Sky Poker Tour Blackpool Won By Andrew Garland

Andrew Garland

The penultimate leg of the 2011-12 Sky Poker Tour took place inside the G Casino in the united Kingdom's own version of Las Vegas, Blackpool! At the end of the two-day bounty event it was Andrew Garland who walked away with the top honours, defeating James Colley heads-up for the title.

By the time registration drew to a close the number of entrants in the £220 Main Event stood at an impressive 164, meaning the prize pool was a rather substantial £24,600 plus £8,200 in bounties. These 164 runners were reduced to the nine-handed final table by 18:30 on Sunday afternoon, at which point they sat down as follows:

The first of these players to head to the rail was Tyrone Cato and he was followed to the rail by Adam Bromley who lost out with {k-}{k-} to Rachael Costa's {A-}{Q-Clubs} when the board four-flushed .

One by one the field was slowly but surely being reduced whilst at the same time the prie money becoming more substantial. Christo Katsikas, Paul Barber and the aforementioned Costa were the next players sent for an early bath and when Peter Munro and Chris Cox were sent packing the heads-up section of the tournament was set.

The final hand saw the tournament completed at the hands of a coinflip; just as many tournaments are. The chips went flying into the middle with Garland holding {9-}{9-} to James Colley's {Q-}{J-}. The pocket nines held and with that Garland was announced as champion and awarded over £7,100 for his efforts in this superbly run tournament.
