Sy Zulhayir Wins June's Fox Poker Club Main Event

Sayil Zulhayir

Sy “SykoSy” Zulhayir took down the Fox Poker Club Main Event over the weekend, bagging himself a cool £11,750 in the process.

The monthly tournament carries a £25,000 guaranteed prize pool but that was never in danger as 147 was the number of entrants by the time registration close and that meant the prize pool had swelled to an impressive £44,100. The prize pool was shared out amongst the top 16 finishers, a min-cash being worth £400 whilst the eventual winner's prize was altered slightly after Zulhayir and Daniel Burrow decided to even up the final two payouts when they were heads-up.

Zulhayir became the champion when his {A-Clubs}{J-Clubs} turned a flush on a {k-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Spades}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} board to crush the {a-}{9-} of Burrows. Shortly after winning all of the chips in play the London-based professional poker player said he was honoured to add the FPC Main Event to his list of poker accomplishments and that the £11,750 would come in handy if he decides to jet off to Las Vegas for some World Series of Poker action.
