Tony G To Play Sky UKPC As Part of “Farewell Tour”

Marquee names expected to show up for massive prizepool.

The Sky Poker UK Poker Championships are set to take place from Feb 17-23 at the Dusk Til Dawn Casino in Nottingham, England. The televised Main Event, a £1000 + £100 buy-in freeze-out with an expected £500,000 prize pool is starting to stack up as more than just big money, but big names, including Tony G, promising to be in attendance.

According to DTD owner Rob Yong, not only will the prize pool likely hit £600,000 with the massive amounts of satellite winners, but it’s also attracting some of poker’s most notable European names.

Tennis god and Team PokerStars sponsored player Boris Becker headlines a small army of noteables that includes WSOP bracelet winner and GPI European Award winner Barney Boatman, Dave “Devilfish” Ulliot, Sensei Neil “Badbeat” Channing, Marcel “The Flying Dutchman” Luske, JP Kelly and UKPC lead ambassador and one of the best young players on the planet, the UK’s Sam Trickett. All of them are expected to be on the felt.

Maybe the biggest personality in the room though will be that of Tony G. Tony is reportedly planning on making this tournament one on his “farewell tour” of poker as he plans on stepping away from the poker tables and marching into Lituanian politics.

Will this be one of the last times players can be berated by The G?
