A trio of players sponsored by Badbeat.com showed just how valuable having a backer can be after making deep runs at the recent UKIPT event in Newcastle.
Tim Slater led the way with a fifth place finish for £14,050 followed by Jonathan Gawith who finished one place lower and bagged £11,210. Ralph Watson, who has been mentored by Badbeat.com for less than a year, rounded out the trio with an £850 score.“The mentoring training made all the difference. It’s world class. You’re part of a team and the ethos of Badbeat and the large presence there pushed me to want to impress my peers,” said Slater. “It wasn’t my first big live tournament -- I’ve played most the UKIPT tour this year -- but it’s a prestigious event and I still felt the nerves kick in with two tables to go. The support from the team helps you believe in yourself.” The winning trio, like every Badbeat.com player, enjoy top notch coaching from a world-class team of mentors as well as access to extensive software and coaching tools. In addition to tuition, players at Badbeat.com can also get financial backing enabling them to move up the levels without risking their own bankroll.“We’re delighted that three of our sponsored players finished in the money, with two in the top ten!” said John Conroy, Badbeat Managing Director. “It really demonstrates that our training and mentoring system works for them, not only online but also in the field.”For details of how to become a sponsored player visit Badbeat.com.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
