192 players took to the felt for Day1A of the latest UKIPT Main Event at the G Casino in Coventry and by the close of play just 72 were left.
Leading the way at the end of the day was student Alexander Jackson who only qualified for the event by winning a satellite the night before. The 20-year-old, who is reading history at Warwick University, almost missed his big day after oversleeping (bloody students eh!) but was soon working his way through the leader board, eventually ending up with a stack of 116,100.The only other to break into six figures was Michael Lacey with 110,900. There's a big gap until third placed David Mobbs who has 73,600 with Chris Brice in fourth on 70,500.It was a memorable day for Bernard Maregedze too who was lucky enough to hit a Royal Flush. One hand doesn't make a tournament though and Maregedze proved it by busting out just before the close of play.Another bumper field is expected today with Question Time and Have I Got News For You guest and former EPT winner Vicky Coren and Jude Ainsworth both set to hit the felt.Join us from 2pm for live updates from blogger Carla Goddard.
