Tags: ept london, pokerstars, Segio Aido, uk and ireland poker tour, UKIPT London.
Posted on 11 March 2013 by "T".

On Sunday, the final table of PokerStars UK and Ireland Poker Tour concluded. After several hours of play, Sergio Aido, who started the final table sixth in chips, had all the chips and was crowned the UKIPT London champion. Aido, from Spain, overcame a field of 1,099 players entereing the tournament for £700 each (prize pool £746,221).

It was the largest number of players ever for a poker event in London. Now you might think that weren't any big names taking part in the tournament, but the truth is that many of the world's best were competing together with the "poker amateurs": David Vamplew, Michael Tureniec, Liv Boeree, Jake Cody, Zimnan Ziyard, Ludovic Lacay, Mickey Petersen, Martin Finger, Roberto Romanello, Kent Lundmark, Toby Lewis, Kevin MacPhee, Anton Wigg (just to mention a few).

Many of the pros mentioned above are/were in town for European Poker Tour London. The Main Event of EPT London kicked off yesterday and the second starting day is being played at the moment. Check back tomorrow for a Day 1A and Day 1B recap.

1st. Sergio Aido, Spain, £144,555*
2nd. Thomas Ward, United Kingdom, PokerStars Qualifier, £116,845*
3rd. Patrick Simcoe, United Kingdom, PokerStars Qualifier, £63,560

Congratulations to the winner, that is a pretty sweet prize if you ask me Big Smile

Also it's nice to see spanish players that took big prizes, they were really few lately.

Spanish,......Irish,......all the same folks I understand,.....considering Spain once ruled Ireland and gave them their most famous icon,,,.....

The POTATO....... lol....

Come to think of it,.....many raven haired Irish beauties sort of look a little Spanish..... You know,....the black hair with blue eyes thing....

...and yes,.....not a bad win.... That's $200K Canadian,...... it would buy a nice little cottage at the beach...

Sergio Aido, lucky man now.
Such a nice sum to win. Some people work all their life to built up that amount of money.
That's why poker is so successful the last couple of years with a steep rising of the total players in the world.
Poker lets amateurs believe they can conquer the world and win every tournament, a splendid cash prize.
The truth is most of the players are losing money.
It's only the players who have a slight control on the game and some patience that can get victorious from time to time.

I wish I could once, win such a tournament. I'd feel like I'm in the sky.
Most of the money I would keep safe. Smile
But I'll buy myself some reward too.

He wasn't even among favourites when the final table startted but he managed to turn everything on his side, what a great game he must have played. Now he has a lot of time to decide on what to do with the prize.
