The Grosvenor Casino in Bristol was the venue for our West Country regional final as players from Bristol and surrounding areas fought for another seat into our VEGAS100 National Final next year.

The team event was won by the Old Inn in Weston-super-Mare who had 2 finalists in Robert Bennett and Paresh Aggarwal. Ray Holder and Lynne Simpson also represented the venue on the day.

The final table chip leader was Teresa Beard on 139,000 and Teresa made good use of that stack finishing in 3rd place for £100 and a UK National Final seat. Teresa’s exit was part of a 3-way all-in between her, Paresh and Sam which brought the tournament to an abrupt end. Teresa tabled Q-2, Paresh 3-3 and Sam 10-10 and with a board of J-6-4-5-K and with Sam Pearson being the big stack he eliminated Teresa and Paresh to become the new West Country champion.
