Genting Poker Series Breaks The £1 Million Mark

Guarantees Push Genting Poker Series Total Prize Pool Over £1 Million


The Genting Poker Series has announced that it has, this season, become a £1 million series due to both popularity and guarantees.

The first three legs in Birmingham, London, and Edinburgh saw prize pools of £146,000, £232,000, and £154,800 respectively, so this added with £500,000 in guaranteed prize pools in the remaining four legs means the total prize fund adds up to £1,032,800. Genting has guaranteed £800,000 of this total overall.

The last stop in Fountainpark, Edinburgh was won by Paul McTaggart when he topped a field of 388 runners. This was a disappointing turnout as Genting had previously predicted a record number of runners to best the 580 players who attended leg two in London.

The next leg takes place in Genting Club, Stoke between Aug. 1 and 5 and guarantees a prize pool of £100,000.

Here is the remaining schedule:

Aug. 1-5: Genting Club Stoke (£100,000 GTD)
Sept. 27-30: Online Leg (£100,000 GTD)
Nov. 21-25: Genting Club Sheffield (£100,000)
Dec. 5-9: Palm Beach Mayfair (£200,000)
