A busy day of action inside Dusk Till Dawn saw Barny Boatman top Day 1A in the Sky Poker UKPC Main Event and Jeremy Nock take down the High Roller title.
Having sorted the wheat from the chaff on Tuesday, the £3,000 High Roller came to a close early this morning after an epic heads-up battle between Jeremy Nock and Zimnan Ziyard. The two British pros managed to swerve the advances of such luminaries as Chris Brammer and engage in a final showdown which lasted more than three hours. With £61,000 and the Sky Poker UKPC High Roller bracelet on the line neither looked willing to relinquish their chips but as the match wore on it was Nock who gradually assumed the lead. After pressuring his opponent to the point of breaking, Nock eventually scooped the final pot and the title with Td 2d. Whilst the High Roller was careering to a close, the Main Event was just getting underway and by the time the registration desks had closed a total of 187 players had taken to the felt. Despite there being two more starting days to choose from, the likes of JP Kelly, Barny Boatman, Boris Becker, Marcel Luske all took their first opportunity to shoot for the £500,000 prizepool (a prizepool which will certainly be broken). As the day progressed it was the aforementioned Boatman who would thrive and by the time just 76 players remained he found himself atop of the daily leaderboard with a stack worth 321,300 chips. That haul was enough for the veteran pro to finish ahead of a number of tough grinders, including Bluff regulars Paul Jackson and Jeff Kimber.Today will see Day 1B get underway with even more players expected to take to the felt.
