11:33: Please keep the tweets coming today with #2525aberdeen. I really appreciate them and they help make the blog more interesting. Thanks again.

11:29: Here's a reminder of the Top 10 in the Fowler Ranking System (FRS). In Day 2 we have Thomas Ward (#1), Les Clark (#2), Graham Doherty (#6) and Ian Wright (#10) remaining. Maybe there is something to the system after all? The comments beside each player are the personal opinions of FRS creator, Lewis Fowler.

(1) Thomas Ward - Biggest live casher and most consistent casher of all time in the ukipt. Hasn't done anything for a while though. Oobviously partying too much.

(2) Les Clark - The Admiral. Aberdeen's very own all time casher.

(3) Martin Suttcliffe - Aberdeen's best cash player whether live or online.

(4) Andrew Moore - Chopped the sunday million on stars 3 ways and played on for the rest finishing 3rd. Also had lots of other decent cashes online and 3rd in the Dundee Masters but doesn't get to play as much nowadays as working abroad a lot.

(5) Boaby Jardine - Binked one 25/25 and final tabled 3 others.

(6) Graham Doherty - Doesn't play as much live as he used to but was player of the summer series festival in Aberdeen and some decent online cashes over the years.

(7) Alex Ferguson - Crushed the 25/25 last time it was in Aberdeen. Also one of the biggest movers up the FRS after that result. Doesn't seem to be spewing his stack off or getting upset these days. Mst be chilling out with old age.

(8) Murray John Pauline - Doesn't play a lot but when he played the old Gala casino in Aberdeen he said "no deal" on final table so respect there and that was only his 3rd live tourney. Also was down in the Genting the other week and cashed plus he is the Aberdeen G Casino Manager and gives me everything for free. That alone is worth top 10 entry for looking after his punters.

(9) Mindaugas Kriauciunas - Very solid and consistent casher. Just doesn't seem to be able to get a first place unless it's a weekly night tourney in Aberdeen.

(10) Ian Wright - Very aggressive on the tables. Hates when you play back at him though. Got decent all round game.


11:26: Dennis Shaw fancies Dundee player Scott Maxwell FTW today. Scott has 2 previous FT appearances at 25/25 Scotland events and has cashed for a total of £4,120.

11:24: Raymond "Spike" Innes says he's currently practicing his winner's pose. What a GOAT! He has 1 previous 25/25 Scotland cash for £1,660.

11:21: 50 remain from the 176 that started. 15 places paid with £10,570 for 1st. Who do you fancy to take it down? Please comment below.

11:20: Day 2 seat draw:
