Grosvenor Casino on Bury New Road, Manchester, is all set to host the second leg of the 2017 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT), which starts at 12:00pm this Sunday 26 February. This leg of the tour will comprise 14 events, and the Main Event – which offers a guaranteed prize pool of £200,000 – will conclude on Sunday 5 March. 

The first leg of this year’s GUKPT, which is the 11th since the annual festival began, was held in London from 29 Jan to 5 February. The Main Event was won by 21-year-old Michael Chi Zhang, who lives in Nottingham and beat a record 434 opponents to take the first prize of £113,000. That gave Michael his first major win since he started playing in cardrooms at the age of 18, and he will no doubt be keen to make sure that it isn’t his last.

The 14 events that will be played in the second leg of the GUKPT in Manchester give poker players plenty of chances to win big, and highlights include:

A 10 Seat Super Satellite on Sunday 26 February which guarantees ten seats to the Main Event (worth £1,000 + £100 each) for a buy-in of just £30 + £6.

Several Turbo Satellites which each guarantee one seat to the Main Event for a buy-in of £30+£6.

An Omaha 4/5/6 tournament on Thursday 2 March, which has a buy-in of £150+£15 and allows one re-entry.

A Bounty tournament on Friday 3 March, with one re-entry and a buy-in of £75/£75 + £15.

Whilst players can win themselves a seat to the £200,000 Guaranteed Main Event at the festival itself, they can also have a go at winning one of the direct satellite events which are being offered at Grosvenor Poker online. Visit Grosvenor Poker to find out more, and good luck to everyone who gets involved.
