Maksims Uskovs wins Fox Poker Club Main Event

Monday, 9 July 2012

The final Monthly Main Event in its current incarnation took place at the Fox Poker Club over the weekend with 173 runners on hand for the last £300 buy-in tournament.

After two-days of action it was Maksims Uskovs who had the most cause to celebrate. The Russian, who agreed a chop with Neil McCulloch, David McDonagh and Stanimir Milev when the field went four-handed, went to to win the title and with it a first prize of just over £10,000.

The defining hand of heads up play saw both players hold two pair but the Russian's pocket aces counterfeited Stanmir’s top two after the bottom card on the board paired. The end came soon after when Uskovs' KJ held to give the Russian a five-figure score.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1st Maksims Uskovs £10,090
2nd Stanimir Milev £8,800
3rd David Mcdonagh £7,700
4th Neil Mcculloch £7,000
5th Mia Liu £3,635
6th Tim Wong £2,855
7th James Koumis £2,075
8th Marco Vasconcelos £1,555
9th Nicholas Jenkins £1,170
