When Coventry and the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) are mentioned in the same sentence, most people immediately think of the incredible Goliath tournament. In any case, the 2023 Goliath is booked for late July, so why expounding on Coventry and the GUKPT in February? Due to the presence of a mandatory tournament and a packed schedule of side events: the Grosvenor Poker UK Open, which has a prize pool of £1 million.
The inaugural Grosvenor Poker UK
Open will feature poker players from all walks of life competing for a hefty £1 million guaranteed prize pool at the Coventry Building Society Arena’s Grosvenor Casino. One reason you must travel to Coventry this month is because live poker tournaments with seven-figure guarantees are uncommon in the United Kingdom. The main event takes place from March 1 to 5, and the series runs from February 19 to March 7.
The 2023 Grosvenor Poker UK Open has a guaranteed prize pool of £1 million and an entry fee of £1,500 (£1,350 plus £150). You can choose from five flights, each with two retries, so you’ll have plenty of chances to build a stack as you try to boost your bankroll with a big score and, of course, win the champion’s trophy.
On non-turbo Day 1s, players at the UK Open exchange their £1,500 for 30,000 chips. They play to a 40-minute clock and have 20-minute blinds on the two turbo-structured flights. On Days 2 and 3, the clock increases to 60 minutes, allowing the cream to rise to the top.
Due to the re-entry format, it makes perfect sense to try to win as many £1,500 Grosvenor Poker UK Open tickets as you can. From February 19 to March 3, when Day 1E Turbo takes place, Grosvenor Casino Coventry offers dozens of seats in a variety of live satellites.
Grosvenor Poker also offers satellites online
In a £110 buy-in satellite, three seats are guaranteed at 8:10 p.m. GMT on February 18, and another 10 seats are guaranteed at 8:25 p.m. GMT on February 19. Likewise on February 19, at 8:15 p.m., there is a £225 purchase in satellite that has three £4,000 bundles ready to be won.
Feeders for those online satellites that award packages and seats start at just £0.25. Imagine being able to turn 25 pence into a six-figure sum! At Grosvenor Poker, you can achieve it.
Even though the main event of the series is the Grosvenor Poker UK Open, which has a guaranteed prize pool of £1 million, there are also some excellent side events on the schedule.
The series begins with a £440 (£200+£200+£40) mystery bounty, which is certain to be a huge success if other tours’ mystery bounty events are any indication. There is likewise a £150 (£130+£20) Women UK Title and a seniors (50+), in addition to a £2,000 (£1,800+£200) Hot shot, and the £550 (£500+£50) GUKPT Cup.
The series finishes up with a £110 purchase in £20,000 ensured Web-based nearer occasion at Grosvenor Poker. On March 7, Day 1 begins at 7:00 p.m., and Day 2 begins at 7:00 p.m.
