Alan Mansbridge Wins GUKPT Walsall

Alan Mansbridge

London cabbie Andy Mansbridge has beaten a field of 172 players to take the title at GUKPT Walsall, along with top prize of £50,000. Having been the lowest stack in the tournament the night before, he staged the most dramatic comeback ever seen on the tour to climb from the very bottom of the chip counts to end up as the last man standing.

“I hadn’t booked a hotel – I wasn’t expecting to make it,” admitted the soft-spoken poker enthusiast, as he was waiting to collect his winnings. Happy to be improving and taking on the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour in the future, he posed for photos in his cab before driving it back to London where he plans to play the very next day. He beat Martin Holmes heads up after nearly six hours on the final table, which also featured Nick Hicks, Simon Deadman and Ryan Spittles.
