Lee Taylor Takes GUKPT Lead

Lee Taylor Takes GUKPT Lead

Friday, 30 January 2015

As expected, the second opening flight of the GUKPT London Main Event at The Poker Room attracted a bumper cast list, with Lee Taylor taking control by the close.

Taylor bagged up an impressive 142,100 which makes him the overall leader, just ahead of day 1a pacesetter Leon Louis (140,500).

A total of 179 runners rook to the tables yesterday. Add in the 110 from Thursday's opening flight and it means a guarantee-busting prize pool of £289,000.

Well placed for bagging a share of it are the likes of Cai Cai Huang, Willie Tann, Ross Boatman and Carlo Citrone who all closed day 1B with above average stacks.

103 players will resume battle this lunchtime. Railbirds will be able to follow all the action courtesy of the GUKPT Livestream with live coverage, including commentary and holecards, starting at 1.30pm.
