The youngster recently won the Oxford Cup Student Championship and returns today in the top ten in the chip counts with 221,000.The self styled, “xxxxing boss of the room” Erik Sullivan made it through to Day 3 with 76,000, as did other notable names Per Jacobson and Juha Helppi.The bubble will burst later today with 27 making the money. Play will then continue until a final table is decided. It could be a late one given that play will be suspended for the Champions League final.
