The 2010 British Masters Poker Tour got off to a fine start at the Gala Harbourside in Bristol over the weekend with 109 players entering in the £550 buy in event.
A frantic opening day saw no fewer than 89 players eliminated and the pace continued throughout the early stages of Day 2 right up until the final table. One man who kept his head while all around him were losing theirs was Dave Harris though. He started the day as the chip leader and took his overnight momentum forward onto a final table that featured last year's overall Coral British Masters champion Mark Trett.Harris eased his way through the final table until he was left alongside Trett, Tom Feilding and Dave Swan. A four-way chop was agreed with the winner taking away the extra cash. In the end it was left to Harris and Feilding to battle it out for the title. All the chips went in on an 8-7-2 flop with Feilding calling Harris' shove with 8-4. Harris revealed 8-10 putting him in a very strong position. The turn and river were blanks giving Harris the title and a very nice score of £15,910.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1st.....Dave Harris...........£15,910*2nd.....Tom Feilding...........,£9,000*3rd.....Mark Trett..............£9,000*4th.....Dave Swan...............£9,000*5th.....Rod Buckman.............£3,3806th.....George Stewart..........£2,2907th.....Antonio Pietragalla.....£1,9608th.....James Williams..........£1,6409th.....Matt Kerry..............£1,31010th....Vic Nosko.................£980 * four way chopThe Coral sponsored tour heads to Leeds for its next stop.
