Unibet UK Poker Tour off to Glasgow

By Mad Harper

Following the amazing event at Unibet UK Poker Tour Brighton – with three women making the final table – the Unibet UK Poker Tour is off to Glasgow.


The event is being held at Alea Casino in Glasgow with £40,000 guaranteed Main Event running June 2-4. The £200+£20 buy-in event gives players a 25,000 starting stack, with 40 min blinds and one re-entry allowed per starting day. Day 1a starts 7pm on June 2, with 1b at 1pm on June 3 and the final on Sunday, June 4.


The last event in Brighton was won by Unibet qualifier Mateusz Krzyzewski. Krzyzewski, who won his package to Brighton via a €25 online tournament, snagged the coveted trophy, a £14,090 first prize and package to Unibet UK Poker Tour Glasgow.


An enthusiastic rail gave huge support to the three female finalists in Brighton - partypoker’s VIP Manager Charlie Godwin (8th), Brighton-based American Deborah ‘Debs the Destroyer” Worley-Roberts (3rd) and runner-up Renata Jack who lives near Brighton in Poynings.


There are five Unibet UK Poker Tour stops this year with each boasting a £220 buy-in, £40,000 guarantee Main Event. Since the tour began in Brighton last year, there have been six UK Poker Tour champions – and three have been qualifiers. The Brighton stop generated a £52,200 prize pool, a tour record with 261 entries to the £220 Main Event.


As well as the cash prize, each Unibet UK Poker Tour champion will get a custom trophy and a package worth €2,000 for a Unibet Open event. A €2,000 Unibet Open package will also go the online qualifier who lasts longest in each event.


After Glasgow, the tour is heading to Nottingham (August 25-27), Brighton again in October and Manchester December 8-10.
