The United Kingdom's premier live poker tour, the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT), heads north for its third leg of the 2013 season, and you could be following it armed with a £550 seat to the GUKPT Stockton Main Event.
Kicking off on Sunday 5 May and running through until Sunday 12 May, the GUKPT Stockton leg will hold 14 tournaments at the Grosvenor G Casino, Stockton. The highlight of the week will be the £550 buy-in GUKPT Stockton Main Event, a tournament that you could be playing in for free, thanks to a PokerNews-exclusive freeroll on Sunday, 28 April.
No, PokerNews hasn’t gone mad. We really are offering you the chance to play for free in the GUKPT Stockton Main Event. All you need to do is download the excellent Grosvenor Poker software through PokerNews and you will be able to enter a PokerNews-exclusive freeroll that will see the eventual winner walk away with a ticket worth £550 that can be used to buy into GUKPT Stockton – or any other £550 GUKPT Main Event of your choice.
In addition to the GUKPT Freeroll #1 champion bagging themselves a £550 ticket, the players who finish in second place through to seventh place will each be awarded. We’re sure you will agree that this is an amazing offer.
But wait, because the offer gets even better! New customers who download Grosvenor Poker and make their first real-money deposit will be rewarded with a 100% match up to $500 first-deposit bonus, making this deal potentially very profitable.
Last season's GUKPT Stockton Main Event saw a compat field of 73 entrants battle for a share of the £36,500 prize pool. The winner last year was Allan Peers, who won the title and the £11,000 first-place money. This season's prize pool is guaranteed to be at least £50,000, meaning the eventual champion will be taking home even more cash.
