After an epic final day in Sheffield, Richard Milner has been crowned the 2013 Genting Poker Series Grand Final champion.
When the 17 day three starters had been whittled down to a final table of nine in just ninety minutes it looked as if the rail would be home to watch Andy Murray pick up the Sports Personality of the Year award. That rapid pace continued with the eliminations of Ben Vinson and Leo McLean. With the lion's share of the guarantee busting £262,000 prize pool yet to be won, play became far more cagey with another 90-minutes ticking by before Gabriel Tuna hit the rail in seventh. Dan Rowlinson was the next to go, unlucky to run pocket nines into Adam Picken's aces. After Nathan Davies exited in fifth the final four decided on an ICM-based deal, leaving £10,000 on top for the eventual winner. It didn't take long for the two big stacks to butt heads with Adam Picken's pocket aces good enough to beat the unfortunate Leon Campbell's pocket kings. Picken followed in third, losing a flip with AK against JJ which left Richard Milner and Rupom Pal to battle it out for the title. Milner started two handed play with an almost two to one chip lead but it took him the best part of four and a half hours to finally claim the title. A topsy turvy heads up battle saw the lead change hands no fewer than ten times before Milner prevailed with the clock approaching 3.20am. The final hand was a classic flip with Milner's pocket fours holding on to take down Pal's A10.1st - £40,086 - Richard Milner2nd - £30,462 - Rupom Pal3rd - £33,845 - Adam Picken4th - £30,747 - Leon Campbell5th - £11,320 - Nathan Davies6th - £9,220 - Dan Rowlinson7th - £7,130 - Gabriel Tuna8th - £5,760 - Leo McClean9th - £4,200 - Ben Vinson10th - £3,140 - Richard Kellett Image courtesy of Genting Poker.
