Grosvenor Casinos’ GUKPT – Back With a Bang for 2017 in Glorious HD
Grosvenor Casinos’ GUKPT is returning for its 11th consecutive season and is looking forward to what is anticipated to be another record breaking year for the UK’s longest running and most prestigious poker tour.
What better way to kick off the 2017 GUKPT than the first leg taking place at what many consider the home of U.K. Poker – the iconic ‘The Poker Room’, located above Grosvenor Casino Victoria, situated on London’s bustling Edgware Road.
The GUKPT offers nine legs running throughout 2017 before wrapping up the season in style at the GUKPT Grand Final. The 2017 GUKPT guarantees a staggering £1,800,000 in Main and Mini Main Event guarantees, with each leg hosting a Main Event with a guarantee ranging from £100,000 to £400,000 and a buy-in from £500+50 to £2,000+125.
The Main Event is sandwiched between a variety of other events including 6-Max, bounties and Omaha among others, which cater to all different types of players and bankrolls.
For each leg, both the host Grosvenor Casino venue and Grosvenorpoker.com give players a wealth of satellite opportunities to win their Main Event seats for a fraction of the cost.
Record Breaking Number Of Players
We predict a huge turnout to this year’s first GUKPT Leg and hope to beat the record that was made at last year’s London Leg which saw the largest ever number of players on a Day 1.
Like last year, our dedicated live media team will be in attendance, keeping all fans and supporters at home updated with the latest news from the cardroom floor. We are excited to reveal that this year all of the live streamed coverage is in Full HD, making it easier for our viewers to pick out the bluffs from the value bets!
