GUKPT Coventry Schedule 2011
The Grosvenor Casino at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry plays host to Leg 5 of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour from Sunday 9th October until Sunday 17th October. Home of the Women´s F.A. Cup Final, a host of rock concerts and Coventry F.C., the Ricoh Arena is a fantastic sports, entertainment and business venue in the heart of Coventry, yet with easy access from junction 3 of the M6.
Surrounded by a De Vere hotel, a fabulous assortment of restaurants and bars, and parking for over 2.000 vehicles, the Grosvenor Casino Coventry offers a fully equipped casino, electronic side games, the award winning Madhir´s Experience restaurant and a superbly equipped modern poker facility.
This is only the second time that the Grosvenor Casino has featured on the GUKPT main tour, and last year the inaugural Main Event was won by Birmingham based Stuart Rutter – a professional poker player who, by happy coincidence is sponsored by grosvenorcasinos.com. Stuart collected a winner´s cheque for £41.910, a seat in the Champion of Champions Tournament and valuable points on the GUKPT Leaderboard competition – Europe´s more valuable ranking system.
GUKPT Coventry 2011 Main Event
The GUKPT Coventry 2011 Main Event commences on Friday 14th October with two sessions starting at 12.00 noon and 6.00pm. The buy-in is £1.000.00 + £70.00, although online qualification is available through grosvenorcasinos.com and a series of live “super satellites” which are incorporated into the side event schedule and will also run in the afternoons at the Grosvenor Casino in Coventry throughout the week leading up to the Main Event.
GUKPT Coventry 2011 Side Events
This year´s side events schedule has been altered slightly to reduce the number of 2 day events which were a feature of GUKPT Coventry 2010. However, they are still worth participating in for the valuable prize money on offer and points towards the GUKPT Leaderboard competition.
Winners of the side events are also invited to compete in the exclusive online Coventry Champion of Champions tournament – a freeroll which takes place in the week after the GUKPT Coventry has concluded – and with the buy-ins for the side events starting at just £100.00 + £10.00, they are well worth participating in.
