JJ Hazan wins GUKPT Bounty Event

The Dragons must be seething. It had to happen really, almost as if the BBC might have penned it themselves, but shortly after being rejected on Dragons Den poker player JJ Hazan only went and won a GUKPT event at Luton last weekend.

Ok, it wasn't the main event and it was a far cry from the millions he suggested he could win for the Dragons, but it was still a GUKPT win. JJ took down the £300 bounty event on Sunday for £6060 and now is looking forward to playing in the Champion of Champions event at the end of the year. What a story it would be if he was named the Champion of Champions after being shot down by the Dragons.
