Overlay Alert at GPS Grand Final

Overlay Alert at GPS Grand Final

Friday, 12 December 2014

It looks like there could be a big overlay in the offing at the £200,000 guaranteed Genting Poker Series Grand Final in Sheffield this weekend.

After a quiet online flight just 68 entrants took to the tables for yesterday's live opener, taking the number of runners up to 87. That means 163 players need to enter today to cover the guarantee.

The man in pole position to take a big chunk of that change is Tom Deane who built up a huge stack of 316,000. He has massive lead over Ali Mallu (190,500) who finished third in the Sheffield leg earlier this year and this year's Sky Poker UK Championship winner Alex Spencer who'll return on Saturday with 173,700.

Twenty of Thursday's survivors made it through the nine levels of action. The full list of survivors can be seen below:

Tom Deane 316600
Alli Mallu 190500
Alex Spencer 173700
Trevor Pearson 173100
Richard Hawes 145700
Chinese Frankie 140400
Wadey Ashraf 122000
Lee Herridge 110700
Mark Elliot 105100
Ben Martin 99700
Matt Davenport 81600
Tom Dunwoodie 79000
Karl Guiness 51100
Ben Hall-Freeman 43200
John Bousfield 39800
Chris LeMarquand 39000
Trevor Reardon 36300
Greg Hunt 34200
Grant Wheelhouse 21600
Tim Hickling 19300

The second and final live day 1 flight is off at 1pm with railbirds able to follow the action via livestream from 1.30pm.
