Everyone expected the Nottingham leg of the PokerStars UKIPT to be a biggie and it hasn't disappointed with a record-breaking field and a massive prize pool.

A total of 650 players have bought in for the £500+£60 event making it the second biggest major tournament in the UK behind season 6 of EPT London. 277 players have made it through to day 2 where they will be competing for a whopping prize pool of £325,000. The top 72 finishers will all make the money with the winner set for an £80,000 pay day.

Birmingham businessman Amandeep Atwal leads the way followed by young Liverpool pro Joseph McCormick (pictured) and Marc Foggin.
