Croupier wins Sky Poker Tour Leg 3
Simon Jack, a casino dealer from Southend, has won the latest leg of the Sky Poker Tour held at the G Casino in Luton over the weekend. He walked away with a first price of £5,000 after 12 hours tournament play.
At the final table he beat Jonathan Titcombe heads-up to the winners prize, after starting the final table third in the chip count. Titcombe, from Swindon and has the alias 5toneface, was the chip leader at the start of the final table but was eventually overhauled. The final hand saw Jack holding King – Ten against Titcombe’s pocket eights, a ten came on the flop giving Jack top pair, the turn and the river were no good to either player and victory was Jack’s. Titcombe collected £3,460 for his second place and third place went to Ellis Croome who pocketed £2,190. Ashley Taylor who started the final table just behind the chip leader Titcombe only finished fourth but still collected £1,330 for his troubles.
As always in a Sky Poker event there was a good atmosphere, with a field of over 170 players taking part. There were two notable players in the field in Julian Thew, who is a EPT Champion, and professional Ian Frazer, neither of whom made the final table.
Many of the field had booked their seat via satellites on Sky Poker, with
buy-ins from as little as £2.40. The next leg of the tour is being held at the Grosvenor Casino in Leeds on Saturday 7th May. You could follow in Simon’s footsteps at the next event and walk away with a tidy sum, with qualifiers about to start get yourself an account with Sky and it could be you collecting the next winners cheque.
