GUKPT Cardiff A Week Away

GUKPT Cardiff A Week Away

Monday, 18 May 2015

There's less than a week to go now until the next stop on the GUKPT calendar in Cardiff. The eight-day festival runs from Sunday 24 to Sunday 31 May and features a packed 14-event schedule.

Top of the bill of course is the £500+£50 Main Event which has a pair of opening day flights starting at 1pm on Thursday 28 and Friday 29 May. Stacks start at 20,000 chips with a guaranteed prize pool of £100,000 up for grabs.

If the £550 buy-in is a little steep, there are plenty of opportunities to qualify on the cheap in advance. There's a live satellite at the G Casino in Cardiff at 7pm this Tuesday (19 May) with two seats guaranteed. It's a £25 buy-in affair with unlimited rebuys and a double add-on. A similar event follows on Thursday with a £500 GUKPT voucher up for grabs (you'll have to make up the extra £50 if you want to play the Main Event, alternatively you can use it to enter a variety of side events). It's also a £25 rebuy and starts at 7pm.

There are ample opportunities to qualify during the festival week itself, starting on Sunday 24 May where 10 seats are guaranteed in a £30 Super Satellites. Further qualifiers will run throughout the week.

If online is more you thing, there are qualifiers running at Grosvenor Poker every Tuesday and Sunday with two seats guaranteed.
