The Gala Casino Great British Poker Tour (GCBPT) championship finals will be played in Bristol next week.

A buy-in of £1,500 ($2,258) is required for the tournament, which begins on December 1st and finishes on December 7th.

Whoever emerges triumphant will pocket more than £100,000, around one-third of the total prize pool.

There will be 200 entrants, which will include the winners of the GBPT festivals, reigning champion Joe Beevers and poker pros Marty Smyth and Neil Channing.

Beevers said: "I'm really looking forward to going back to the Gala Casino Bristol Harbourside and defending my title – the GCBPT is a great tour and one of my personal favourites."

The previous stop on the tour was on Teeside, where the main event was won by Anthony Arlott, who defeated James O'Connell with two pairs in the final hand.

Other places to have hosted the tour include Edinburgh, Nottingham and Liverpool.
