GUKPT Walsall starts today

Friday, 16 March 2012

The Grosvenor UK Poker Tour caravan hits the midlands this weekend in the form of the £1,000+£70 GUKPT Walsall Main Event. The three-day tournament gets under way at 2pm this afternoon with players starting with 20,000 chips and a one hour clock.

There has already been a busy week of GUKPT action in Walsall with Mark Kelsall taking the £300 F/O side event and Chris Blower walking away with the £100 F/O title.

London cabbie Allan Mansfield took the honours in last year's event, driving away with a first prize of £50,000 after outlasting a 172-runner field.
