Day 1A of the PokerStars UK & Ireland Poker Tour Dublin attracted an impressive field of 285 players. The penultimate leg of the UKIPT tour has a £250,000 guarantee and it looks almost certain to be eclipsed, as even more players are expected for day 1B today.
80 players made it into day 2 and overnight chip leader is PokerStars qualifier Nik Kamal who is in pole position with 122,500, just ahead of Patrik Kaltrud with 121,800.

Expected today are plenty of big names, including Team PokerStars Pros JP Kelly, Liv Boeree and Jude Ainsworth. Good luck to friend of UK PokerNews Rupinder ‘George’ Bedi, who will be looking to cement his place on the top of the UKIPT Leader Board and looking for his 5th cash of season 2.
