Tuesday, 8 December 2009

Dundee’s Haitao Wu has been crowned GUKPT Champion of Champions after winning the season ending finale at Luton’s G Casino on Sunday. 125 qualifiers, made up of winners of GUKPT main and side events, online festival tournaments, APAT events, pub leagues and student championships were invited to the end of term freeroll extravaganza where prize money of £100,000 was on offer.

63 players made the money but none could match Wu. The winner, who came to the UK seven years ago to complete an MBA, outmanoeuvred a final table that included recent GUKPT Thanet winner Darren Annis, British Masters Of Poker winner Chris Brammer and 2008 GUKPT winner Ganesh Rao. Wu collected £25,000 for the win with Darren Annis adding to his excellent recent form with a £15,000 score.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1. Haitao Wu £25,000
2. Darren Annis £15,000
3. Stephen Spring £10,000
4. Christopher Brammer £7,500
