The Newton Park had a good final table showing with Darran Drinkeld in 3rd and Jason Donaldson reaching the heads-up encounter with Martin Wilson. The tournament was over when an all-in and call was announced as the unfortunate Jason Dennison was at risk holding J-5 to Martin’s 7-2. The final board ran out 7-10-9-5-4 to crown Martin Wilson the new North East champion.
