After five days in the UK's steel city a new Genting Poker Series champion has been crowned in the form of James Parker.
The second leg of the GPS season saw another bumper field take to the felt in Sheffield but as the action came to a close last night it was Parker who stood victorious after defeating Richard Kellett heads-up. Overall the tournament attracted 400 players and on the final day 21 returned to do battle for the £35,000 top prize. As that number decreased and the likes of Gabriel Tuna and Steve Devine hit the rail a trio of grinders in the form of Parker, Kellett and Ali Mallu were left just a few steps from the title. After looking at their stacks and assessing the money on offer the three players decided to cut a deal which eventually secured Mallu £31,425. Having secured the lion's share of the prizepool, Mallu eventually fell by the wayside to leave Kellett and Parker to fight for the champion's trophy. A succession of pre-flop all-ins certainly made for an entertaining conclusion to the tournament and by the time the poker gods had picked a winner the final pot and the latest GPS title was pushed towards a jubilant Parker.
