Sheffield’s Grosvenor Casino hosted our South Yorkshire regional final which saw nearly 200 players turn up looking for a chance to win the day’s top prize, a seat into VEGAS100. We also awarded £500 and 2 crystal glass trophies to the individual winner and best represented venue.

The Cock Inn claimed the team event trophy with Mark Dickinson the highest finisher in 7th position. Sue Wainwright, Amanda Lant and Len Rhodes also represented the pub.

Audrey Sheardown led the final table on a stack of 200,000, nearly 10 times the stack of Robert Sutton who was on just 24,000. With Audrey exiting in a solid 3rd place we were left with Jack Morton and Adrian Shinn to contest the much sought after VEGAS100 seat. With Adrian having the best of it holding 10-10 pre-flop in the final hand, a double up looked on the cards. However, with Jack holding K-8 the final board came down as 5-4-6-7-9 to propel Jack into the lead and eliminate Adrian in 2nd place. Congratulations Jack.
