Colburn Tomlin wins DTD Monte Carlo

Colburn Tomlin wins DTD Monte Carlo

Tuesday, 20 December 2011

Christmas came early for Colburn Tomlin yesterday after he took down the latest Monte Carlo event at Dusk Till Dawn. Tomlin outlasted a field 289-runner field that included the likes of Julian Thew, Willie Tann, Neil Channing and Jeff Kimber to pocket a first prize of £89,213.

Jake Cody and Black Belt pro Jerome Bradpiece were the big names heading into the final table but Bradpiece's appearance was a short one when he was on the wrong end of an aces versus kings cooler. Triple crown winner Cody eventually busted in 3rd place, losing most of his stack when his AQ ran into Paul Skipper's pocket queens.

Skipper held a 5.1m to 3.1m against the DTD regular and looked in great shape to seal the title when he was all in with pocket kings against Tomlin's A2. A miracle 2-2-8 flop gave Tomlin a huge chip lead though and he sealed the win soon after, calling Skipper's KcJc shove with 8d9d. An 8 on the flop gave Tomlin the lead but a King on the turn put Skipper firmly in control. A 9 on the river sealed the deal for Tomlin though who pocketed £89,213 for the win.
