Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Leg 2: Walsall Starts this Sunday 11th March

The GUKPT returns to the West Midlands mainstay of poker, Grosvenor Casino Walsall for Leg 2.  

With a full set of satellites, side events and, of course, the £1,000 Main Event running from the 16th-18th March.

The Main Event features a 20,000 starting stack and one-hour clock. Last year’s Main Event saw London cabbie Alan Mansbridge take the Walsall title after the most dramatic reversal of fortune ever seen on the Tour. Having finished the first day in last place – not bothering to book a hotel for the following night – he went on to become the last man standing, winning £50,000 in the process.

This year the GUKPT Walsall leg offers the new tour-wide schedule including registration-free turbo super satellites in the afternoons running up to the Main Event; see below for details and www.gukpt.com for more information on individual events’ clocks and starting stacks.

Qualifiers are also running on www.grosvenorcasinos.com/poker

As is the Online 10% Series rounding off each GUKPT Leg.
