Frith On Top of Day 1b – 01/04/2017 – 00:20
Another day one is done here on the GUKPT Tour. As Day 1b of Edinburgh is now in the history books.
It’s been an unbelievable day with 157 entries in total over the six days of late registration. That smashes the guarantee as we finish with 227 entries in total, creating a prizepool of £113,500 which the players will be back tomorrow to play for.
The day has again been played in great spirits as is always the case at the Maybury.
59 players have made it through the day and they are led by Mark Frith who will hold the overall chip lead going into Day 2. Full counts of the remaining players are:
|Debbie||Taylor – Ackroyd||32100|

Play begins at 1pm, join us then. Or at 1:30pm which is when the live stream begins.
