Marie Sherwood wins APAT European Championship

Wednesday, 25 January 2012

Season Five of the Amateur Poker Association and Tour (APAT) drew to a close at the Rendezvous Casino in Brighton over the weekend with Marie Sherwood taking the honours.

Marie outlasted a field of 124 runners in APAT's European Championship event, pocketing a first prize of £2,780 plus a seat in the 888 Poker SuperStack event at Star City in Birmingham, for her efforts.

The key heads up hand saw all the chip go in on a board in which Jonathan Walker had turned a straight with Sherwood holding two-pair and a flush draw. The river brought the flush giving Sherwood a healthy lead, a lead she turned into victory a few hands later.
