Last year's UK Student Poker Championship Main Event attracted a record field of 357 students at the Broadway Casio, Birmingham and the organisers are hoping for an even bigger turn out this time around. The eventual winner was Gareth Jones of Aberstywth who walked away with more than £1,000 in prize money and a seat to the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event!
