GENTING POKER RELEASES GPS III SCHEDULE
1 November 2013, Birmingham:
GENTING POKER has today announced the dates for the Genting Poker Series III (GPS III) with the inclusion of another leg at Dusk till Dawn in September making eight (8) land based legs to the popular Series.
Series II moves on to its ‘double money’ extravaganza at Genting Club Sheffield in December with £200,000 guaranteed by the sponsors, before the introduction of the new leg to Series II when Dusk Till Dawn makes its debut in January 2014.
Announcing the dates for Series III, Kevin Proctor, Poker Manager at Genting UK said; “We know people are anxious to have the dates for Series III. It was the talk of the tables at Fountainpark, Edinburgh last week and therefore we are releasing them earlier than ever before.
Our partnership with Dusk till Dawn goes from strength to strength and as such I am delighted that they will be hosting another leg within next year’s series in September. The club is tailor made to host a sensational GPS leg. Its location makes it easy for anyone in the country to get to and the layout of the venue is perfect for hosting a big field tournament and supporting some incredible side events and cash games.”
