Nottingham Becomes Richest Ever UKIPT Stop
In order to attract as many players as possible the UKIPT stop in Nottingham offered a guaranteed prize pool of £1 million for a buy in of just £1,000 +£100. The event had three starting days and allowed a single re-entry per player. The stunt worked and there was an amazing 1,223 entries to the Main Event to create the richest ever UKIPT stop.
At the start of Day 2 it became apparent that 183 players would be cashing out with the smallest prize an impressive £1,770. The winner of the competition will eventually walk away with a massive £218,300.
The majority of the players entered during Day 1C and heading into Day 2 the chip leader was Ben Miller with a stack of 264,000. At present there are still 331 players in the competition playing towards the final table and Miller is the leader of the pack.
Miller is followed by Jude Ainsworth who has 238,600 chips. Other players to make it through include Martins Adeniya, Dermot Blain and Dave ‘Devilfish’ Ulliot. Unsurprisingly a number of big names have already been knocked out including the WSOP Main Event winner Chris Moneymaker and the EPT San Remo winner Liv Boeree.
