GPS SUPER SATELLITE WEEK STARTS WITH A BANG - 60 seats worth over £25,000 guaranteed

9TH May, Sheffield:  Genting Poker launched its GPS Super Satellite Week on Wednesday night when the first 5 of 60 guaranteed seats were given away in the lead up to next week’s GPS Leg 3 in Sheffield. In fact the satellite was such a success that the prize pool gathered generated another seat, totaling 6 given away last night.

GPS Super Satellite Week continues today through to Tues 14th May 2013 giving players the chance to take a seat in one of the largest and best run tournaments in UK poker. Last years Sheffield leg generated a massive £224,800 pot and the Super Satellites are a great chance to qualify!

“Genting Alderney’s Head of Poker, Gary Oakes is excited about Super Satellite week and GPS Leg 3 – “This is the first time we’ve embarked on such a satellite week, and the early indications are that players love it! We are hopeful of making Leg 3 in Sheffield the biggest leg to date, so get involved in Super Satellite week!”

Tournaments can be found in the Genting Poker Series Lobby and are called “GPS Seat Super Sat”
