the 2018 GUKPT Main Event will be rubbing shoulders with Grosvenor Poker sponsored pros Richard Trigg, Joe Beevers, Andy Hills, Jeff Kimber and Katie Swift.
These pros will also likely be battling in the many side events running before and after the £400,000 guaranteed Grand Final Main Event, including the £275 Mini Main, a brace of bounty tournaments and a quartet of no-limit hold’em side events.
