Though there isn’t much going on in the live poker tournament scene in the UK and Ireland for the month of November but there are a few events taking place but they are going under the radar.
We highlight the best poker tournaments taking place this month.
The 2018 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) will make some noise in November. The GUKPT festival is currently taking place in Blackpool for its eighth leg. The poker festival started on Nov 4 and will run till Nov 11. The festival takes place at Grosvenor G Casino, with the £1,110 buy-in Main Event offering £200,000 in guaranteed prize pool.

A week after the Main Event, the GUKPT Grand Final will take place at London’s Poker Room formerly The Vic. This Main Event has a buy-in of £2,140. Players can also take part in a number of side events throughout the tournament.
There will also be three Grosvenor 25/25 Series events taking place this month with a guaranteed prize pool of £25,000.
