GUKPT Heads to Manchester

GUKPT Heads to Manchester

Friday, 6 March 2015

The GUKPT's second stop of the season will get underway next week in Manchester. Following a successful maiden out in 2015 back in January, the GUKPT bandwagon will now make the trip from London to Manchester's Grosvenor G Casino for another string of low to-to-mid stakes events.

A selection of satellites will take place tonight and on Sunday, before the first GUKPT Manchester side event gets underway on March 10. A £100+£10 rebuy will kick off the action and players will be able to compete in a selection of similarly priced events until the £1,000+£90 Main Event begins on March 12.

Allowing one re-entry per day, the Main Event promises to be a busy affair thanks to Manchester's longstanding presence on the tour. Offering betting options since 2007, GUKPT Manchester has seen some of the most recognisable names in UK poker take down titles, including Dave Colclough, Sunny Chattha and Rhys Jones.

Jones' win last year was one of the most notable as he found himself at a tough final table against some of the top grinders in the country. Karl Mahrenholz, Richard Kellett and Simon Deadman all tried to stop Jones, but at the end of the day he was simply too tough on the day for his peers.

This year the organizers are expecting to top 200 entries which would put the top prize close to £50,000. Qualifiers for the £200,000 guaranteed GUKPT Main Event are still taking place on Grosvenor Poker this Sunday.

Railbirds will be able to follow all the Main Event action as well as all the final tables from the side events via the GUKPT Live Stream.
