In a very evenly stacked final table, Michelle Minshull led the field on 154,000 chips. Damon Delaney held the short stack with just 29,000 in chips. After a couple of hours play we were down to our final two players in a shootout for VEGAS100 qualification. Chris Langford matched up against Denis Ware with £200 going to the runner-up. The tournament came to an end in Chris’s favour as his A-6 proved too strong for Denis’s J-8 on a 10-A-J-7-Q board. Congratulations Chris and good luck in Vegas.
