GUKPT Summer Series 5a And 5b

The fifth and final instalment of the GUKPT Summer Series is underway this week, with the London leg held at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino getting a head start on Manchester by three days, and the parallel series kicking off on the 26th August.

Both historically popular venues, these locations will host the last deep-stacked Summer Series Main Events of the year before the GUKPT returns for its autumnal stages leading up to the Grand Final back in London in November. Giving a taste of tournaments to come, the London Summer Series 5 Main Event will be a one-off £750 No Limit Hold’em freezeout with a 12k starting stack and 45 minute clock – rounding off the five sets of summer tournaments in style.
