Leon Bui has won the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Grand Final Main Event and £144,905 at London’s Victoria Casino, bringing the 2010 tour to a thrilling finale. He faced tough opposition from a field of 207 who entered the £2,500 buy-in event to compete for the last and largest Main Event title of the year, but Bui was the last man standing after three long days of poker, his huge first prize propelling him to the top of the year’s GUKPT Prize Money Rankings with over £200,000 in winnings. Earlier this year he came 3rd in the other London leg of the tour for £56,000.
The end of the final tournament on the main tour also brings to an end the contest for the Ranking Points Leaderboard, which has been won, with its £20,000 first prize, by GUKPT Blackpool Champ David Johnson – incidentally the bubble in the Grand Final - with Alli Mallu in second place (£10,000) and Neil Channing third (£5,000).
The Champion of Champions Festival, held at G Casino, Coventry, on Saturday 4th December, will be the last series of events held in 2010. This unique festival features an invite-only freeroll that will give everyone who has taken a title on the GUKPT Main Tour, Summer Series, Club Championships, Online 10% Series or National Poker League a shot at a bite of the £150,000 prize pool, with their starting chips allocated according to number and size of events won.
