April 2019 news

Simon and Peter share the spoils

Twenty players did battle on April 29. The top two, Peter Burdett and Simon Howe did a deal before the heads up, taking £70 each. New player Cameron Petrie was third £40 and Kit Hinton fourth £20. Our unlucky bubble was Lisa Meneres, who twice had to split large pots with Joe Winter after playing a superior hand.  

Winfield wins again against eighteen

James’s hot run continues with a fifth cash placing in six tournaments during the Spring 2019 season. This time he took home £62 on a three way deal with the joint second placings, Peter Metcalfe and Dan Bruncak taking £50 each. In fourth was Lisa Menezes winning £18. The bubble on our April 8 was Joe Winter.

Callum Scott makes a fine April Fool

Our April 1 tournament’s final action was dealt by Callum Scott, who could not resist a slice of the winning photo!

The fisherman nets a big catch again

Our Easter Monday tournament say 17 do battle. Fresh off his win the previous week, fisherman by trade and fish by poker standards, Dan Bruncak hauled a £68 win. In second was Raul Sassauran who had his first top table experience with Phoenix Pun Poker (£52), Milo Lopez in third (£34) and Jan Leivens fourth (£17).


Our bubble was Barry Rebuy Freeman.

Bruncak beats 20 and Bazzer’s 88 run

The result of the heads up on April 15 looked a dead certainty for Dan Bruncak who had an 80:20 dominance in stack sizes against Barry Rebuy Freeman, but his cards went dead for about 20 hands including consecutive pocket eights for the man from 88A. Parity had been restored during that period, but pocket queens for the fisherman flopped a set for Dan and Bazzer continued to bet with his middle pair of sevens. £80 winnings went to Dan, £60 to Barry, £40 to Orlando Lopez and £20 to Sam Beaumont. Our bubble was Bob Davidson.
