While most of the poker world focused on WSOP Europe and PokerStars' WCOOP last week, a £100,000 buy-in tournament took place at Aspinalls, a private gaming club in London, England. Among the 21-players to show up for the expensive tournament were Phil Ivey, Sam Trickett, JC tran, Erik Seidel, Tobias Reinkeier etc.
Of course, many expected one of the well-known poker pros to take home the tournament, but instead it ended up being a 48-year-old man known as the "Macau Businessman" who came out on top. After all top pros had hit the rail, Big One For One Drop participants Richard Young and Paul Phua were playing heads-up. After some time of battle, Paul Phua had all the chips and received the £1,000,000 first place prize. This was Phua's first major tournament win/cash!

3.Winfred Yu £300,000
