Recruitment consultant Mark Trett has 10,000 reasons to be cheerful this morning after winning the Coral British Masters Of Poker Tour final play off in Blackpool last night. Trett, who collected £12,650 for winning the Teesside leg of the Tour in July, earned himself a Coral sponsorship package worth £10,000 by winning the eight-seater sit and go finale.

Trett, who started the tournament as a 7/1 outsider battled his way through a field that included Jim O’Connell, Chris Brammer, Tom McDonald, Steve Holden, John Littler and Richard Lewis to set up a heads up encounter with Bristol winner John Gardner.

Trett, who’s been playing the game for less than two years, came from behind to defeat his more experienced opponent and add to what has been a spectacular year in his fledgling poker career.
