Mark Chantler wins Sky Poker Tour Final

Monday, 28 October 2013

Dusk Till Dawn was the venue for the sixth and final stop on the 2013 Sky Poker Tour with a total of a 204 hopefuls heading to the Midlands for the £330 buy-in event.

After two days of hard fought action it was Mark Chantler who was celebrating. The man from Cheshire scooped the title and with it a first prize of almost £15,000 for his efforts at the Nottingham venue.

After Matthew Simpson was eliminated in third place Chantler and Chris Canadine agreed a chop that saw the former guaranteed £13,985 and the latter £12,985 with £1,000, the trophy and the first place listing on the Hendon Mob database still to play for.

With the pressure lifted the rail could have been forgiven for expecting a quick finish but the pair battled it out an hour before Chantler ground his way to the title. The final had saw Canadine take a stand with K-9 which couldn't come from behind to beat the Chantler's pocket tens.
