Another big win for Craig McCorkell

Another big win for Craig McCorkell

Monday, 30 July 2012

When you're hot you're hot and right now there are few players hotter than Britain's Craig McCorkell who is busting the temperature gauge. Fresh from bagging a bracelet at the recent World Series of Poker, McCorkell has now taken down the OnGame network's $150,000 Champion Chip tournament.

McCorkell, who was one of Bluff Europe's Brits to watch at the WSOP, worked his way through a field of 849 runners to pocket a first prize of $28,661. The WSOP $3k Shootout winner tweeted, “Won the Sunday major on ongame on a final that included the formidable @matfrankland1! Guess I'm paying for lunch this week #winsomelosesome”.

Paying for lunch seems a small price to pay for another fine performance.

We caught up with Craig just after his World Series triumph. Read the full interview here.
