Welcome To Day 2 – 16/09/2017 – 12:30

Good afternoon and welcome back to Leeds for Day 2 of the GUKPT Main Event.

The event has been extremely busy with 308 entries in total over the two days of registration.

There are 99 players making their way back today for the second days play where we will be playing another 9 levels of play. Eddie Swales leads the players coming back with a huge stack of 184,000.

30 places will be played, with the min cash being £1100, hopefully that bubble will burst tonight. The player who wins the last hand of the tournament will take home £42,550!!

We will be starting todays play at 1pm and we’re looking forward to a fantastic days play.
