Grosvenor Casinos Unveils Busy 2019 Poker Calendar
The 2018 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) came to a thrilling conclusion on Nov. 25 when Jerome L’Hostis took down the GUKPT Grand Final Main Event in London. Grosvenor Casinos have wasted no time in letting their customers know the plans for the 2019 poker calendar, which make interesting reading.
2019 GUKPT Schedule
The 2019 GUKPT is the 13th season of the popular tour. This latest edition features nine legs, eight standard GUKPT stops with Main Events costing between £560 and £1,110 with guarantees of £100,000 to £200,000, plus the £2,650 buy-in Grand Final Main Event that now has a £500,000 guaranteed prize pool, up from £400,000.

Following feedback from players on the GUKPT, each 2019 GUKPT Mini Main Event will feature an online Day 1 held at Grosvenor Poker. This means players can play a Day 1 from the comfort of their own homes, or on the move via the Grosvenor Poker mobile app, and not have to travel to the venue until they have made Day 2 or want to take another shot at a Day 1.
The 2019 GUKPT Grand Final will now feature a £500,000 guaranteed prize pool, an increase of £100,000. New to the Grand Final schedule is a yet-to-be-announced High Roller event that is sure to pique the interest of some of the game’s best poker tournament players.
The hugely popular 25/25 Series continues in 2019 with no less than 35 stops planned. These tournaments cost £225 to enter and feature a £25,000 guaranteed prize pool. Like the 2019 GUKPT Main Events, there will be an online Day 1 held on the Wednesday before each live Day 1, giving players more flexibility.
Other popular festivals return for 2019 and should prove to be a major hit. The Easter Beast, Summer Sizzler and Christmas Cracker all return. They each cover seven regions, each featuring a £115 buy-in tournament with £20,000 guaranteed prize pools.
This format sees players play Day 1 across seven regions before combining for Day 2 to play the tournament out for the title.
UK Student Poker Championship and the 2019 Goliath
The Grosvenor Casino UK Student Poker Championship returns to Coventry from Apr. 23 for a week-long festival. The UKSPC has long been a popular stop for students all around the UK and, if previous editions are anything to go by, there should be plenty of fun and off-the-table antics to get involved in.
Keep Jul. 27 free if you fancy attempting to slay the Goliath. This tournament has broken the attendance record for the past couple of events, with the 2018 Goliath attracting a crowd of 7,584. Florian Duta won the event this year for £101,450. The 2019 Goliath guarantees the champion will walk away with at least £100,000.
New Deepstack and National League
Grosvenor Casinos is putting the finishing touches to its new Deepstack events that will take place at various destinations each weekend, giving players the chance to turn £150 into share of a guaranteed £12,000.
Players can also win Diamond and Platinum GUKPT packages for 2020 by competing in Grosvenor Casinos poker tournaments that have a £100 or higher buy-in and feature more than one starting flight. More details of this National League are coming soon.
