GUKPT Reading Main Event starts tomorrow

Wednesday, 19 June 2013

While most attention is fixed on Las Vegas and the World Series of Poker the staples of the UK tournament circuit continue with the latest leg of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) hitting Reading this week.

The first of two opening flights in the £50,000 guaranteed Main Event gets under way at noon on Thursday with the second following at the same time on Friday. Players will start with stacks of 20,000 chips with a one-hour clock. Re-entry is available for the first six levels on both opening days.

Players looking to get into the £500+£50 Main Event on the cheap can try their luck in a £30 rebuy satellites at the G Casino in Reading at 4pm or in a £50 re-entry qualifier at 8.30pm tonight and a £30 rebuy satellite at 4pm tomorrow.

As usual, there's plenty of side event action scheduled over the next few days including Omaha, six-max and bounty tournaments. The full schedule is available at

Nick Humphris took the honours in the most recent event on the GUKPT calendar, pocketing £16,500 after outlasting a 134-runner field in Portsmouth.
