Short stack Ross Evans made a swift exit in 9th place and subsequently bubbled the cash and National Final qualifying positions. John Malpas was then eliminated in 8th place with Kim Bradley 7th, Andy Henderson 6th, Richard Thomas 5th, Gareth Brown 4th and David Rowberry 3rd. Ashley Robins started the heads-up match with Mooster with a huge chip lead, a chip lead he didn’t relinquish as Ashley’s 6-6 held against Mooster’s A-7 on a 5-2-9-5-9 board. Well done Ashley.
