A 10 player final all had Vegas on their mind as Matyas Horvath started in pole position. Two players would still leave empty handed unfortunately, these were Brian Phillips in 10th place and Darren Young in 9th. With the remaining 8 in the money the tension eased slightly as David Currie hit the rail in 8th place to be followed by Brian Fulton 7th, Matyas Horvath 6th, Fraser Baird 5th, John Thomson 4th and Marie Bain 3rd. Gabor Berecz was left to battle with Craig McLuckie, who probably has one of the best poker surnames! It proved lucky by name, lucky by nature as the final hand saw Craig win a flip as his 3-3 matched up against Gabor’s A-10. The final board ran out 6-8-J-7-K to crown Craig McLuckie the new South Scotland champion! I wonder if Craig will get McLuckie in Vegas!
