A total of 615 poker players in total made it to Manchester for the PokerStars UK & Ireland Poker Tour over the weekend, now just 8 remain. Polish Mateusz Warowiec leads the pack with over 2 million chips. 2nd in chips is none other than PokerStars Pro JP Kelly, who has been amongst the top ten chip leaders for the entire tournament and will no doubt be both a fans and bookies favourite later on today.
Just behind him is a player who has been giving us poker media types something to chuckle over, Robert Angood, who has the best poker name since Moneymaker – R. Angood.
