Gilles Augustus eliminated

Gilles Augustus eliminated

Tuesday, 5 October 2010

Well, with that the UKIPT Champion of Champions event is looking overwhelmingly... well, UKish. Belgian pro Augustus was knocked out by Femi Fakinle in a big hand.

Obviously it would take a cooler to get the first elimination underway - with 250BB starting stacks this STT was no turbo shovefest and the players knew that. Aces versus kings was the decider.

We caught up with some pre-flop action that saw Nick Risk at risk (sorry) with a 4-bet all-in pre-flop. Big stack Fakinle mused over the call for a while before throwing his cards away and giving Risk a decent boost.
