UKIPT Nottingham Day 1C: Alex Harriman Takes Overall Chip Lead

Posted on 17 April 2015 by "T".

Day 1C of the UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) Nottingham Main Event concluded around midnight on Thursday. Some players who busted on Day 1A and 1B were back for a second bullet (and third) but most players were entering for the first time. At the end of registration, 291 players (265 unique players and 26 re-entries) had pushed the total number of entries for the tournament to 469.

Londoner Alex Harriman (picture) finished on top of the 109 players who made it through from Day 1C with 205,900 in chips. This means that he currently is the overall chip leader after three of four starting days have been completed. Harriman was down to only 7,000 at one point, but 30 minutes later he had 120,000!

"I bluffed it off to be honest," the 24-year-old recruitment headhunter told the PokerStars Blog

Harriman finished the day with over 200k thanks to being on the right side of two confrontations with ace-king. In the first he bested pocket eights and in the second pocket sevens.

Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody wasn't as fortunate as Harriman. The triple crown winner entered the tournament for the second time (he busted late on Day 1B) and spent the day grinding before losing with Ace-King vs pocket tens in an all-in pre-flop situation. According to PokerStars Blog, he will be back today (Day 1D) to represent PokerStars along with fellow Team Pro Liv Boeree.

Other big names that will participate today include Tom Hall, Chris Ferguson, Deborah Worley-Roberts, and Niall Farrell.

This tournament has attracted a large amount if entries and the prize pool should be pretty significant. Great to see a British player on top and i look forward to see how this plays out

It's quite hard to keep track of this event with all the re entries and multiple starting days but Harriman went out and at the moment there are only 25 players left with most left being from the UK.They are now getting close to big money with all guaranteed at least 5k.

'Recruitment headhunter' is a ridiculous job title even if he's really doing a research job about future candidates for different positions, but brokering a job interview here and there and getting after candidates is really 'hunting'?
