The Betfred Poker 2012 UK Student Poker Championship kicked off yesterday in the fantastic G Casino at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry and saw a bumper crowd of 119 players take part in what is probably the best structure £30 poker tournament in the country!
Despite various parts of the UK having to endure blizzard-like conditions the organisers are fully expecting today's Day 1b, which begins at 12:30, will completely sell out. This means a Day 1b attendance of at least 200 runners!
The G Casino has been packed to the rafters all week thanks to the student invasion and last nights £50+£5 competition, run by the casino, was so busy that the £5,000 guarantee was completely smashed and the floor staff had to open an alternates list!
Today's Day 1b has a 200 cap though we believe an alternates list will be made available but your place in the tournament cannot be guaranteed. If you do miss out or if you bust out of the UK Student Poker Championship main event then the G Casino is running at £25+£2 freezeout at 20:30.
