UK Players Crushing Vegas Outside of WSOP.

UK Players Crushing Vegas Outside of WSOP.

Tuesday, 14 July 2009

When Roland de Wolfe completed his Triple Crown of WSOP, WPT and EPT victories, he was ushering in one of three bracelets being brought back to the UK this year. And with 3 players still in the hunt for a Main Event bracelet in the last 64, there could be another to add to that list.

However, outside of the WSOP there have been a veritable plethora of British pros winning some of the smaller, three-figure buy-in events at other casinos. Mad Marty Wilson kicked off proceedings when he won the $150 No Limit Event of the 3rd Annual Binions Poker Classic for over $9,000.

The Caesars Palace Mega Stack Series was a good venue for the fortunes of UK Players, as Dennis Clough of Wakefield won a $300 event for $9,000. Paul Brammar and Adrian Pollard are two other UK players who won $300 events in this festival, for impressive scores of $17,000 and $14,000 respectively.

Richard Trigg scored over $40,000 for his second-place finish in a $1,000 buy-in event and Jon Kalmar managed 4th place in a $500 PLO event for $19,000.
