4.45pm: The many faces of Sam Grafton
If you've ever encountered Sam Grafton at a poker table you'll know that he's one of the more talkative players on the circuit and he's also someone who will show his emotions at the table through a range of expressions. Behind all that bluster is, of course, a sharp tournament mind.
Grafton's yet to have a really big score on the UKIPT, 14th in Coventry during Season one his deepest run so far. And he's struggling here in Bristol, he had 17,000 at one point but has slipped to 6,300. For now though enjoy this excellent series of photos our snapper caught earlier. -- NW
