As well as the big stacks there are some big poker names and familiar faces we will be keeping an eye on.
Alastair Akenhead described himself as the, “Chubby younger brother,” as he is the brother of well-known UK Pro James. He is currently 7th in chips.
Giovanni Rizzo starts with 92,000 chips a bit further down the leader board and he is the husband of Team 888 Ambassador Kara Scott.
Christopher Yong is another well-known player UK Pro who plays all over the world.
Some Aspers regulars who have had success at 888Live events in the past and are hoping to repeat that today include Gary Miller, Terry Jordon, Ion Albu and Peter Burgon.
