Over the weekend the Dusk Till Dawn poker club in Nottingham hosted a number of superb live poker tournaments, the highlight being the £150 DTD Deepstack that guaranteed a prize pool of £50,000. The man who walked away with the lion's share of this huge prize was Timothy Chung who picked up £15,372.50 for his efforts.
This is bar far Chung's largest live cash to date, in fact this score is almost four-times the size of his previous three cashes combined! Prior to this result, Chung's last cash – which was also his largest – came at the £1,000,000 guaranteed UKIPT Nottingham held at Dusk Till Dawn. On that occasion Chung picked up £3,400 for his 33rd place finish but that has now been dwarfed by this win.
There were 235 entries into this event and that meant the tournament featured an overlay of almost £15,000 making it even better value for the players; if not for the DTD management team. The £50,000 prize pool was shared out among the top 27 finishers, a min-cash being worth £300 and a final table appearance locking up at least £946.
The unfortunate bubble boy was Ian Edwards whilst Matt Russell was the unfortunate soul to narrowly miss out on a final table, busting in 10th place.
At the final table it was Duncan Taylor who was the first player to be eliminated, followed by Colin Marks, Zaheer Ahmed, Jeremy Cook, Harish Sahnan, Gerald Mcinally and Ian Roberts. Their demises left Robin Watkins and Chung to battle it out heads-up for the title, a fight that was eventually won be Chung.
This coming weekend the Dusk Till Dawn club plays host to the APAT European Championship of Amateur Poker and we will be bringing you reports on that once the results have been announced.
