The bigger and better Fox Poker Club Main Event took place over the weekend and what a tournament it was. For the first time since its creation, the monthly Main Event featured an increased buy-in of £435 and a guaranteed prize pool of £25,000. Any fears of the club having to face an overlay were soon dismissed as 139 players descended on the club, creating a prize pool of £55,600.
Of the 139 entries on Day 1, a total of 39 made it through to Day 2 and of those just 15 left the London club with cash to show for their efforts. At the end of an intense day of poker it was Bertie Keegan who walked away victorious, defeating Victor Ilyukhin heads-up to claim the title and the £17,235 first place prize.

This weekend is the £270 Super Saturday tournament, another new addition to the Fox Poker Club's already impressive schedule. For the £270 buy-in players receive a generous stack of 20,000 chips, play to a 30-minute clock and will share a prize pool of at least £10,000.
In previous weeks the Super Saturday has drawn bumper crowds and has seen its guaranteed prize pool completely smashed.A couple of weeks ago James Akenhead bested a 111-strong field to win the £7,500 champion's prize, not a bad haul for a couple of day's work.
