Goodbye from London – 22:01

London is always a great host to the GUKPT and the events are always well supported here at The Poker Room, the best poker room in the country!

The last ten days have been great! Huge numbers in the new Midi Main Event, big numbers in the Mini Main Event and one of the biggest Leg 1 prize pools ever with over half a million pounds collected.

The Main Event ran like clockwork over the last four days and one man has held pole position the whole time, that man is Artan Dedusha who now has the trophy. He is the first Main Event champion of the 2020 season.

Thanks for joining us over the last four days and interacting with Tower & Jay in our chat boxes. We will be back in four weeks time as the GUKPT bus rolls on to Manchester where we are expecting another record field. We hope to see you there.
