Christoforou heads GUKPT Leeds

Friday, 31 July 2015

The opening flight of the £100,000 guaranteed GUKPT Leeds Main Event is in the book with Andrew Christoforou the man to beat after a busy day 1a.

After nine levels of play Christoforou had turned his 20,000 starting stack into an impressive 283,000 which was almost double that of nearest rival Gary Whitehead who closed the day on 143,100.

A total of 95 players took to the tables at the Westgate with 31 of them booking their place for Saturday's day 2 action.

The most notable name among that number is Tom Middleton. The 2013 EPT Barcelona winner closed the day with 122,000 which was good for fourth place in the chip counts.

The Day 1b action starts at 1pm today.
