This week Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham is hosting fantastic poker tournaments as a part of the partypoker Live UK Poker Championships event. While the £1,000,000 GTD Main Event will conclude over the weekend, on Tuesday, we watched exciting Super High Roller finals.
The tournament had a £5,300 buy-in, and 40 incredibly talented poker players from all over Europe came to compete. After two days of high-quality poker plays, a British chap called Steven Morris took the title and the £70,000 purse. This was the biggest tournament of this type for the UK Poker Championships. So, it seems that partnering up with one of the most prominent UK poker sites, partypoker, paid off.
Naturally, Morris was super-stoked about the win. He said, “I’ve been close a few times. I feel ecstatic to be fair. Honestly. I played it last minute and the first day went pretty well coming back as chip leader. Today we just ran up a stack!”
This is Steven’s most significant live tournament win during his professional poker career. However, this is not the last that we will be seeing of him. Morris will try to win himself the Main Event title, which has a £1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool.
The UK Poker Championships Main Event Final Day will take place on Sunday, February 25th around 12:00 GMT.
