Welcome To Day 1b – 24/11/2017 – 12:30

Good afternoon and welcome back to The Poker Room in London for the second day two of the 2017 Grand Final. The biggest event of the year.

The tournament is a £2000+£125 buy in with a £400,000 guarantee! The guarantee is going to get smashed today as only 102 players are needed to cover it.

For their buy in players will receive 25,000 chips on an hour long clock, with late registration open for the first six levels of play.

Play begins at 1pm today and we will be here to cover the tournament, bringing live blog updates, chip counts, exits and of course the live stream that runs on a thirty minute delay with all hole cards shown.
