Toby Lewis's $253k score

Toby Lewis's $253k score

Tuesday, 20 August 2013

A holiday is usually a time for a bit of rest and relaxation but top UK pro Toby 'sexystuff1989' Lewis decided to mix business with pleasure with spectacularly successful results on his latest trip to Croatia.

The EPT Vilamoura winner added to his already impressive tournament CV by taking down event #35 in the latest Full Tilt Poker FTOPS online festival. Surviving on a shaky internet connection Lewis bested a field of 599 runners in the $2000 buy-in No Limit Hold'em event to walk away with a career best first prize of $253,063.

Lewis agreed a heads up chop with Clark 'snake8484' Hamagami before going on to seal the win and confirmed his triumph by tweeting 'Winners photo! Croatia! Tuborg. Some shit baguette. Golden!'. Throw in a further $1,608 score in the Full Tilt Big Ben and a last minute winner (and a record signing) for his beloved Southampton in their Premier League opener at West Brom and it was quite the weekend for Lewis.
