GUKPT Blackpool Main Event Concluded: Andrew Peters the Champion

The Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Blackpool main event saw a total of 262 players participate. Right at the very end however, it was Andrew Peters who took the crown of victory and was rewarded the £72,020 first prize. Oddly enough, Andrew Peters did not seem sit on the spotlight during the rest of the event as the spectators were focusing more on Benjamin Jackson.

Father and Son

There were a number of prominent poker players who participated during the event, including Matt Perrins, Jake Cody and Julian Thew. Of course, the people were a bit more focused on Ben Jackson than anyone else. Benjamin Jackson, son of Paul Jackson, was already crowned the £500 no limit hold’em event champion right after he beat the field of 142 players that participated in it. At the main event, Ben Jackson together with his father, Paul dominated the leader board at one point. It was back in day 1B of the main event and Ben sat on the first spot in chip count and Paul sits on second. However, things did not end too well for Paul as he was later eliminated during day 2 of the main event. Ben however, pushed through up until he was up against Andrew Peters in the heads up play.

The Heads Up Play

The heads up play between Ben Jackson and Andrew Peters lasted for quite a bit. Peters initially had the chip lead, but things were happening so fast that the chip lead was being passed back and forth the two players. Of course, the lead was later on passed on to Peters and that was when he made his move. Andrew peters already had a couple of J’s with him, and Ben Jackson went on with the challenge with his couple of 3’s. Unfortunately for Jackson however, there were no improvements given to him as the cards on the board were revealed. Ben Jackson had to settle in for the second spot for now with £47,820.

The Top Five Players

Andrew Peters sits on the top spot at the end of the main event with the nice £72,020 for his efforts. Benjamin Jackson is on the runner up spot with a nice £47,820 to take home. Right on third is Mark Physick with £31,440 as Rupiner Bedi and Daniel Corbett sits on the fourth and fifth place with £19,000 and £14,150 respectively.
