207 players gathered at the Vic over the weekend for the Grand Final of the Grosevenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) and in the end it was Leon Bui who was the last man standing.
Bui is obviously very comfortable playing at the Vic having previously finished third in the London leg of the GUKPT held there earlier this year. His feat this time round even more impressive though, outlasting a high class field packed with top UK talent. The final table itself was a quality affair with the likes of Hit Squadee Chazz Chattha, Team PKR pro James Sudworth and GUKPT Manchester Main Event winner Chris Brammer among the final ten. None could match Bui though who was left to battle it out with Nicolas Irving for the title. After a cagey half hour of heads up play Bui eventually sealed the £144,905 first prize when his pocket deuces held up against Irving's J9.Despite bubbling the Grand Final David Johnson also had reason to cheer after finding himself at the top of the GUKPT Player of the Year rankings. Johnson pocketed a £20,000 bonus in addition to the £80,000 in prize money he won after cashing in 17 events this year.Final Table Finishing Positions1st: Leon Bui - £144,9052nd: Nicolas Irving - £98,3253rd: Chaz Chattha - £63,3954th: Ash Miah - £37,5205th: Song Lee - £28,4606th: Martin Green - £23,2907th: Paul Alterman - £18,1108th: Andreas Afeldt - £14,2309th: Chris Brammer - £10,35010th: James Sudworth - £9,055That's almost it for this year's GUKPT.
