Boatman & Beevers Amongst GUKPT Final Leaders

Boatman & Beevers Amongst GUKPT Final Leaders

Saturday, 29 November 2014

Poker is said to be a young man's game these days but two veterans showed there's plenty of life in the older generation at the GUKPT Grand Final yesterday.

Hendon Mobsters Barny Boatman (103,400) and Joe Beevers (93,400) closed Day 1B in third and ninth respectively after a busy day at the Vic.

The man to beat heading into day 2 is Juan Perez Benito who bagged up an impressive 213,200 by the close. There's plenty of top British and European talent still in the hunt for a bumper pre-Christmas payday including Jamie Roberts (81,600), Tamer Kamel (72,300), Neil Channing (29,200), Stuart Rutter (24,300), Chris Moorman (16,100).

The 59 day 1b survivors will join the 36 who made it through on Thursday to battle it out for a massive £424,000 prize pool. Sunday's winner is set to walk away with £122,900.

The action resumes at 1pm.
