The first leg of the 2011 GUKPT in Manchester has been won by Peter McAdams who scoops £58,100 plus the first coveted trophy of the Year. It was an excellent start to the GUKPT 2011 as players flocked to the G Casino to take their shot at winning a prestigious title, it was a close final table but eventually McAdams was crowned winner after a short heads up with 2nd place finisher Dan Charlton.
