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.
