GUKPT's Maiden Trip to Leeds

GUKPT's Maiden Trip to Leeds

Tuesday, 2 September 2014

This week will see the GUKPT make its first trip to Leeds, ever. Now in its eighth season and looking for pastures news, Grosvenor's popular event will land in Leeds on Wednesday for the first of five busy days.

Despite having visited some of the UK's top cities for the past eight years, the GUKPT has yet to set up shop in the West Yorkshire city, but all that will change tomorrow when Westgate's Grosvenor Casino will host a £110 re-entry side event.

With the players primed after an opening day of tournament action, things will move into high gear on Thursday when the first of two opening days in the £500 Main Event get under way.

Also on the menu for those who can't stomach the £500+£50 buy-in will be a £75+£7 PLO event, as well as various bounty and 6-max tournaments.

As ever, the Main Event will boast a £100,000 guarantee, but it will also be the final £500+£50 GUKPT Main Event of the season as the final stages of the tour will see the buy-ins and prizepools increase to £1,080 and £200,000 respectively.
