Sin Melin Tops Genting Finale

Sin Melin Tops Genting Finale

Saturday, 14 December 2013

As expected, a bumper field was on hand for the second opening flight of the Genting Poker Series Grand Final in Sheffield yesterday, with 178 entries taking at shot at the big guaranteed prize pool.

By the end of ten levels of hard fought action it was Sin Melin who had worked her way to the head of the field (check out our recent interview with Sin Melin here). The new Full Tilt Poker ambassador will return this lunchtime with a huge stack of 338,600 followed by Yorkshireman Lawrence Gosney on 276,000, Mats Rosen 235,400, Leon Campell 229,600 and Jamie O'Connor 206,200.

54 players survived the second opening flight including Sam Grafton 144,000, Willie Tann 117,800, Ben Jackson 111,100, Paul Jackson 76,300 and Gabriel Tuna 61,800.

The combined entries from the two opening flights is 262, meaning a guarantee busting prize pool of £209,600. Props must go to Genting as every single leg of the 2013 Series has exceeded its guarantee.

Day 2 starts at 1pm today with 81 players battling it out for a share of the cash.

The overall chip leaders are as follows:

Sin Melin 338600
Shane Mossop 313400
Lawrence Gosney 276000
Mats Rosen 235400
Leon Campbell 229600
Patryk Slusarek 215900
