The Loose Cannon Club in London was to host our second London final of the fortnight, on this occasion it was the turn of West London to play for six National Final places and a share of £1000.

The story of the weekend was right here in London as Richard Dean from the Farriers Arms in Reading was to hit the monster that is a Royal Flush! Unfortunately for Richard, he was unable to make the final table but he did receive a free drink for his nice stroke of luck.

As the final table began, Charlie Hillman from the Bar Malden in New Malden would lead the way with 145,000 in chips, closely followed by Max Brown from the Butchers Arms in Sonning Common with 130,000. Charlie had a final table to forget as his whole pile of chips gradually deserted him and he was to be the first elimination, coming home in 9th place. It would be Max Brown and Glen Phillips from the Stoke in Guildford who would go heads-up for the West London Regional Final title. A brief heads-up battle saw Max Brown come out on top when his T8 suited overcame Glens AQ to take the title, £500 and a Redtooth crystal glass trophy.
