Southampton’s Summer Series Main Event attracted 65 runners and paid most of a final table – the largest prize (£10,390) going to Christopher Webber (pictured) who became the dual final Summer Series Champion along with Sheffield winner Michael Arnot.
Arnot might have taken the £7,820 first prize from the Main Event in Sheffield, but he was only slightly ahead of Garry Hallows for the weekend overall – Hallows cashed no fewer than 3 times – one of the best showings at the 2011 Summer Series. The £100 Bounty Booster finished Sheffield’s festival in style, attracting 109 runners and giving winner John Stokes a top prize of £2,455. Runner up Matthew Christopher had also won the first event (£200 freezeout) for a further £2,920.
