Poker Mob Flying at GUKPT London

Poker Mob Flying at GUKPT London

Sunday, 1 February 2015

Just 20 players are still chasing the £82,000 first prize in the GUKPT London Main Event with Charlie Combes leading the charge.

Combes, best result to date was a fourth place finish in the Master Classics of Poker in Amsterdam in 2013 for €59,004. The Englishman is well positioned for another deep run and will return with 618,500, a single ante ahead of Justin Sevilla (617,500).

The Poker Mob will have high hopes heading into Sunday's final with Barny Boatman (413,000), Ross Boatman (348,000) and Joe Beevers (101,000) all very much in the hunt.

Other notables hoping for glory at the Poker Room at the Vic include UKIPT London finalist Mark James (461,000), Viktor Ilyukhin (296,000), Sky Poker UK Championship winner Alex Spencer (257,000) and Polish pro Ellie Biessek (115,500).

The final 20 are guaranteed at least £2,900 with the final five assured of a five-figure score.

Spare a thought for Tom Dunwoodie who was the very unfortunate bubble boy after his aces were cracked by Niall Murray who rivered a set with his pocket eights.

The final table action starts at noon with the live stream, complete wth hole cards starting at 12.30pm
