UK PokerNews Roundup: Channing and Rutter Make Shootout Final, Bad Luck for Ian Frazer, and more.
Rutter and Channing Make Event #6 Final Table
UK poker is on a high after Praz Bansi's victory in event number 5, even more great news as Neil Channing and Stuart Rutter have made the six handed $5000 shootout final to be played later on tonight. Both men are in most people’s list of best UK players without a bracelet and both men are incredibly hungry to get that strap around their wrist.
The first prize is $441,692 but neither man will be looking beyond the bracelet tonight, Pokernews columnist Rutter recently revealed that his goal in life is to win a bracelet and both men recently made our top picks to win a bracelet at the WSOP this year. Both men also have experience in televised shootout tournaments so you would fancy a UK bracelet in this event is a very good shot.
We will be following all the action via our Live Updates today, we hope you do to, come on Lads, take it down!

Ian Frazer’s WSOP is Over
Amidst all the festivity right now, spare a thought for PartyPoker Pro Ian Frazer]. The TV tournament specialist is flying back to the UK as we speak after injuring himself in Vegas. According to his facebook page he has a trapped nerve in the back of his leg and is in the worse pain ever, what’s more the medical attention cost him $10,000. His latest profile update says:
"WSOP 2010 is officially over for me, didnt even get my feet under the table (as they say) done 10 bags in hospital fees and about a monkey in cab fares. Managed to get a flight home today and sitting in lounge now, the only consolation is i managed to get Upper. I just hope the pain killers last."
Get well soon Ian.
