Mark Trett wins British Masters Poker Tour Teeside

108 players descended on the Gala Casino in Stockton-On-Tees over the weekend for the latest leg of the British Poker Masters Tour. The tour is yet to sell out but is getting closer and closer to doing so (And probably will in the next stop in Nottingham, which is a real hub of UK poker) and included a field that saw former European player of the year Ash Hussein at the final table. In the end it was Newcastle regular Mark 'the threat' Trett who took the trophy and the £12,650 first prize.

The next stop of the tour is in Nottingham at the Gala Casino, beginning on the 14th of August

1st Mark Trett £12,650
2nd Dom Mahoney £10,000

Nick Jenkins wins London Poker Circuit Super Stack Series

Over on the other side of the country, the London Poker Circuit relaunched their tour with a £750, 20,000 starting stack main event over the weekend. James Akenhead was in attendance, as were the Boatman brothers, but the field was still relatively small at 31 players. Only one online satellite entry was in the field, which may be the key to the small field, but once again all in attendance enjoyed a very well organised and good natured event.

The winner was former APAT champion Nick Jenkins (Pictured here with his APAT trophy courtesy of APAT) who pocketed £10,000. This was a well deserved win, as Nick has been very vocal on the poker forums singing the praises of this event prior to playing in it, it is perhaps only right he won it:

1st Nick Jenkins £10,000
2nd James Mitchell £5750
3rd Ross Boatman £3500
4th Nicos Loannou £2500
5th Paul Murrell £1500
