Following the huge success of the last GUKPT in Manchester, GUKPT Edinburgh is next on the schedule, with an eight-day festival starting on March 31. The flagship £100,000 guarantee Main Event kicks off in ten days’ time – on Thursday, April 4.

As well as the £560 buy-in Main Event, the Edinburgh schedule also includes a £115 Mini Main Event – with £10,000 guarantee, plus live satellites, a £110 Omaha 4/5/6 tourney and a £110 Bounty tournament. Players can also qualify for the £100,000 guaranteed Main Event online at Grosvenor Poker.


One of the highlights of the schedule is Event 3, a £2,500 Cash Game Giveaway. Between 6pm to 4am on Wednesday, April 3, £250 will be awarded every hour to the highest ranked cash game hand. Hold’em and Omaha Cash tables are both included in the promotion and the prize money will be split proportionally depending on how many tables are being played in each variant.


In 2018 British player Garry Stevens-Smith beat a field of 258 entries to take down the prestigious tournament for £36,350, by far the best cash of his live poker career. Also in the money last year were Grosvenor Ambassador Jeff Kimber and 2017 passport winner David Gee.

The GUKPT is Grosvenor Poker’s flagship tour and the longest-running poker tour in the UK. 2019 is the GUKPT’s 13th consecutive season and promises to provide another record-breaking year with nine action-packed legs around the country. Buy-ins range from £500+60 to £2,500+150 with guarantees totalling between £100,000 and £500,000.
