The third leg of the 2010-11 Sky Poker Tour held at Luton's G Casino was won by Casino dealer Simon Jack from Southend, who defeated Swindon's Jonathan "5toneface" Titcombe Heads-up at the end of twelve hours of tournament play. In a superb atmosphere Sky Poker Players from all over the country descended on the event in Luton, which attracted an eventual field of 172 runners, many of whom had qualified for as little as £2.40 on www.skypoker.com. Amongst the runners were EPT Champion Julian Thew and professional Ian Frazer.
As the final table began Titcombe was the chip leader ahead of Birmingham's Ashley "ChirpyChip" Taylor, who was to finish fourth. Simon Jack was third in chips and overcame his opponents after prolonged short-handed play. In the final hand Jack took King-Ten against Titcombe's Pocket Eights, and hit a ten on the flop to secure his victory and first prize of £5,000
The next leg of the 2010-11 Sky Poker Tour will be held at the Grosvenor Casino, Leeds on Saturday 7th May.
