Rupinder Bedi takes the honours in this month’s Dusk Till Dawn Deepstack with David Sparks crowned London Pub Poker champion.
327 players gathered at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham for the latest £300 Deepstack event, smashing the £80,000 guarantee and creating a bumper prize pool of just over £98,000. A deal was struck with the clock approaching 1.30am and four players remaining. Rupinder Bedi, holding the big stack at the time was declared the winner, taking home £17,500. Former GUKPT winner Colin Wu took £15,500 for second with Tim Blake taking £15,250 for third and Oluwashola Akindele collecting £13,000 in fourth. The buy-in may have been somewhat smaller at The International for the London Pub Poker Open but the action was just as competitive as the 152 runner capacity field competed for almost £4,000 in prize money. In the end it was David Sparks who took the title (after a chop with Darren Abbot) and with it a first prize approaching £1,000. The Londoner also earned himself a seat at next Saturday’s Bluff Europe Black Belt Poker Academy.
