Portsmouth based John Murray has won the APAT UK Amateur Championship which took place at The Vic this past weekend.
The Irishman outran a sold out field of 150 runners to take the first prize of £3,500 plus a seat in a GUKPT Main Event. Murray sealed the win beating Don Roberts heads up getting that little bit of luck just when he needed it. The chips went in pre flop with Roberts holding Queens and Murray KJ. A 10-3-2 flop offered Murray little help but a 9 on the turn gave him more outs. Sure enough a Queen appeared on the river to give the APAT Solent captain a tournament winning straight. Roberts collected £2,000 for his second place finish.Murray is no stranger to APAT success, having previously been a member of the Irish line up that won the 2008 APAT Team Championship.There was plenty of action in the side events too with GUKPT Brighton winner Bernard Litman taking the PL Hold'em League event with Steve Maskell taking the honours in the Razz tournament.The next event on the ever popular APAT calendar is the Central European Amateur Championship which takes place in Austria on 15th and 16th May. If you fancy joining the APAT regulars (and getting some very handy sign up bonuses) then qualifiers are up and running at Betfair Poker.Image courtesy of APAT.
