The cards used at Grosvenor UK Poker Tour will be Fournier 100% Plastic playing cards. Javier Berasategui, Managing Director of Fournier Playing Cards, commented: “Poker players are certainly one of the most demanding types of players. They fold the cards beyond imagination to sneak a peek, bringing a tremendous stress on cards. That is the reason we at Fournier craft 100% PVC Plastic playing cards that recover quickly their shape after hundreds of games. They are also more resistant to scratching than other PVC cards.”
Russell Tamplin, Head of Poker for Grosvenor Casinos, showed his satisfaction with having Fournier back in the tables of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour. “Our first partnership with Fournier for this event dates back to 2007. The highest levels of competition demand the highest quality cards. Not only players but also dealers and tremendously demanding with all the poker equipment used at the tournament so we know that with Fournier all the poker hands will be in the best possible hands.”
The final event of the 2019 GKUPT will be the GKUPT Grand Final, which will take place from 18th November through 1st December at Grosvenor Casino The Victoria London.
