If things weren’t already serious in the 2014 partypoker WPT500 UK before then they are now because only 61 players remain in the hunt for the £140,000 first place prize, a prize that is awarded today!
Leading the 61 surviving players is the man who topped the Day 1e chip counts, Dahe Liu. While others were busting left, right and centre, Liu was building his stack into a tournament leading pile worth 2,470,000 and he now has a legitimate chance of winning a potentially life-changing sum of money.
Hot on the heels of Liu is the American superstar David Peters and his 2,445,000 chips. Peters is in the United Kingdom for the upcoming World Poker Tour UK Main Event, but jumped into the WPT500 to take advantage of the huge value on offer. It’s been a great decision to do so because he’s now guaranteed a return on his investment and could be adding £140,000 to his $8.6 million of tournament winnings!
