Fraser Bellamy wins DTD Monthly Deepstack
Despite the small matter of the World Series of Poker Main Event about to commence, Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham was heaving as usual for the £300 monthly deepstack main event. 243 runners in total creating a £72,900 prize pool. The eventual winner was Fraser Bellamy, who won this event last August. Following a five way chop the remaining players took between £9,000 and £13,000 and overall leader Bellamy claimed the first place position.
