Rupinder Bedi Wins DTD Deepstack
Fears of an overlay were soon scuppered by a big turnout once again at the Dusk Till Dawn Monthly £80,000 Guaranteed Deepstack Event. 327 players made it for the 2 day £300 monthly festival creating a £98,100 prize pool. The event was won by good friend of UK Pokernews Rupinder ‘George’ Bedi, who held onto a big chip lead after day one to snatch the prestigious monthly event. Bedi first came to our attention in 2008 when he won the 2008 GCBPT Nottingham Main Event and now just two years on and as many miles down the road, he has took down this coveted title. He was also joined by Champion of Champions Winner Haitao Wu and in form Nottingham regular James Moult at the final table.
1 Rupinder Bedi £28,811
2 Haitao Wu £16,844
3 Tim Blake £10,106
4 Oluwashola Akindele £7,092
5 Barrington Nicholas £5,319
6 John Connolly £3,989
7 Paul Lammas £3,103
8 James Moult £2,216
9 David Cooke £1,773
BlondePoker Partner With Dusk Till Dawn
The Blondpoker forum in the UK is second to none and widely regarded as the biggest and best poker community in Britain, however their online card room had been experiencing a lot of problems of late. Always candid and honest with their community, Tony Kendall and the gang made everyone aware a while ago that they would be closing their card room skin this month and looking to continue their forum in some other capacity with a new partner.
Last week they announced a super-affiliate agreement with Dusk Till Dawn for both the online and live club. The Nottingham Poker Venue will be guaranteeing Blonds operating costs and amongst other things allowing for more of their infamous interactive live updates at DTD and other UK events.
Here at UK Pokernews we congratulate such a fantastic partnership between the strongest live poker venue and the strongest poker community in the UK and wish them every success in the future.
