Our 10 player final saw Arron Davies lead the pack on 152,000 in chips so was a favourite to make the heads-up shootout for the day’s top prize, which he duly did. Charlie’s elimination in 3rd place left Arron to battle with Mark Higgins who was looking for a double trophy haul. Then final hand was a ‘cooler’ for Arron as his 7-7 faced Mark’s J-J with Arron at risk. The final board ran off 8-5-2-10-8 to crown Mark Higgins the new Wirral regional final champion.
