The opening day of UKIPT's 2014 schedule got underway in Edinburgh yesterday and by the time the 116 players had finished betting it was Leon Louis who led the way.
After carving his way through the field, the long-time grinder - known as 'Flippetyflop' online - recently reached the final table of the $10,000 WCOOP, but if he can manage to maintain his lead in Edinburgh he'll take home the biggest payday of his career. While Louis was sitting proud at the top of the day's 55 survivors, he wasn't the only recognisable face looking for domestic glory on Thursday. As the day wore on, the likes of Jake Cody, Rupert Elder, Ben Jenkins and Max Silver all had their moments in front of the camera but as the session came to a close not all would survive. Despite being the most recognisable pro on display, Cody couldn't keep hold of his stack after moving all-in with pocket aces against the J-T of Daniiar Bakchiev. After committing all his chips on a T-7-3 flop, Cody was able to smile until the turn gave his opponent two pair before the blank river forced the dealer to send his chips across the table. Also finding the going tough on Day 1A was Max Silver. Despite a blistering tournament run over the last few months, the Englishman couldn't find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and eventually bowed out before the day's halfway point. Day 1B will kick off later today and when the registration desks have closed the organisers expect the field to grow significantly and move closer to the £500,000 guaranteed prizepool.
