The starting field of 763 at PokerStars UKIPT Marbella has been whittled down to just 42 with Britain's Chris Derrick leading the chp counts heading into today's penultimate day.
Derrick is no stranger to success in the UKIPT having made the final table at UKIPT Edinburgh earlier this year and he'll return to the Puerto Banus tables with a hefty chip lead. Derrick’s 1,017,000 stack put him well in front of closest challengers Ludovic Geilich (689,000), Miguel Abellan Hernando (669,000) and Lucas Blanco Oliver (648,000). Other notables still very much in contention include UKIPT Online Qualifier of the Year Dara O’Kearney with 536,000 and former Irish Open winner James Mitchell with 473,000. Today's starters are guaranteed a pay day of at least €3,110 but will of course be hoping for much more. Today's field will play down to a final table of eight who will be guaranteed €12,820. The eventual winner will walk away with €158,200.Chris Derrick United Kingdom 1017000Ludovic Geilich Germany 689000Miguel Abellan Hernando Spain 669000Lucas Blanco Oliver Spain 648000Jesus Arroyo Rodriguez Spain 602000Fernando Curto Gonzalez Spain 554000Dara O'Kearney Ireland 536000Stuart Burton McDonald Australia 528000Renzo Cambianica Italy 519000James Mitchell United Kingdom 473000
