The official figures for the Dusk Till Dawn £500,000 guaranteed Deepstack are in and it is great news for the players but not so much for the club. Day 1c attracted 455 players in total, which means the overall attendance for this superb event stands at 910. Those mathematic whizzes amongst you will realise this figure creates a prize pool of £455,000 and that leaves a £45,000 overlay for the club to meet; and meet it they shall.
Of the 455 players who made the trip to the Nottingham based club yesterday just 114 made it through to this afternoon's Day 2. They will combine with the survivors from Day 1a and 1b meaning a total of 220 men and women will take to their seats at 14:00 today and battle it out at the felt in an attempt to make it through to tomorrow's finale.
The best place of all these players is Mohammed Fassil who managed to turn his 50,000 starting stack into a Day 1c and overall tournament leading 680,500. Although the official payouts are yet to be announced it is expected the final 10 tables (90 players) will be in the money and Fassil should be nailed on to help himself to some cash with his huge stack.
Other players who will start Day 2 include Shane Gregory, Tina Abery, Shane Dewsbury and Sunny Chattha.
The money bubble will burst today so make sure you tune into UK & Ireland PokerNews tomorrow to discover the name of the unfortunate bubble boy / girl and to see which players have managed to make it all the way to Day 3 of one of the biggest live tournaments the UK will see this year.
