Players Gear Up for GUKPT Reading

Players Gear Up for GUKPT Reading

Thursday, 31 July 2014

The GUKPT landed in Reading yesterday for the seventh leg of its UK tour. Running through until August 3rd and expected to welcome a slew of British talent thanks to the venue being one of the most popular in the country.

Indeed, the £500+£50 Main Event attracted 165 players last year and when the betting was over it was James Martin (not the famous TV chef) who walked away with the £22,640 top prize.

This time around the organisers are expecting a similar sized field for the centrepiece of the four-day festival.

To help warm things up ahead of the £100,000 guaranteed Main Event, the organisers hosted a string of side events yesterday, including £100+£10 NLHE re-entry tournament and a £20 rake free super satellite to the £500+£50 event.

Day 1A of the Main Event will begin later today and owing to the tournament's re-entry format, any player that gets eliminated today can rejoin the action on Friday.
