David Vamplew wins EPT London 2010

Monday, 4 October 2010

David Vamplew, who survived a brutally long heads-up battle with John Juanda by miraculous rivers when his stack was low, had his Weetabix at the last break. He came back and began to dominate proceedings, wearing Juanda down until the last all-in.

Vamplew wound up with A-3 against Juanda's K-2 when the four-time WSOP bracelet-winner moved in with ten big blinds. It held and that was that, all over with Vamplew the victor and £900,000 richer.

Of course, Juanda still can consider London a lucky city with a £545,000 result to add to his EPT High Roller runner up last year and his WSOPE victory the year before but he was gunning for the title. Throughout the final table and the first two-thirds of heads-up play he was easily the better player but something snapped and Vamplew reaped the rewards.

Vamplew now takes the top spot on the Scottish all-time money list - admittedly not a competitive league. More importantly, he has his first EPT title and will return tomorrow for the UKIPT Champion of Champions event, which we will bring you full coverage of.

The final table payouts for the EPT London Main Event were as follows:

1. John Juanda - (£900,000)
2. John Juanda - (£545,000)
3. Kyle Bowker - (£300,000)
4. Artur Wasek - (£240,000)
5. Kayvan Payman - (£190,000)
6. Fernando Bito - (£145,000)
7. Tom Marchese - (£100,000)
8. Per Ummer - (£66,800)
