Nik Persaud Wins World Heads Up Poker Championships

Nik Persaud

Taking place alongside the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Grand final this week was the World Heads Up Poker Championships, an event that always brings out the big guns. 28 players in total bought into the £2,000 event which was a healthy mix of live veterans and up and coming online stars.

For the second year in a row it would be a hometown hero that would take top honours, as BlackBelt Pokers own Nik Persaud defeated runner up Leon Lewis in the final. Also making the money and semi finals were former champion Jeff Kimber and form man EPT champion Toby Lewis.

No doubt it will feel like a long time coming for Persaud, who has many major near misses in his live career including making three GUKPT main event final tables. He bagged £30,000 and the trophy for his efforts and no doubt will be sticking around for the main event.

"I'm really pleased to have won a title," added Nik. "There were some great players in there, so it feels good to have won, especially in a format which I've been playing a lot of. It's also great for Black Belt Poker, and hopefully shows what a great team spirit we have. It spurs you on when you see everyone else doing so well."

1st Nik Persaud - £30,000
2nd Leon Louis - £15,000
3rd Toby Lewis - £5,500
3rd Jeff Kimber - £5,500

Time is running out for our exclusive UK only $1,000 freeroll on WSOP.com – only 10 points to qualify and we are expecting less than 20 players so it should be easy pickings.
