GUKPT Heads to Blackpool For Penultimate 2019 Stop
The penultimate stop of the 2019 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) is upon is with the long-running tour heading to the Lancashire seaside town of Blackpool between November 3-10th.
Players from the length and breadth of the United Kingdom are set to brave the cold weather as they head to the coast for a week of poker action. The building of sandcastles may be off the agenda, but there will be hundreds of thousands of pounds won during the week and someone will claim the title of GUKPT Blackpool champion.

Other side events include the popular £165 Omaha 4/5/6, a £275 No Limit Hold’em event and a £165 bounty affair.
Of course, the tournament everyone wants to win is the £1,110 GUKPT Blackpool Main Event, something that some of the UK’s biggest stars have managed to do during the GUKPT’s 12 seasons thus far.
Such luminaries as Priyan de Mel, Simon Deadman, Richard Trigg, Tom Middleton, and Yiannis Liperis have all lifted the winner’s trophy aloft over the years, with each padding their bankroll with prizes ranging from £53,000 to £84,900.

The festival serves as the perfect warm-up for the season-ending GUKPT Grand Final that takes place in the heart of London from November 16 to December 1st. A cool £500,000 is guaranteed in the £2,650 GUKPT Grand Final Main Event and winning the Blackpool event will give the champion more than enough of a bankroll boost to head to the big smoke and compete in this half-million guaranteed tournament.
