Chung Is a GUKPT Champion Again; Wins Luton High Roller

Timothy Chung

Timothy Chung's impressive form continued with the grinder taking down the £2,200 High Roller event at the 2022 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) Luton festival. Chung overcame a star-studded field of 59 players and helped himself to $34,350 of the £106,200 prize pool.

The first few months of 2022 have been excellent for Chung. He won the £1,250 GUKPT London Main Event for a career-best £185,860 as February began. A third-place finish in the £330 Win The Button tournament at UKIPT London added £1,089 to his bankroll. Chung then won the £200 Pot-Limit Omaha event at the 888 LIVE London High Roller Festival, and followed that up with a runner-up finish in the £400 buy-in London G400 for £27,000. He now has the GUKPT Luton High Roller title and its £34,350 top prize on his poker CV.

Sebastien Jung was the unfortunate soul who burst the money bubble when he busted in ninth place. Terry Jordon was one of the biggest stacks going into the final table but he was still the first player to crash out in the money place, such is Jordon's style of play.He collcted £3,850 for his eighth place finish.

Ryan Mandara, the 2018 Irish Open champion, fell in seventh for £4,700 before Tom Hall, who was denied an 888poker XL Spring Series title this week, was eliminated in sixth place for £5,800.

Matthew Davenport extended his lead in the National Poker League with a fifth-place finish in this event, which came with £7,500, the last four-figure score of the evening. "A.S." joined the list of busted players, doing so with £10,400 reasons to be happy with his performance.

Yorkshireman Jacob Mulhearn bowed out in third, which came with a £15,100 payday. This is Mulhearn's second-largest live score, although the £650,000 he received after finishing second to Maria Lampropulos at the 2018 MILLONS UK Main Event blows it out of the water.

Heads-up pitted Chung against James Rann, another player in hot form; Rann won the UKIPT London Main Event for 86,569. Chung held a massive lead going into heads-up, which put Rann on the backfoot. Chung used his big stack to his advantage and sent Rann to the showers via the cashier's desk to collect £22,350. Chung emerged victoriously and added £34,350 to his lifetime winnings.
