Paul Pitchford, who plays Redtooth Poker at the Talbot in Mansfield had a weekend to remember in London. Paul won a seat for Event #3 of this years WSOPE via his ‘Player Of The Series’ achievement in the recent APAT World Amateur Championships, the second successive year that Paul has claimed this title.

Paul ended his long run in the £1,075 buy-in event in 4th place winning a handsome £40,862 while rubbing shoulders on the final table with the likes of JP Kelly, one of the UK’s finest. It was indeed Kelly who eliminated Paul as Paul’s 95 was in bad shape against JP’s A5 pre-flop and with a board of 833 T 5 Paul would just miss out on the £133,857 1st prize and of course a WSOP bracelet. But still, a £40k win is not bad when you are free-rolling.

Congratulations Paul!
