Andy Peters wins GUKPT Blackpool

Andy Peters is king of the castle, well the sandcastle at least, after winning the GUKPT Blackpool Main Event at the seaside resort’s Sandcastle Casino.

Peters outlasted a 262-runner field to pocket a first prize of £72,020 defeating Ben (son of Paul) Jackson heads up. Jackson junior shouldn’t be too disappointed with his week’s work though. In addition to the £47,820 he collected for his second place in the Main Event, the youngster also took home a further £20,980 in the £500 freezeout event earlier in the week.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1. Andy Peter £72,020
2. Ben Jackson £47,820
3. Mark Physick £31,440
4. Rupinder Bedi £19,000
5. Dan Corbett £14,150
6. Paul Bracken £11,530
7. Mark Livesey £8,910
8. Jack Ellwood £7,200
9. Adrian Eley £5,420

The next date on the GUKPT calendar is the Grand Final at The Vic from 21 November until 4 December. The £2,500 Main Event runs from 1-4 December.
