Norman Kwan beats 24 players
Norman Kwan achieved his first Phoenix Pub Poker victory on May 13 in a 24 player event. In the process of the tournament he scored nine scalps, over one third of the field! His game came alive when Jonno Cook pushed from small blind, holding pocket fours into Norman’s pocket kings. A short while later, he entered top table with an above average stack, but became chip leader when he knocked out three opponents in one hand.
Norman won £96 for his efforts, second was Jamie Cleaver, winning £72, third Peter Metcalfe £48 and fourth Barry Leadbetter, £24. On the bubble was Barry Freeman.
