GUKPT Blackpool under way!

By Mad Harper

GUKPT Blackpool under way!
The GUKPT Blackpool festival is underway with a week-long event at Grosvenor Casino Blackpool, right on the city’s famous seafront. There’s still plenty of time to get up there for the £1,100 Main Event which has  a £200,000 guarantee:  Day 1a is on Thursday, Day 1b on Friday.

The new  £220 Mini Main Event is proving very popular: Day 1a got 115 entries with 33 through to Day 2 tomorrow; Day 1b starts at 7.30pm tonight.

 Last season Scottish player Jonny Gray beat a 224-entry field  to take down the Main Event for a career-best live cash of £69,050. The GUKPT is celebrating its tenth season this year and is now the longest running poker tour in the country. It will wrap up this bumper year with the 14-event GUKPT Grand Final at the famous Grosvenor Victoria Casino in London from November 20-27. The £2,125 Main Event comes with a massive £400k guarantee!
