Michael Richardson Wins the Nottingham Genting Poker Series
Jan 20, 2014
Michael Richardson was the winner of the Nottingham Genting Poker Series, but Simon Deadman achieved the biggest score and got the largest money prize.
38 entrants reached the final all-day-long game organized by the online casino operator, focusing on the potential first prize of GBP 80,000, when everyone had already secured at least GBP 1,800.
By the early evening the final table of nine was formed with Simon Deadman as a lead. JP Kelly was the first one to exit, followed by Chris Vernon.
The night got extremely hot towards the end of the game
The final three left to practice poker strategies on each other, Michael Richardson, Simon Deadman and Tim Slater agreed on a deal which provided for Deadman to take the highest amount of GBP 70,000. Tim Slater was left with GBP 42,500 and the winner Michael Richardson took GBP 38,000.
With a two-to-one chip deficit to overturn, Richardson did not look like the winner but he managed to turn the game by most notably hitting a 5 holding A5 against Deadman’s A10. Around 4.00 am Richardson, finally claimed the win, when his pocket 10s held to beat Deadman’s A8.
