Organisers of the Genting Poker Big Game promised that the latest contest would be a biggie and so it proved with Patryk Slusarek taking the honours.
The Big Game's first ever re-entry tournament attracted a field of 42 entrants at the Bluff at the Genting Mint who were competing for a prize pool of £42,000. Slusanek took the lion's share of the cash, a cool £18,480, after outlasting a final table that included Nick Irving, Paul Byrne, Daniel Patel and Andreas Valhjalt. The Pole claimed his biggest live score to date after beating James Sullivan heads up, sealing victory when his top pair faded a flush draw and numerous chop possibilities.1st - Patryk Slusarek - £18,4802nd - James Sullivan - £10,080 3rd - Daniel Patel - £6,7204th - Andreas Valhjalt - £4,6205th - Paul Byrne - £1,0506th - Nick Irving - £1,050 It's a busy few days for Genting Poker with the opening event of the 2013 Genting Poker Series starting at Star City in Birmingham on Thursday.
