Dobson beats Winsor in Manchester; GUKPT Edinburgh up next

By Mad Harper

Following the huge success of GUKPT Manchester which ended in a spectacular heads-up between two giants of UK poker – Ben Dobson and Ben Winsor, GUKPT Edinburgh is next on the schedule with an eight-day festival starting March 22. The flagship £100,000 guarantee Main Event kicks off on Thursday, March 26.

 

WSOP bracelet winner Ben Dobson beat GUKPT phenomenon Ben Winsor in Manchester to snag a £75,510 top prize and deny his fellow Brit a record fourth GUKPT title. A huge field turned out for the Manchester event with 317 entrants creating a £ 310,660 prize pool – a good 50% up on the £200k guarantee.

Dobson qualified for the tournament online, converting his initial €110 outlay into a £75,510 payday – a reminder that online satellites are a great way to win your way into huge prize-money events.
