Last month we brought you details of a pretty unsavoury encounter following a London pub game which resulted in one of the players getting stabbed.
The perpetrator of the incident, Christopher Barnaby, has been sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of attempted murder. The 27-year-old stabbed Lennox Peart four times following a game at The Beaufoy Bar, in Battersea last year.The pair clashed at the table when Barnaby asked Peart why he was taking money off the table when he hadn't bought in. According to the Surrey Comet, Barnaby then told Peart, “I don't want to hurt you barber boy.” The victim laughed off the threat, thinking that Barnaby was just drunk.When the pair left at around 3am Barnaby went to his car and grabbed an eight-inch knife, chased Peart and stabbed him in the shoulder, back, arm and abdomen. Only the arrival of a taxi driver who offered to drive Peart to hospital ended the attack. Judge Nicholas Price said, "Knife crime in this city and in this capital has reached epidemic proportions. It seems having one is seen as a fashion accessory amongst young men. I do not believe this was spontaneous as you had time to go to your car and get the knife." He sentenced Barnaby to life in jail with a minimum term of 15 years, with 250 days deducted due to his period in remand.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
