The first stage of the GUKPT (Grosvenor United Kingdom Poker Tour Deepstack) with a buy-in of £ 500 finished with the triumphant of Allan Peers. The champ booted out Thomas Dunwoodle in the last duel and grabbed a victory in his very first live tournament.
Even though the championship only attracted 73 poker players, it should be told that the meeting provided a nice show. Remember that the poker participants were capable of playing poker deepstack having each during the beginning of the championship 50000 chips for stages of sixty minutes play. In the 1st qualifying, the game was quite slow. But Ruslan Vlasov, the Genting Poker Series champion animated the party. Unfortunately, he could not manage to reach the final table.
The prize money assembled was quite as not much as it was expected as it was only £ 36000. The organizers, therefore, awarded the top ten participants of the game. Paul Reilly was really the bubble boy in final table, but he was titled to the 10th prize of £ 520. Therefore, the last and final table of nine started with Andy Lambert as the chip leader.
Lowest stack holder, David Galo was the first player eliminated. CT Law and Darren Meynell also tolerated the similar fate, ending 7th and 8th respectively. Later, the chip leader fell in them. Andy Lambert was not capable to keep his vantage. Then, Mark O’Kane and Mark James left the game to end 5th and 4th respectively. James Marriot was given the bronze position along with a prize of £ 5380.
