Welcome To Day 2 – 13/10/2018 – 12:30

Good afternoon and welcome back to Day 2 of the GUKPT Luton Main Event. Of the 304 entries we have 84 players coming back today to play another ten levels of play.

 

It’s been a great few days poker so far and that’s only going to continue as we get to the business end of the tournament.

Players will be back today with the blinds starting at 600/1200 with a 100 ante.

We will begin at 1pm.
