GUKPT Walsall Day 2 Round Up

Posted by David Cowell on July 27, 2010 at 11:07 BST

The new GUKPT Legend that is Priyan De Mel cashed again in a Main event finishing a very respectable 12th place for £3100, It could have been a treble which would have been something pretty extraordinary, It wasn’t to be however but 3 cashes and 2 wins from 3 Main events is pretty amazing as it is!!

As it is now 10 players return today (Sunday 28th) for the final, some big well known names and faces are there including Mike Hill, Mike Ellis, Tom Mcdonald and crowd favorite and all round poker nut Ali Mallu. Praz Bansi made a deep run finishing in 16th and bepe Michael Greco claimed 18th spot for a couple of thousand.

The top 22 players made the money and the remaining 10 are all fighting for the first place prize of just over £57,000. It was Marc Goodwin who finished on the bubble with 77 vs A Q when i queen landed on the board. in total 39 players began day 2 24 coming from day 1b the rest from 1a. It’s now down to 10 and the big money is up for grabs in Walsall.
