Will Fry Takes Down EPT Hungary

Will Fry Takes Down EPT Hungary

Monday, 3 November 2008

With Neil Channing not-quite taking down the WSOPE (unlucky, Neil!) and Devilfish apparently working harder on his TV show than his Omaha skills, it’s easy to think that the UK poker scene has gone a bit… well, rubbish.

However, one ex-casino croupier from Nottingham could help silence the naysayers. Will Fry, 28, took down the inaugural EPT Hungary tournament and netted a prize of nearly €600,000. He beat a tough field that included recent EPT-winner Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, former EPT London champion Vicky Coren, team PokerStars pro Katja Thater, and (as if she needs an introduction) WSOPE 2007 Main Event winner Annette Obrestad.

His plans for the money include paying off his mortgage, helping out friends and charitable donations. He currently works as a cash game player, although we have a feeling he might make a jump in limits after this score.
