Wright on Top at GUKPT London

Friday, 1 March 2013

Day 1a of the first £1,000 GUKPT Main Event of 2013 saw a bumper field of 173 entrants at the Vic yesterday and by the close of play it was Marc Wright who was leading the way.

The Cornish-based pro closed the day with a stack of 113,425 putting him just ahead of George Trigeorgis on 109,450 and Wei Deng Wang on 108,400.

As expected, plenty of big names were on hand for the £200,000 guaranteed event with the likes of Marvin Rettenmaier 89,900 and Surinder Sunar 88,750 making excellent starts.

There's plenty of class on show further down the chip counts including Gary Jones 82,775, Neil Channing 74,225, Chris Bjorin 60,100, Karl Mahrenholz 30,100 and defending champ Robin Keston 26,000.

An even bigger field is expected for today's second opening flight which has just got under way. Join us throughout the weekend for updates.
