Nine poker players will return to the G Casino Reading on Sunday lunchtime and play until one of them has won all of the chips in play. The man who leads the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) Reading Main Event going into the final table is Timotheos Timotheou and his 731,000 stack.
Like his eight table mates, Timotheou is guaranteed to take home at least £1,650 for his efforts in this tournament. This cash marks his first on the GUKPT, although he has plenty of other results to his name, including a win in the 2010 European Masters of Poker that bagged him an impressive €86,680. While a win in Reading would not yield that sort of money, the eventual champion is going to bank £23,930 and a GUKPT trophy.
Standing between Timotheou and the title are Adam Howlett, Alex Zeligman, Genting Poker Series Newcastle champion and the last woman standing Ellie Biessek, David Lloyd, Grosvenor Poker lead pro Jeff Kimber, Paul Dunne, James Martin and John Burberry.
Play resumes at 14:00 on Sunday and will continue until a champion is crowned. Tune into UK & Ireland PokerNews on Monday to find out which of the aforementioned players scoops the title and the lion’s share of the record-breaking prize pool.
