Praz Bansi is in pole position to add another GUKPT title to his impressive tournament CV as we head into the final table.
The Londoner will go into today's final table with a large chip lead after winning a huge pot with what turned out to the final hand of Saturday. Bansi tangled with fellow big stack Dave Rudling with all the chip going in on a 7c8c9s board. Bansi revealed 10hJh for a straight with Rudling well behind but still hopeful with AcQc for the nut flush draw. The turn and river were blanks though leaving Rudling as the final table bubble boy and Bansi nursing a monster stack.A number of other notables have also made it through to the final ten including former GUKPT winners Jeff Kimber and Karl Mahrenholz as well as 2009 WSOP Main Event in the money finisher Jamie Roberts.All ten finishers are guaranteed at least £5,510 with the winner walking away with £101,020. The action resumes at 2pm today. The chip counts when play resumes are as follows:Praz Bansi 1,281,000Gary Lindsay 842,000Chris Kyriacou 412,000Manig Loeser 340,000Karl Mahrenholz 317,500Jim Dunsfield 190,500Ken Wong 110,000Jamie Roberts 109,500Jeff Kimber 79,500
