World Heads-Up Championship Quarter Finals

Friday, 30 October 2009

The world heads-up championships are still trundling on in London, with Dario Minieri still in, as well as one of the rising UK stars of the EPT Richard Gryko.

Gryko has a WSOPE final table behind him, a GUKPT runner-up spot, a GUKPT win and an EPT 8-game final table – all in the last year. He is to square off against Greece’s Bambos Xanthos.

Italian PokerStars pro Dario Minieri is sure to give his opponent a tough match – the superstar online pro built his bankroll playing Heads-Up SnGs. However, don’t write off his opponent James Mitchell – the young UK student has a GUKPT final table behind him as well as the Gutshot Series of Poker title.

The full quarter-final line-up is as follows:

Victor V. Ilyukhin vs. Thor Drexel

Richard Gryko vs. Bambos Xanthos

Laurence Houghton vs. Tony Cascarino

James Mitchell vs. Dario Minieri
