Chaz Chattha - a man at peace with his game and his stack on Day 1 of the partypoker Grand Prix UK Main Event

With three Day 1 flights at Dusk till Dawn Casino as well as today's Day 2d, there have bee a number of big name players in the most popular casino in the United Kingdom.

Carl Froch is not just a four-time world boxing champion, he's a partypoker ambassador to be reckoned with, and the Nottingham-based man with the golden punch is up to 55,000 at blinds of 1,500/3,000/300. Elsewhere, London-based professionals Chaz Chattha (pictured, 94,000) and Charles Akadiri (95,500) have enjoyed more prosperous evenings at the felt.

Ugo Monye continues to 'try' again with his second entry, and he's been more successful at 'converting' his chances since doing so, 'chipping and charging' to 95,000.

Tom Waters (180,000), Surinder Sunar (150,000) and James Ablott (260,000) are all extremely well placed to make Day 2 in rude health, while Kev Houghton (40,000, "Don't even tell 'em I'm here.") and Kevin Allen (20,000) will be looking to spin it up to survive.
