GUKPT Grand Final Main Event starts next Thursday, Mini Main on Sunday

By Mad Harper

The GUKPT Grand Final, one of the UK’s standout poker events of the year, is under way at the Poker Room above the iconic Grosvenor Victoria Casino. The festival began last Monday with the £500,000 guarantee GUKPT Grand Final Main Event starting November 28.


We are the tour’s Official Travel Partner and have great deals for London hotels including the luxurious Marriott at Marble Arch and Hilton Metropole at Edgware Road, as well as some great budget options nearby.


Some of the UK’s top players will be competing at the GUKPT Grand Final including Grosvenor Ambassadors such as Joe Beevers, Katie Swift, Jeff Kimber and Andy Hills. The packed schedule also features several other tournaments such as the £30,000 guarantee Mini Main which starts on Sunday.

The GUKPT Grand Final follows an amazing event in Blackpool which smashed all previous records for the event – 423 entries in the £20k guarantee Mini Main and 367 in the £200k Main Event. Matt Eardley took it down for £84,550 with 34 sharing the £367,000 prize pool, including runner-up Terry Jordon, Richard Kellett, Luke Marsh, Ben Dobson and Tom Hall.


At last year’s GUKPT Grand Final in London, Frenchman Jerome L'Hostis beat a 325-strong field in the £400k guarantee Main Event to snag a career-best cash of £140,445. The final table was awash with top-name pros including partypoker MILLIONS Barcelona winner Ludovic Geilich, Unibet Open Cannes champion Julien Sitbon, WPT Nottingham winner Matas Cimbolas and EPT London finalist Tamer Kamel who was runner-up for £110,00.


2019 has been an amazing year on the GUKPT with a roll call of champions that includes Chris Louch, Benard Maregedze and Cheuk Lee. Andrew Hulme, who took down the first GUKPT London last year, narrowly missed becoming a two-time GUKPT champion when he was runner-up to Vikrum Mehta in Luton last month.


Grosvenor Ambassador Jeff Kimber says the best is yet to come. He said: “The GUKPT Grand Final has £500,000 guaranteed, an amazing structure and a great range of entrants, from superstar pros to recreational players. I’m really excited for the Grand Final, the best comp in the UK this and every year.”
