UKIPT3 Newcastle: Reed leads after late charge, McTaggart bubbles
Today UKIPT Newcastle had it all: a mass of eliminations, huge coolers, and a long bubble period to finish the day off with pure tension. Play resumed at midday with 273 players, and from the off players were flying out of the door. Day 2 is often seen as moving day as players try to build a stack and move up through the counts. The player who moved most successfully to end the day as chip leader was David Reed, who more than doubled up on the last hand of the night. Reed had [A][K] and got involved in a three-way all-in. His opponents held pocket jacks and [K] respectively, a king on the flop saw him eliminate both players and scoop a pot that propelled him to the top of the standings with 363,500.
