UKIPT Day 1b - Strangeways Here We Come

Friday, 12 February 2010

Hello, good afternoon, and welcome...

After the flood of sunlight which swept through the city yesterday, Friday
sees Manchester revert to type. A fine mist of drizzle is coating the
Victorian facades in the centre of town, while out towards the G Casino, the iconic Boddingtons Brewery chimey stands with a thick shag of grey cloud hovering above it, standing guard like a benevolent, if slightly soiled, mop.

Today sees a thicker blanket of name pros making the pilgrimage up north for Day 1b of the UK & Ireland Poker Tour, with the likes of EPT founder John Duthie, Vicky Coren and Neil Channing, as well as football legend, Teddy Sheringham, taking their place at the fresh felt.

Blinds again start at 25/50, everyone will have 15,000 chips in front of them, and each level will last a nerve-fraying hour.
