GUKPT Reading Main Event Begins

GUKPT Reading Main Event Begins

Thursday, 25 June 2015

The showpiece event of the GUKPT Reading festival gets under way today with £100,000 guaranteed in the Main Event.

The first of two opening day flights in the £500+£50 contest starts at 1pm with day 1b following at the same time on Friday. Players will start with a stack of 20,000 chips with one re-entry allowed.

If £500 is a bit steep on the bankroll, there's a £20 rebuy super satellite starting at 4pm.

There's plenty of side action scheduled over the next few days including a £75+£7 4/5/6 card round of each Omaha starting at 6pm today. A £50+£50+£10 bounty tournament follows at 9pm on Friday with a £100+£10 NLHE re-entry starting at 6pm on Saturday. Rounding out the action is a £50+£5 NLHE with a £25 re-entry, add-on.

This week's visitors to Royal Berkshire will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of Paul Vasnunes who pocketed £29,200 after winning last year's Reading Main Event.
