New tour manager for GUKPT

New tour manager for GUKPT

Monday, 28 March 2011

You'd think that running one of the busiest card rooms in Britain would be enough to keep anyone busy but not Jeff Leigh though who has just been appointed the new tour manager for the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT).

Leigh, who is the Senior Poker Manager at London's Victoria Casino (aka The Vic), will be at the helm for this season's GUKPT festivals, starting in Walsall next month.

The highly experienced official is excited about his new role saying, “Despite my many years in poker and at the Vic I am still enthusiastic. Russell (Tamplin) has done a fantastic job as director, and now as national poker manager – I want to build on what he’s done.

“I’m already thinking about what I can bring to the table,” he said, “But I believe that it’s what you do that counts, not just what you say.”

The next GUKPT festival takes place at the Grosvenor Casino in Walsall, starting on 24 April 2011 with the three-day, £1,070 Main Event beginning on Friday 29 April.
