The latest leg of the PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) drew to a close yesterday with Plymouth's Matthew McDerra taking the title.
The 27-year-old worked his way through a final table that included double WSOP bracelet winner JP Kelly and the gloriously named Robert Angood (who lived up to his name with a third place finish for £27,000) to set up what proved to be an epic heads up encounter with Poland's Mateusz Warowiec.It took six hours of two-handed play for the winner to be decided with almost all the chips going in the middle with McDerra holding a set of fives and Warowiec top pair with a king kicker. The Devonian faded the outs to leave Warowiec crippled and sealed the deal a hand later after hitting a straight.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1st. Matthew McDerra, United Kingdom £74,0002nd. Mateusz Warowiec, Poland £43,5003rd. Robert Angood, United Kingdom £27,6004th. Mick Fletcher, United Kingdom £20,3005th. JP Kelly, United Kingdom £16,0006th. Paul Nash, United Kingdom £12,6007th. Owen Shiels, Ireland, £9,5008th. Michael Birt, United Kingdom £7,200 Cork is the venue for the next leg of the UKIPT from 19th to 22nd May 2011.
