Genting Grand Final Starts Today

Thursday, 11 December 2014

A host of the UK's top grinders will be on the hunt for a big pre-Christmas bonus this weekend courtesy of the 2014 Genting Poker Series Grand Final which starts this lunchtime.

A guaranteed prize pool of £200,000 is up for grabs at Sheffield's Genting Club in the £880 buy-in event.

The first of two live flights is off at 1pm today with the second following at the same time on Friday. Players will start with 30,000 chips with the clock running at 60-minutes.

The survivors from the two live opening flights will be joined on Saturday by the players who made the cut from Wednesday night's online leg.

A busy line-up of complementary action continues at 7pm tonight with £20,000 guaranteed in the two-day, £135+£15 side event. Stacks start at 50,000 chips in this one, with a 40-minute clock. Like the Main Event, the £20k gtd tournament features two opening flights with the second starting at 7pm on Friday.

Rounding out the action is a £50+£5 saver at 5pm Sunday which is offering a £3k guaranteed prize pool.

This year's hopefuls will be looking to follow in the footsteps of Richard Milner who took down the 2013 GPS Grand Final and a score of £40,086.
