The annual Grosvenor UK Student Poker Championship (GUKSPC) is taking place inside Coventry’s Ricoh Arena from now until Sunday with more than 20 universities represented.
The tournament series from the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) has become increasingly popular with students over the last few years and the action got underway last night with a £110 buy-in high-roller event.However, despite having an advertised start time of 5pm the first game had to be stalled for an hour due to traffic problems around the West Midlands. When the event eventually got underway, more than 100 competitors were at the felt with Andrew Holroyd leading 64 other runners at the close of Day One. Play is scheduled to begin again from the same time later today, after which the registration desks will finally close.Away from the high-rollers, this year's GUKSPC £35 buy-in main event is expected to attract more than 400 runners. Some 200 have already registered online while some are hoping to book their seats for less via a range of last-minute satellites.Alongside a host of cash games, a pot-limit Omaha event and a deepstack tournament are also on the GUKSPC 2014 schedule as are some extracurricular activities including quizzes, beer pong tournaments, comedy guests and a bad beat competition.
The Winter Poker Championship Seefeld 2017 is set to run from February 16 to February 26 and online poker players are being offered the chance to win a prize package into the Austrian tournament series’ main event for as little as $3.30.
Christmas is just around the corner and Juicy Stakes and Intertops Poker are getting into the holiday spirit by offering online poker players the chance to double one re-load deposit up to $100.
