Everything hunky for Dorey at APT London

Everything hunky for Dorey at APT London

Monday, 30 January 2012

Players in the capital got to celebrate Chinese New Year in style as the Asian Poker Tour hit the Fox Poker Club over the weekend.

125 players bought into the £500+£45 event creating a prize pool £62,500 and it was William Dorey who took the lion's share of it. The 25-year-old Londoner defeated a final table that included Duncan Mackie, Surinder Sunar and Steve Watts before defeating Mark Karoullas heads up.

The final hand saw Dorey, holding a 2m to 700k chip lead, set Karoullas all in. It didn't look good for the leader holding A6 against his opponent's A8 but a 6 on the flop put Dorsey firmly in charge. The turn and river gave Karoullas no help leaving him to settle with £13,600 for his runner up finish.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1st William Dorey £17,130
2nd Mark Karoullas £13,500
3rd Steve Watts £10,000
4th Surinder Sunar £5,520
5th Stefan Wittmoss £4,280
6th Tolga Kuru £3,020
7th An-Tuan Hoang £2,400
8th Duncan Mackie £1,780
9th Alex Van de Weyer £1,150

The next major event at The Fox Poker Club is the regular £300 deepstack which returns next weekend.
