Jones victorious at APAT Welsh Championship

Monday, 28 May 2012

The APAT Championship series hit the G Casino in Cardiff over the weekend for the William Hill Welsh Amateur Poker Championship.

In the end it was Andrew Jones who took the honours, defeating a 122 runner field that included former APAT Player of the Year Warren Jones and a former Welsh Championship winner in the form of Warren Johns.

Jones sealed the victory after a blink and you'll miss it heads up battle with long time chip leader JP Round that lasted just two hands. The chips were always going to hit the middle with Jones holding AK against Round's pocket tens with Jones spiking a king to win the race and with it the title, a shiny new trophy, a seat in the Genting Poker Series and a non-too shabby £2,750.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1 Andrew Jones £2,750
2 JP Round £1,940
3 Kevin O'Driscoll £1,210
4 Warren Jones £750
5 Jason Stephens £590
6 Jason Kemp £460
7 Dan Carpenter £370
8 Garry Wilden £270
9 David Jackson £210
