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 £72,0202. Ben Jackson £47,8203. Mark Physick £31,4404. Rupinder Bedi £19,0005. Dan Corbett £14,1506. Paul Bracken £11,5307. Mark Livesey £8,9108. Jack Ellwood £7,2009. 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. Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
