£50k GUKPT Bolton Main Event starts today

Thursday, 8 August 2013

The latest Main Event of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour starts today with the G Casino, Bolton the venue for the £500 contest.

The first of two opening flights in the £50k guaranteed tournament gets under way at noon today with players getting 20,000 and a 60-minute clock for their monkey. A second opening flight follows at noon on Friday with re-entry available for the first six levels on both days. The action will continue throughout the weekend with the latest GUKPT winner crowned on Sunday evening.

It was a case of trying to keep up with the Joneses at last year's GUKPT Bolton Main Event as Ben Jones pocketed the £17,390 Main Event first prize.
