Fintan Gavin tops UKIPT Cork Day 1B

Saturday, 16 February 2013

As expected a much bigger field was on hand for the second opening flight of UKIPT Cork with 244 players trying their luck on Day 1B. By the close just 100 were left standing with Fintan Gavin nursing the biggest stack by bagging up time with 107,000.

Notables to make it through the day included Julian Thew, fresh from his Genting Poker Series triumph in Birmingham and PokerStars Pros Liv Boeree and Dale Philip. Their Stars colleague Jake Cody won't be joining them though having busted out shortly before the close.

A combined total of 158 players from the two opening flights will return to the tables this lunchtime, competing for a share of a €262,773 prize pool. 48 players will make the money with the winner walking away with a score of €60,440.
