Day 3 at the UK & Ireland Poker Tour Marbella was completed not so long ago and it has finally brought us down to our final table of eight. The day began with 71 players and after another long stint at the tables for the players and plenty of eliminations, the final eight have been revealed.
Leading the eight is Katja Svendsen on 3,910,000 who could go on to break two records if one if she were to claim the title. This event is a shared production between the UKIPT and Estrellas Poker Tour and there has never been a woman winner of each of their Main Events. So in essence she could break both ducks in one go.
She still has eight players to get past though and although PokerStars Team Pro Jake Cody only has an average stack, he has to among the favourites to do just that. He flew back from the World Series of Poker especially to take part in this event and has shown that he is not in Marbella to just make the numbers up.
Made the FT with exactly 1.6m back tomorrow. Sam bubbled though 🙁

Unfortunately for his good friend Sam Grafton, he was the last player to be eliminated on Day 3 but will have to be satisfied with the €10,300 he received for his ninth place finish.
Sighs. Bubbled the Final in 9th. Not sure played final few hands great so not that disappointed. Thanks for all the messages of support.
