Badbeat players go deep at UKIPT Nottingham

Badbeat players go deep at UKIPT Nottingham

Friday, 18 February 2011

Leading online staking and mentoring site has revealed that two of its players made deep runs at the record breaking UKIPT event at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham last week.

Both 24-year-old Mark Maunsell and Managing Director John Conroy earned four-figure scores after navigating their way through the 1,058 runner field. Maunsell joined the sponsored team in April 2010 and quickly built his daily limit of $300 up to $3,000 with the help and tuition of high stakes mentor Manuel Palanca. He was awarded his UKIPT Nottingham ticket after a highly profitable year with Badbeat.

Maunsell’s mentor, Manuel Palanca commented, “Mark played a fantastic game throughout his two days at the UKIPT Nottingham which sadly came to an end when his QQ ran into AK with the river bringing a King to eliminate Mark and put him in 70th place for a £1,585 prize. I’m still very proud of him for making it this far in such a big tournament.”

Maunsell added, “This was my biggest live tournament and although it was a little nerve-wracking, my whole game was pretty solid. I just played the two cards in front of me and took it one step at a time.

Maunsell will once again be donning colours for the next leg of the UKIPT in Manchester next month. You can follow the fortunes of all the Badbeat players who are entering by following them on Twitter (@BadbeatLimited), Facebook, the Badbeat Blog ( or at
