World Snooker Championships Poker Tournament Videos

Goodbye From Sheffield – 05/05/2013 – 21:50

Well this tournament was put together by Barry Hearne in association with G Casino Sheffield. It’s aim was to raise money for charity, to be a fun event and that’s exactly what it has achieved. The game was played in great spirits by the 14 players who entered, plus the one player who re entered. I would of liked to see it few more runners, but I am sure it will next year if it is run again. We had a few GukPT regulars in Skullman, Martyn Frey & Albert Sapiano. We then had the ‘celebrities’ in Barry Hearne & Willie Thorne. The rest of the field were relatively unknown to me, but I know third place finisher Paul Grice qualified online for just £4.20 and has walked away with £1,350 a fantastic return. The event raised £1125 for the Bluebell Wood Childrens Hospice, which I am sure they will greatly appreciate.

Eventualy winner after 9 hours of play was Tom Hall who was coming off the back of a final table finish in Didsbury. He takes home the £3,300 first place prize. Rob Cook finishing in second place for £2,020 after grinding for most of the day.

From everyone here at the GukPT we will be back on Thursday for more videos and updates from Stockton. Until then be lucky!!
