This Sunday sees the start of my local GUKPT Festival, at the Brighton “G” Casino. the £50,000 guaranteed Main Event is planned to start on Thursday the 25th, and will cost you £500 +£50 to enter. Satellites will be running from Sunday onwards, starting from £30.
Unfortunately, I won’t be attending this year as I am off to visit family that week, but please enjoy the town, feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about the city.
Dusk Till Dawn’s last Deep Stack of the Summer
Duks Till Dawn is one of the UK’s foremost Poker Venues, and has been running the £50,000 Guaranteed, £100 buy in Deepstack series since the guys got back from running the ISPT event at Wembley. According to the Director of Poker, Simon Trumper, this is the last week this event will be running this summer:
Congrats to @Gil3000_Poker for winning the £100 Deepstack for £12,500! The last £100 Deepstack of the summer series is running this week!!

UKIPT Galway Satellites still available
The Galway UKIPT is expected to be the biggest Poker Festival ever in Europe, and the Main Event has been given a €1,000,000 guarantee. There is also a full schedule of side events, and a Horse Racing Festival in the mix as well.
You can qualify for the main event on Full Tilt Poker, or PokerStars from as little as $0.11.
If you qualify on Full Tilt, you also stand a chance to win a sponsorship deal for the rest of the UKIPT season, just by being the last Full Tilt qualifier standing.
WSOP Round up
The WSOP is coming to a close in Las Vegas, and with no UK players still in the Main Event, it’s probably time to give a round up of how the UK did in this year’s series.
We have three new UK Bracelet winners, headed by UK Poker Legend Barny Boatman, who won the $1,500 NLHE Event #49 for $546,080.
Matt Perrins took down Event #57, the $5,000 No Limit Hold’em Event and Matthew Ashton didn’t just win the $50,000 Players’ Championship, he picked up a 7th place in Event #23, a 3rd place in Event #5 and came runner up in Event #13.
David Vamplew also had a good series, and picked up two runner up spots in Events #2 and #53. He also cashed in 16th in Event #45.
While it wasn’t a great series for the UK, we did at least pick up three times as many bracelets as we did last year, so that has to be a bonus.
