David Ledden Leads the 2022 UKIPT Nottingham Final Table

David Ledden

The 2022 PokerStars United Kingdom & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) Nottingham Main Event has reached its final table, and it is David Ledden who finds himself in the envious position of the tournament's chip leader.

Ledden and his fellow finalists are each guaranteed £10,250 of the £582,000 prize pool, but one of them will walk away with the title of champion, a UKIPT trophy, plus a top prize weighing in at £106,270.

Day 2 started with 86 players all in the money, and there was a steady flow of eliminations throughout proceedings. Team PokerStars' Mason Pye and Benjamin "Spraggy" Spragg crashed out relatively early into Day 2, the latter pushing his last six big blinds into the middle with ace-four and losing to the ace-eight of David Johnson.

Fraser Bellamy bowed out at the hands of WPT500 champion Fabio Sperling, with Philip Clarke cracking Ali Sakallioglu's aces with pocket kings for a monster-sized pot. Clarke would later have his pocket aces cracked, although he managed to progress to the final table.

Others who crashed out included Rehman Kassam, Maria Demetriou, Charles Akadiri, Michael Kane, and Brandon Sheils.

Start-of-the-day chip leader, Dexter Turnbull, ran out of steam in 12th place before the high-profile exits of Robbie Bull and Jack Hardcastle ended Day 2.

Ledden is the man to catch going into the final table courtesy of his 4,015,000 stack. Ten months ago, Ledden finished second to James "Raggy" Clarke in a £400 buy-on tournament in Leeds for a career-best £26,080. A fifth-place or better finish at this final table beats that prize.

Dusk Till Dawn regular Adam Maxwell (3,495,000) returns to the fray in second place, with Jonathan McCann (3,495,000) rounding out the podium. McCann is full of confidence having finished fourth in the 2022 UKIPT Nottingham Super High Roller for £20,000 earlier this week.

Daniel Gormley (2,620,000) needs a six-place of better finish for a new all-time high cash, while Fabio Sperling (1,380,000) is looking to add a UKIPT title to his long list of poker accomplishments. Alex Montgomery (1,040,000) is the only other player at the final table with a seven-figure stack.

Yorkshire's Michael Howard (900,000), Philip Clarke (740,000), and Tom Simm (510,000) make up the final table but they are not there to make up the numbers.

Play resumes at 12:00 p.m. local time on July 31 and continues until only one player has all 17,460,000 chips in front of them. Who will that be? Follow the PokerNews live updates to find out.
