GUKPT 2021 Leg 1 London Day 2 Blog

Aleem Kanji Leads Final 20 – 00:15

203 entries started Day 2 here at GUKPT London, the biggest Day 2 in GUKPT History and after ten levels of play we are left with just 20 players. Less than 10% of the field!

The action has been thick and fast and we even had three all ins on the bubble! Michael Wharton & Daniel Crawleyboevey busted on the bubble and chopped up the min cash.

Aleem Kanji has made a few Day 3’s and he will be chip leader going into tomorrow. He has a small lead over Antoine Saout who has held the chip lead for most of the day. We have a great field and tomorrow should be fun to watch!
