The Grosvenor Casino in Liverpool hosted our Merseyside regional final as players from the Wirral, Liverpool, Blackpool and surrounding areas entered the casino, all with the goal of qualifying for our VEGAS100 National Final.

The first award of the day was the team event trophy which went to the day’s best represented venue. On this occasion it was Caskey’s in Rhyl who took this honour. Congratulations to Simon Hiles, Scott Palmer, Tony Jones & Aaron Dodwell.

Our 10 player final was led by Peter Hendrick and Alan Ball on 98,000 and 79,000 respectively. In a final table that went very much to form it was Peter and Alan who contested the day’s top 2 prizes after a spirited run from Alan Sutton end in 4th place and Tony Jones exited in 3rd place. The final hand saw Peter table A-6 to Alan’s J-7 with Alan needing help from the poker gods. The final board ran out Q-10-8-6-3 to improve Peter’s hand further and crown him the new Merseyside regional final champion.
