|6||Gerret Van Lancker||Belgium||1,010,000|
Foord-Brown is primarily an Omaha cash game player who decided to enter the Unibet Open London Main Event on a whim. Now he is on course to beat his largest live tournament score, which stands at $39,618.
Anton Kuznetsov of Russia is another cash game player who visited The Poker Room at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino, saw there was a tournament taking place and decided to take a shot. Kuzntesov goes into Day 3 armed with 1,600,000 chips and a realistic chance of walking away with a five-figure prize.
Others still in contention for the title of champion include Martin Gallagher, World Series of Poker bracelet winner Pavlos Xanthopoulos, 2016 Unibet Open London runner-up Bhavin Khatri and the talented Tamer Kamel.
Each of the remaining players is guaranteed £5,470 for their efforts thus far thanks to the money bubble bursting on Day 2.
The likes of Benjamin Pollak (58th for £1,700), Jerome Brion (55th for £1,700), Terry Jordon (51st for £1,920), Matt Perrins (34th for £2,410), Adrien Allain (31st for £2,720), and Kevin Allen (14th for £4,900) were eliminated during the penultimate day’s play.
Play resumes at noon on Feb. 26 and continues until a champion is crowned. You can discover who that champion is by following the action via the UK & Ireland PokerNews Live Reporting pages.
