GUKPT London Main Event starts tomorrow

By Mad Harper

The second GUKPT London of 2019 is under way with the flagship £100,000 guarantee Main Event starting tomorrow.

Ridah Khan took down the £10,000 guarantee Mini Main for £7,218 after beating tour regular Justin Kyriakides heads-up. The last eight cut a deal before embarking on their final table battle. There were a staggering 641 entries for the event creating a £62,818 prize pool.

Numbers were also through the roof for the first GUKPT London of the year; January’s Main Event attracted a record 467 entries and generated a staggering £467,000 prize pool. The first champion of 2019, who opted to remain anonymous, beat Greek pro Alexios Zervos to the £100,000 first prize with poker superstars Martin Jacobson, Ludovic Geilich and Patrick Leonard all enjoying deep runs in the stellar event.

MainEvent Travel sponsors the GUKPT all-in triangles so do look out for them on the live stream from the GUKPT London Main Event.

The tour’s second visit to London this year features a packed schedule. In addition to the now-completed Mini Main tournament and unlimited re-entry Main Event, a bunch of other events still remain including a £200 NL tourney, Omaha 4/5/6 and 50/50 Bounty.
