GUKPT Luton All Ready To Start Tomorrow

With the poker scene a little quiet after the completion of the European Poker Tour San Remo, you may be wondering where the next piece of poker action is coming from. Well, the next stop of the GUKPT starts up tomorrow in Luton, the 11th leg of the sixth season will no doubt attract some of the countries and the Europe’s biggest poker names.

The tournament is to last a week with a good selection of events to keep us entertained, with the first event being the £100 NLHE event, each player will start out with 7,500 chips and have to handle blinds of just 25 minutes.

After that there are the main attractions to consider, there will be a two day tournament that is a £300 buy-in No Limit Hold’em freeze out event, a re-entry £250 Pot Limit Omaha event, a Six-Max £200 tournament and of course the Main Event which is a £1,000+£70 buy-in.

The Main Event in last year’s tournament attracted a healthy field of 212 players, of which many of them were household names. From that 212 there were just 22 that would be fortunate enough to be paid out, amongst them were players such as Paul Vas Nunes, EPT champion Toby Lewis, James Akenhead, Andrew Feldman, ANZPT Melbourne champion Sam Ravazi, eventual winner Charles Chattha and Joe Grech.

It ended up with an extremely close heads up encounter between Chattha and Lewis with the former eventually coming out on top to take down the title and the £59,360 winners cheque.

As you can see there was a whole host of big names, which is expected to be the same case this year. We know for sure that Toby Lewis will be there and hoping to go one better than his runner up finish last year.

Whilst the schedule we are displaying below covers each of the important events, there will also be a whole host of satellites that give players the opportunity to win seats into the Main Event for a much lower buy-in.
