Unibet UK Manchester starts Friday

By Mad Harper

The Unibet UK Poker Tour is back this week with the fifth and final stop of the year - a £40,000 guarantee event in Manchester. We are the tour’s Official Travel partner and have lots of great hotel options for Manchester including the Marriott, Renaissance and Britannia.

 

The £200+£20 buy-in Unibet UK Manchester event runs December 8-10 at Manchester235 and offers players a 25,000 starting stack with 40 minute blinds and one re-entry allowed per starting day. Day 1a is on December 8 at 7pm with Day 1b at 1pm on December 9.

 

Last year’s event was won by Vamshi Vandanapu for £8,000. He beat a 214-entry field to snag his only win on the tour to date. There were 23 players who got a share of the guarantee-busting £44,200 prize pool.

 

There have been four Unibet UK Poker Tour stops in 2017 including two visits to Brighton as well as Glasgow and Nottingham.

 

Unibet Open Bucharest has just finished with Marius Pertea winning on home soil in the Romanian capital. The 37-year-old general manager scored a lifetime best cash of €90,925 after beating a field of 502 entries.
