Spinks and Fenton Enter Final Day of Event #49: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em
Time is running out for that 6th UK bracelet but as usual, there are plenty of Brits going deep in bracelet events. Over in Event #49: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 23 players remain and we will be playing to a winner tonight. $609,493 goes to the winner and representing the UK are prolific online player Jonathan Spinks and PKR Pro Karl Fenton. Spinks is currently sat 3rd in chips with 703,000 and been playing very well, while Fenton has some catching up to do, holding 368,000 chips. Also in the mix is Sean Prendiville of Ireland looking for that first Irish bracelet of 2010.

Plenty of Brits left in Event #50: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha
Another event nearing its conclusion and still with plenty of UK players still in the hunt is Event #50: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. As you can imagine it’s a tough field with names like Robert Mizrachi and Jason Mercier leading the charge, but hoping to overcome them are Hendon Mobsters Joe Beevers and Ross Boatman, UK Legend Julian Gardner, Niall Charlton and Yadin Shemmer. With 31 players remaining surely at least a final table appearance is in the books.
The first prize is $508,090 and you can check out the action via our Event #50: $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Live Updates tonight.
