September 2016 news
Kenny Gee triumphs
A win for Ken George in a 21 player field saw him heads up against Peter Metcalfe with Nick Jeffrey coming third and Harry Mutter fourth. Special mention must go to our bubble boy, Callum Scott for his best performance so far. He also maxed with his first quads ever.
Eran bosses 23
Eran Pecael won on September 26 during his first trip to Phoenix Pub Poker, bagging £92, second Peter 'Pedro' Woodcock £69, third James Winfield £46 (whilst playing his season's joker) and fourth Kenny Gee £23. On the bubble was Kit Hinton.
Kit has a tiger in his tank for the new season
A million chips were in play on September 5, with 25 players competing in the first event of our Autumn Season 2016. This meant a prize pool of £250. Kit Hinton’s tiger card protector roared into action, whilst playing his joker to beat Peter Metcalfe in the heads up. They had already agreed to split the remaining winnings pot of £175, with £50 already won by Fiona Herron and £25 by Milo Lopez. The heads up was a tortuous affair, with Peter crashing to one 10k chip and repeatedly doubling through a series of all in wins and nearly reaching parity. But, Kit’s A9 was the final coup de gras. On the bubble was Nick Jeffery, who finished fifth. When the tournament got down to the remaining five players, he was in a chip commanding lead, with around 40% of the chip total. Perhaps a lesson in strategic folding until the bubble is complete?
