Day 2 at the UK & Ireland Poker Tour Isle Of Man was played out last night as the 161 players that had survived thus far were brought back to the tables to get through another batch of levels in order to get themselves into Day 3.
Just 30 players managed that achievement with Duncan McClellan topping them all with 870,000 chips. He put in a dominant display on the day that sees him 300k in front of PokerStars Team Pro Fatima Moreira de Melo in second place on 573,000.
She was not the only Team PokerStars pro that advanced as Barry Greenstein also managed to negotiate the bubble and make it into Day 3 with 211,000.
End of day 2. 30 left. Average is 240k. I have 210k. 35BB #UKIPT

The rest of the team could not get through though as Liv Boeree, Leo Margets, Dale Phillip and Jake Cody all floundered throughout the day. They were also joined on the rail by the likes of Max Silver, Julien Thew, Martins Adeniya, Sam Grafton, David Yan and Dominik Nitsche.
