Wednesday, 19 January 2011

We already reported that there was some serious added value on the 2011 run of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour but now the final details are confirmed. In fact, £300,000 will be put on top of the tournament series for players including a new series of Champion of Champions tournaments online.

Previously, one annual tournament with a £100,000 prize pool bought together the GUKPT and Summer Series champions to battle for a £20,000 first prize. Now, the week following the festival will see those champions take to the virtual felt to play for £20,000. Players gain chips up to 20,000 to start the tournament based on the events they won.

The first players eliminated from the £1,075 Main Events will also compete having been awarded Wild Card entries to the freerolls. In addition, the player holding the best hand in any tournament and the player on Table 5, Seat 5 – the Lucky Draw entry – will also compete.

The Leaderboard of the GUKPT is also revamped with the prize money up to £65,000. Points are earned based on buy-in, runners beaten and finishing position in the tournament. The leader will receive £26,000.
