GUKPT London Day 1b Blog
End of Day 1b – 07/07/2018 – 01:25
Boon Leads 1b – 07/07/2018 – 01:15
After another ten levels of play, Day 1b of GUKPT London is now over. It’s been a huge days play with 227 entries in total over the 6 levels of late registration. Giving us 358 entries for both days combined and a prizepool of £179,000 for the players to play for over the next two days.
Surprisingly despite having nearly 100 players more today, our chip leader has finished with 100k less than the chip leader from Day 1a. That won’t matter to Rob Boon though as he has finished with over 160,000, which is a great stack for tomorrow.
Full chip counts are:
|Dinarte||Araujo De Sousa||33900|
We will all be back tomorrow where there are 98 players coming back to play another ten levels of play or down to a final table.
