Howard Leads Final 16 – 30/04/2017 – 00:15

Another day of the GUKPT Main Event is now in the books.

It’s been an amazing day in a fabulous venue, where we have played another nine levels of play.

The day started with a bang as always with us losing 20 players in the first few levels. Then we had a real lull in action where we didn’t lose a player for a good hour.

The bubble was soon here and it lasted around 45 minutes before Gareth Howard give Mahmoud Abdelkader a bad one, which we upload tomorrow for everyone to see again.

Once the bubble has burst players got their money in, some survived and some bust out with a cash.

We have been left with 16 players with Howard leading the way. Full counts are:

Welcome To Day Two – 29/04/2017 – 12:01

Good afternoon and welcome back to Walsall for Day 2 of the GUKPT Main Event. 238 entries in total have been whittled down to 79 who will all be back today to play another nine levels of play.

Colin Paddington is the man who leads the way, just. He is in pole position going into today, but anything can happen.

We will be here with you for the duration of play today, bringing you live updates, chip counts, hands, exits and our Live Stream running on a thirty minute delay with all hole cards shown.

It should be another fantastic days play.
