UKIPT Nottingham Is Underway

Max LadbrokePokerStars' UK and Ireland Poker Tour is currently in Nottingham, Robin Hood's land in the heard of England. So far two of four starting days of the £1,00,000 Guaranteed Main Event are in the books. Day 1A saw 50 entries (40 players and 10 re-entries) and Day 1B 128 entries (115 players, 13 re-entries).

The latter, Day 1B, lasted for over 10 levels until the field had been narrowed down to 48 players. Amongst the survivors no one's stack could match Max Ladbroke who managed to accumulate 190,900 in chips (about 20k more than Day 1A chip leader Sunil Pancholi).

"I won a big flip with queens against ace-king," the 23 year-old politics student told the PokerStars Blog at the end of play. "I'm a terrible poker player, this is ten times bigger than the biggest event I've ever played. I'm definitely a fish on a heater," he added.

Team PokerStars Pro was represented on Day 1B by Jake Cody. Although Cody had a great start to the tournament and had 67,000 at one point, he ended up busting out shortly after losing a big pot to Simon Higgins. Cody was left with 14k after losing the big pot, and ultimately never managed to to pull off a comeback.

In total, 63 players of 178 entries are through to Day 2 so far. There's a long way to go though, given that another two starting days are in the pipeline. Check back tomorrow for another update.

There seems to be a lot of tournaments going on at Nottingham lately and the prizepools are getting bigger and bigger.I know party poker have been having loads of satellites for this event so maybe that accounts for a lot of the little known names who are in the competition.

I am sorry to go a bit away out of contest at first, but isn't this tournament's name too looked like another UKIP that's being talked about around the island? Can this be some kind of undercovered campaign? Don't judge me bad, i just read about UK elections and this got to my mind instantly when i started reading this news. Anyway, those 63 will still have a lot to fight for if they want to gather some extra pounds.

Alex Harriman topped the 109 survivors from Day 1C with a massive 205,900 in chips. What's more remarkable is that he was as low as 7,000 before spinning it up to 120,000 within 30 minutes. "I bluffed it off to be honest,"The Londoner has been playing poker for four years, but having only recently switched to tournaments this is his first Main Event. Only time will tell if today proves to be 'beginners' luck.

Great to see these tournaments going on in the UK and its nice to see such a healthy amount of entries as well. Love the chip leaders quote that he is 'a fish on a heater', good luck to him and to all those left in

LeL at Fakiry, there is no need to find conspiracies everywhere in life, this tour is older than that party anyway. And that party just got rused at the elections so no need to be mistifying them...
