GUKPT Bolton Main Event starts today
Friday, 20 July 2012
Short-handed specialists will be heading to the North West later today as the latest leg of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) hits Bolton.
The Lancashire town's G Casino is the venue for the £500+£50 Main Event which gets under way at 2pm today. The three-day event will see players start with 20,000 chips with a one hour clock.
Players will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Rod Albright who won last week's GUKPT event on Plymouth. The financial planner beat a 76-runner field to walk away with a first prize of £11,900.
Last year's GUKPT Summer Series event in Bolton was won by 2010 GUKPT Tournament of Champions runner up Steve Holden who pocketed £7,140 after beating Colin McConnaghy heads up.
