Richard Sinclair is UKIPT Champion of Champions

Monday, 5 December 2011

Richard Sinclair has earned himself a freeroll for the duration of season three of the PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) after winning the end of year Champion of Champions sit and go on Saturday.

The eight Main Event winners on the 2011 UKIPT battled it out at Dusk Till Dawn on Saturday for the special one table event with buy-ins and accommodation for all season three UKIPT events on offer to the winner.

Sinclair, who won UKIPT Newcastle in June, worked his way through a table that included Fintan Gavin, Gareth Walker, Chris O'Donnell, Joeri Zandvliet, Sam Razavi and Matt McDerra to set up a heads up battle with double UKIPT winner Nick Abou Risk. The Scotsman sealed the win when his A9 held up against the Dublin-based Canadian's K6.

"This means I'm freerolling Season 3 of the UKIPT which is great," the winner told the PokerStars blog, "Cutting down on expenses and hotel costs is huge, I'm really looking forward to defending my title in Newcastle and coming back to Dusk Till Dawn."
