It was another extremely busy day at the Genting Club in Sheffield with a huge field on hand for Day 1B of the latest leg of the Genting Poker Series.

Leading the way at the end of the second opening flight was Nathan Farnaby who had turned his starting stack into an impressive 341,100, almost 100,000 ahead of closest rival Oliver Bibby on 241,700.

All told, 123 of the Day 1B starters survived the day including the likes of DTD regular Colburn 'Rastafish' Tomlin, Genting's Ben Jackson, the Hit Squad's Chaz Chattha and Karl Mahrenholz, Sky Poker TV pundits Julian Thew and Ryan Spittles and Betfred Ladies champ Helena Brett.

Day 1A on Thursday closed with Ian Barnett in the lead on 236,100. Other notables who survived the opening flight and will be back this lunchtime include Joe Beevers, Yucel Eminoglu and Barny Boatman.
