Lukas Daszynski was the prince of Wales this weekend after taking the Amateur Poker Association and Tour (APAT) Wales in Cardiff.
The Plymouth University student outlasted a 168-runner field to pocket a first prize of over £4,000 as well as a seat in a UKIPT Main Event. At one stage the London-based Daszynski was down to just a few big blinds after having his aces cracked by KQo but the luck evened itself out when the Pole reached heads up play with Alan Vaughan. The vast majority of the chip hit the middle on a K-3-6 board, all clubs. Vaughan revealed Ac-10c for the the nut flush putting him in front of Daszynski's K-6 for two pair. The turn was a blank but the river was another king, pairing the board to give Daszynski a boat. Crippled, Vaughan succumbed a couple of hands later but he could still be happy with his weekend, especially as he only took to the tables as an alternate.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1st Lukas Daszynski £40322nd Alan Vaughan £25203rd Dave Howard £15124th Bob Bulman £10085th Anthony Johnson £7566th Jon O'Neill £5047th Paul Williams £3788th Darren Moore £3159th Gavin Morgans £252 The next event on the APAT calendar is the United Kingdom Pub Poker Championship in Blackpool on 25th and 26th June followed by the Scottish Amateur Poker Championship in Glasgow on 30th and 31st July.Qualify exclusively at 888 Poker with a $400 bonus or a free £5.
