The GUKPT enjoyed an incredible start to its 2013 tour at the world famous Grosvenor Victoria Casino in London. With a buy-in of £1000+£70, players flocked to the capital to grab a slice of the £200,000 Guaranteed prize pool. After the dust had settled, 397 players had entered, generating a staggering £397,000 prize pool.

Martin Bader and David Barraclough were the last men standing, making a deal for Bader to take home £56,000 and Barraclough £62,000 based on their chip counts. They carried on for the trophy and grand final seat with Bader coming out on top. Barraclough had qualified for the tournament by winning a £150 satellite on grosvenorpoker.com, making his winnings just that little more special.
