GUKPT 2019 kicks off with trip to London

By Mad Harper

Grosvenor Casinos has another packed year of live poker events coming up in 2019 including the ever-popular Grosvenor UK Poker Tour, new side events – such as a GUKPT High Roller – and the all new Deepstack tour!


The GUKPT, the company’s flagship tour, returns in 2019 for its 13th season making it the longest-running poker tour in the UK. The 2019 GUKPT will comprise nine legs each hosting a flagship Main Event with buy-ins ranging from £500+60 to £2,500+150 and guarantees of between £100,000 and £500,000.


The tour kicks off at the end of this month with GUKPT London running from January 27 to February 3 at the Poker Room above the iconic Grosvenor Victoria Casino in the Edgware Road. The £200,000 guarantee Main Event starts January 31 with a £1,000 + £100 buy-in and 20,000 starting stack. As always, the festival will get underway with the popular £20,000 guarantee Mini Main event and a new edition for all GUKPT festivals this year is that the Mini Main will also feature an online Day 1c flight on the Monday evening.


The last GUKPT at the Poker Room was the 2018 GUKPT Grand Final in November. Frenchman Jerome L'Hostis beat a 325-strong field in the £400k guarantee Main Event to snag a career-best cash of £140,445. It was the Frenchman’s fifth appearance on the tour and he faced a tough journey to victory; the final table was awash with top-name pros including partypoker MILLIONS Barcelona winner Ludovic Geilich, Unibet Open Cannes champion Julien Sitbon, WPT Nottingham winner Matas Cimbolas and EPT London finalist Tamer Kamel who was runner-up for


The GUKPT will continue to attract the biggest names in poker in 2019 including Grosvenor’s own roster of talented Ambassadors: Joe Beevers, Jeff Kimber, Katie Swift, Richard Trigg and Andy Hills – along with a host of recreational players, GUKPT newcomers and online qualifiers. Following London, the GUKPT is off to Manchester in March, then Edinburgh, Luton, a return visit to London, Leeds, a second visit to Luton, Blackpool and the Grand Final in London in November.
