UKIPT Edinburgh final gets underway

UKIPT Edinburgh final gets underway

Monday, 21 January 2013

Despite snow blanketing much of the UK, a bumper field of 612 players turned out for the Edinburgh stop of this year's UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) with Przemyslaw Dajer from Poland holding the chip lead going into today's final.

After three days of action a final table has been set with two notable faces in strong positions to claim the £101,000 prize.

Yesterday’s penultimate day at the PokerStars-sponsored tournament saw 41 players including Jake Cody hit the rail as David Vamplew and Jamie Sykes made their way through the tough field.

The British duo is well known on the circuit and will be two of the favourites when play resumes at midday today.

However, while Sykes and Vamplew have the pedigree, it’s Przemyslaw Dajer who has the most chips. The Polish player will unpack 2,083,000 chips and has the momentum going into the final session.

Overall, this season’s UKITP Edinburgh has been a huge success and yet another sign that the European poker scene is continuing to thrive.

Seat 1: Nicolau Villa-Lobos - 313,000
