Adam Maxwell comes into play a little short-stacked, but he's loved the "friendly atmosphere" of Dusk Till Dawn all week and he's an absolute hero to his mates in the casino this evening, well supported as he shoots for glory.
Maxwell has previously won £25,000 in the Dusk Till Dawn Deepstack tournament, so any finish above 6th Place will represent his best-ever tournament result. His poker hero was the late Chinese Frankie, who played here at Dusk Till Dawn and was loved by all until his sad passing almost exactly a year ago.
Maxwell would love to play in more shot clock tournaments and loves an alternative poker format for side events, with mixed games just the springboard for his passion. He bought in for £220 on a Day 1 and one day hopes to take on Tom Dwan in the Bahamas. Maybe he can get a roll big enough to take him on in the nosebleed stakes and challenge him to fly there!
