The GUKPT caravan swung into the Black Country over the weekend and after three-days of action it was Ben Winsor who was celebrating.
Winsor made the final table in the last GUKPT stop and went even better this time round after outlasting a 196-runner field in Walsall.12 players started the final day with the short stacked Andrew Probyn the first of them to hit the rail. He was followed soon after by 18-year-old George Lakin whose £1,600 pay day marked a fine, live tournament debut.Winsor's tournament really started to roll when he flopped a set of deuces to crack Ian Bradley's kings. The momentum continued as he doubled up again with pocket aces against Mo Qureshi's pocket jacks.Andy Garland also succumbed to the red-hot Winsor whose kings prevailed against the former's jacks. Winsor wasn't the only player building a stack though. UK tournament reg Simon Deadman was doing his beat to derail the Winsor express and he looked well place to do so after eliminating Maaz Bako in third. Deadman went into heads up play with a 2.8m to 1.1m chip lead but the pendulum soon swung in Winsor's favour on a A-K-8-6-5 board with Ben's A8 beating Simon's A6.With the stacks almost level the pair agreed a chop with £1,000 and the Grand Final seat on top with Winsor getting the lot when his AJ held against Deadman's A10.The final table positions and payouts were as follows:1st – £24,500 – Ben Winsor2nd – £23,500 – Simon Deadman3rd – £11,900 – Maz Bako4th – £7,800 – Tony Harman5th – £5,400 – Michael Hart6th – £3,900 – Don Jones7th – £3,200 – Andy Garland8th – £2,700 – John Eames9th – £2,300 – Mo Qureshi10th – £1,900 – Ian Bradley The GUKPT heads to Cardiff in July.
