UK PokerNews Roundup: Praz Bansi Interview, Chop at DTD Deepstack, and more
Praz Bansi Bracelet Ceremony Interview
Gloria Balding catches up with double bracelet winner Praz Bansi during his bracelet ceremony over the weekend.

4 Way Chop in DTD Deepstack
Despite the action in Vegas the monthly Dusk Till Dawn Deepstack met its £80,000 guarantee with 269 players making the popular £300 event. The event eventually finished in a 4 way chop between Fan Cao, Ray Ryder, Andrew Ferguson and Mark Aldridge, with every player taking somewhere between £11-£15k.
English Poker Open Changes Venue
Despite what can only be considered a big success on its debut at Dusk Till Dawn last year, the $5000 English Poker Open is switching venues to the Palm Beach Casino in Mayfair, London. Once again there is a $1 million guaranteed prize pool and there is a cap of 300 players in this event, scheduled for early September.
