Amy Trodd wins English Deepstack Championship

Monday, 7 March 2011

Amy Trodd has been crowned the inaugural English Deepstack Champion after taking the honours at the G Casino in Luton over the weekend.

The event attracted a field of 188 runner who created a very healthy prize pool of £94,000 but none could match Trodd who took home the title and £25,000. The Ladbrokes Poker employee got those little bits of luck just when she needed them en route to victory, cracking Paul Rodgers' aces with pocket eights then hitting a flush with pocket queens against Keith Miller's pocket kings.

An unlikely flush also came to the rescue when heads up against Pino Valentino. The chips went into the middle with Trodd holding pocket eights which were in very bad shape against Valentino's pocket nines. Running spades on the turn and river gave Trodd an unlikely flush draw and with it the maiden title.

The win is the latest in a line of good results for Trodd who won the £200 event at the GSOP at the International in September for almost £5,000 as well as enjoying a deep run at the £1,000 Monte Carlo tournament at Dusk Till Dawn in December.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1 Amy Trodd £25,000
2 Pino Valentino £16,000
3 Giovanni Amoroso £12,000
4 Adam Lawler £9,400
5 Nils Lafegod £7,000
6 Keith Miller £5,000
7 Jimmy Lee £3,700
8 Paul Rodgers £2,700
9 Ben Turnstill £2,000
