Twenty one players on January 14
Samantha Beaumont and Jack Petrou did a deal before the heads up started to take £73.50 each after a long battle across three tables. Callum Scott took the bronze medal position and £42 and Jonno Vulture Cook in fourth won £21. Our bubble was Rosario.
Sam beats twenty in bonus points week
A Queen Jack shove which hit a straight against The Vulture’s pocket six call when both players were low chipped in the mid stages of our January 7 tournament was the tiurning point which counted in Sam Oversock Beaumont win of our first 2019 event. When the play was four ways, a Ryan Tanner push with AQ was called by big blind Sam holding AK, which hit another straight for her. Now with 580k chips of the 800k chips in play, the two remaining players, Peter Burdett and Milo Lopez struck a deal for their prize of £50 each, leaving Sam to take the £80 winner’s total. Fourth placed Ryan took £20. Our bubble was Joe Coghlin again. An early bath for Catherine Diffey meant that Sam is our New Year Number One!
