Steve Holden Wins British Masters Poker Tour Liverpool
You would be forgiven for thinking poker had stopped completely outside of the capital this month, but the folks at the Gala in Liverpool would beg to differ. The 5th leg of the British Masters Poker Tour. Just 73 runners in this event, although you can probably forgive them being as over 600 players were playing event one of the WSOPE last weekend, though it did create a £12,000 first prize for the eventual winner.
Who was none other than prolific Gala tour champion Steve Holden of Birmingham. Steve made a big name for himself in 2007 when he won both the main event and a side event of the Great British Poker Tour in Nottingham. With this win now he becomes the first player to win multiple Gala Tour main events. The tour now heads to Bristol for its grand final starting on October 23rd.
