James Mitchell leads GUKPT Main Event

James Mitchell leads GUKPT Main Event

Friday, 26 February 2010

83 players started Day 1A of the £1,000 GUKPT Main Event in Walsall yesterday and by the close of play only 25 remained.

Top of the pile when the chips were bagged up was World Heads Up runner up and Black Belt pro James Mitchell who had amassed a whopping stack of 160,000. That's 60,000 more than nearest rival James Keys and over three times the average stack size of 49,800.

There are plenty of big names bubbling under too with Michael Greco, the Hit Squad's Karl Mahrenholz, Marc Goodwin, Stephen Holden and last year's GUKPT Champions Event winner Haitao Wu all very handily placed.

Day 1B gets under way at the Grosvenor Casino at 2pm with another 120 players expected to take to the tables. Join us later for updates.
