UKIPT Dublin Day 1b – Silver Leading (vids)

UKIPT logo

Is there anyone is the world that is as consistent as Max Silver right now? Every time he plays he seems to make final tables or deep runs. The UKIPT Dublin Main Event is a true example, if he was to make the final table here it would be for the 3rd time in three years. Last year was the one where he did not make the final table but he made up for that by winning the UKIPT Dublin High Roller instead.

He was back at it yesterday in the UK & Ireland Poker Tour Dublin Main Event on Day 1b and he did not just finish the day as the chip leader but also with double the amount of chips of Marc Kennedy in 2nd place. He sits with 311,700 chips and is already looking like he will be the man to beat in this event.

There were 456 players that bought in on Day 1b to bring the combined total to 682 once added to the entries on Day 1a. By the end of the day,however, the combined number of players heading into Day 2 was cut down in size to 309. There were a host of PokerStars Team Pros taking part in proceedings last night but in general they had a bad day. Only Dale Philip advanced into Day 2 as the likes of Liv Boeree, Mickey Petersen and Triple Crown winner Jake Cody all busted out. Philip was happy enough to progress but he was also in awe of Max Silver.



We will see how Silver does on Day 2 when the action kicks off at 12pm lunchtime GMT. With there still being 309 survivors left in the event he has a long way to go just yet.
