GUKPT | Leg 3 Edinburgh Day 3 Blog

The GUKPT Tour travels to North of the border to Edinburgh for Leg 3 of the 2019 Tour.

There’s just 12 players coming back today for the final day. Who is going to take down the £42,000 first place prize??

 


 

Goodbye From Edinburgh – 21:50

The biggest ever GUKPT Main Event in Scotland is now firmly in the history books!
An unbelievable turnout of 309 entries is a new record by 51 entries!

A massive credit has to go to Ant and his team for qualifying 67 players to the main event. That’s why this leg is one of the most fun because there’s plenty of locals in the field.

The last two days have been dominated by eventual winner Nathan Slater who has held the chip lead since yesterday evening, he is a thoroughly deserving champion! After chopping the Blackpool Deepstack & finishing 5th in the Blackpool 25/25 Series, he now has a Main Event title, trophy and £42,110!!

Thanks to everyone who interacted with us and watched the stream over the last four days, it’s been great fun.

We will be back live streaming the UKSPC in just two weeks time, so join us then!
Until next time, be lucky!
