Poker players got to show their charitable side in the recent EPT London series and in the process raised a tidy sum for Cancer Research UK.
There were a total of 646 entries including re-buys in the £120 EPT Charity Event with £10 from each buy-in going to the good cause. The tally was raised further by PokerStars' online players who donated directly to the cause with PokerStars itself offering the cherry on the top by agreeing to match all the contributions received. In total this amounted to £20,000 for Cancer Research UK.As well as helping a very worthy cause it proved to be a highly entertaining couple of days with the likes of EPT founder John Duthie, Bluff Europe columnist Nick Wealthall and top pros Joeri Zandvliet and Julian Thew in attendance.In the end it was Dutch youngster Arnoud van der Werf who took the title and with it a first prize of £20,000. The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1. Arnoud van der Werf (Holland) – £20,0002. Tim Hong Wong (Malaysia) – £13,0003. Salih Adem (UK) – £9,0004. Amir Sonsino (Israel) – £7,0005.
