In total 228 players sat down to day 1a of the UK and Ireland Poker Tour in Manchester, play was completed just after 3.30am this morning (Friday) after a 2pm start time on Thursday.
The G Casino in Manchester has never looked so good as it was completely packed out with a few famous faces and well known UK Poker players in the mix. Day 1b kicks off again at 2pm with around 246 expected to take their seats, these include Teddy Sherringham the former Man Utd Footballer looking to pick up another title in the City!
For those of you who are Manchester Utd supporters you could be sat beside Teddy or indeed Darren Fletcher if that’s what floats ya boat.
As expected this looks to be the largest UK Poker Tour of the Year and break some records along the way, the power of the pokerstars brand and the option for players to qualify onlne for as little as £5 make it something very few will be able to match.
