25 left in WPT £5,300 Devilfish Cup at Dusk Till Dawn

By Mad Harper

Just 25 players remain in the inaugural WPT Devilfish Cup at Dusk Till Dawn. There were 161 entries with the top 20 getting a share of the £1,020,000 prize pool. The winner will get £250,000 along with a special BMG guitar signed by Queen lead guitarist Brian May.

Peter Roche leads; others still in include tennis legend and three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker (pictured right), UK veteran Barny Boatman and the UK’s #1 tournament player Sam Trickett (who says he hasn’t played a tourney in over a year). Action will resume at 2 p.m. UK time today. The £5,300 buy-in event includes a £300 donation. All donations, plus 3% of the prize pool, will be split between the Marie Curie charity and a trust fund for Ulliott’s daughter Lucy.

The £2,200 Main Event starts today. Last season’s partypoker WPT UK Main Event attracted a field of 450 entries with Iaron Lightbourne beating Craig McCorkell heads-up to win the title and £200,000.
