Redtooth Poker Tour Joins Forces With Main Event Travel

The Redtooth Poker Tour (RPT) is joining forces with poker’s premier travel site Main Event Travel (MET) in order to offer players new packages for the upcoming tour dates. The RPT is scheduled to cross the UK’s network of Grosvenor Casinos, head over to Malta and finish the season in Las Vegas.

As a result of this alliance, RPT players will have the chance to play in events as a part of the Grosvenor United Kingdom Poker Tour Goliath Festival. The main event £25,000 GTD £75+12 buy-in, nicknamed The Big One, will take place July 29th at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Other tournaments at the festival include £60+12 buy-in RPT Tag Team and the £30+8 buy-in RPT Win The Button event.

After the Coventry stop, the RPT will head over to Bournemouth in August, Malta in September, Dundee in October, Liverpool in November and finally closing 2016 in Nottingham in December. After that it’s Cardiff in January, and the London Vic in February. Players participating in the 2017/2018 RPT are hoping to qualify to the Vegas100, which will have a £25,000 GTD prize pool. Last year it was Mikey Knight who took home the £12,000 cash prize and the title of UK Pub Poker Champion.

The partnership with MET caters to all the player’s needs and will allow them to purchase buy-ins, accommodations and tickets solved without any hassle.
