The Genting Poker Series returned yesterday with Southend-on-Sea the venue for the latest leg of the £400+£40 Main Event series.

A total of 127 players took to the felt, boosted by 15 re-entries, to take the total day 1B field to an impressive 142 runners. Throw in the 16 online starters from earlier this week and the more than 100 players already registered for today's Day 1C and the £100,000 has already been reached.

44 of yesterday's starters will be back for day 2 with Will Messenger leading the way with an impressive stack of 254,900. Kerry Craigie is next on 206,800 followed by Fabio Esposito 159,900, Massimo Pomponio 157,600 and Steve Watts 155,800.

The Day 1C action starts at 1pm today with players starting with 25,000 chips with the clock set at an hour.
