Wayne Rideout wins Sky Poker Tour Newcastle

Monday, 10 January 2011

Wayne 'Gliterbabe' Rideout has won the latest leg of the Sky Poker Tour which took place in Newcastle on Saturday. The Team Sky Poker pro outlasted a sell out crowd at Aspers Casino to take home a first prize of £4,500.

Rideout went into heads up play with Jamie Louise Barrett with a 2.5 to 1 chip lead but the underdog got back into contention after winning a big pot with trips against Rideout's rivered two pair.

The comeback didn't last long though as the chips went in on an 8-5-9 flop with Rideout revealing J-7 for a double gutshot and Barrett showing 9-7 for top pair and a gutshot. A 4 on the turn meant even more outs for Barrett to dodge as it added a flush to Rideouts straight and overcard possibilities. Sure enough the river brought one of those outs with the Jd giving Rideout top pair and with it a first prize of £4,500. Barrett pocketed £3,000 for her runner up finish.

The Sky Poker Tour heads to Luton's G Casino for the next leg on 12th March 2011. Qualifiers are running at Sky Poker with satellites starting from just £2.60.
