UK Poker Tour is the complete poker portal for related to poker in the United Kingdom. In our opinion there really is one series of live poker events which stands head and shoulders above the rest, we are talking of course about the Grosvenor "UK Poker Tour" which is in association with G Casinos and G Casino Online.
The UK Poker Tour is now in it’s 4th Year and has brought the highest quality of live poker action to all parts of the UK.
The GUKPT tour itself offers a diverse range of live no limit hold’em and omaha tournaments at Grosvenor casino venues in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales and is not to be missed.
The very first GUKPT was shown on channel 4 late at night and proved a big success and was fundamental in bringing the game to a much wider audience. The poker book felt in the United Kingdom has to tip it’s hat to the fine people at Grosvenor for making live poker accessible and main stream.
The 2011 UK Poker Tour is in full swing and the summer series is at an end, we can look forward to more great live poker games as the GUKPT 2011 will no doubt continue to offer more events. Year on Year the tour has increased and provided more chances for UK poker players to partake in this ever popular game.
In 2009 the GUKPT introduced the “summer series” which were mini festivals of poker again held in Grosvenor casino around the UK. This time the main event buy-in was lower at £500 but players still experienced the same thrill and excellent live poker as would be found on the main tour.
Again in 2011 more events were added to the UK Poker Tour calendar and proved a huge hit with the loyal players and fans of the best UK Tournaments. The summer series took in more venues and offer main events running simultaneously at two separate venues with entry fees of £300 and £500. This again opened up the tournaments to more players and attracted newer faces to the game.
