Off to the seaside for GUKPT Blackpool

By Mad Harper

The GUKPT heads to the UK's favourite seaside resort on November 6 with a week-long event at Grosvenor Casino Blackpool, right on the city’s famous seafront. In addition to the £1,100 Main Event (with £200,000 guarantee), there are 12 other tourneys on the schedule including the new £220 Mini Main Event which has two start flights (on Sunday November 6 and Monday November 7). 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!
