PokerStars Qulifier Wins UKIPT Nottingham (182,000)

Posted on 20 April 2015 by "T".

The last 37 players of 1,026 entrants returned on Sunday to play the final day of the UK and Ireland Poker Tour Nottingham Main Event. Among the 37 players were a former UKIPT winner, a UKIPT leaderboard winner and three players who had previously played a UKIPT final table.

However, at the end of it all it was an unknown 24-year-old from the United Kingdom who stood tall as the winner. It was Sam Mitten-Laurence's second ever live tournament and he qualified through a £160 satellite on PokerStars to win entry to this tournament, which eventually earned him an incredible £182,000! A pretty good return on a small investment!

"I've really enjoyed the whole week, especially since it's been so long since my last live tournament," he told PokerStars Blog. "It's been a great experience. I definitely plan on playing more UKIPT events, and I'll probably travel for some EPTs too. Other than that, I'll probably take a nice holiday with my girlfriend and put some towards a house."

Many many congratulations to Sam Mitten-Laurence on winning this event and the first prize of £182,000. Great to see that he qualified on a satellite and it gives hope to all players who play these things.

Nice result, i'm always happy to see a satellite winner take the main prize. Although that satellite entry was more than i'd pay for a direct entry.

A great win for a satellite qualifier and from looking at the hendon database this appears to be the only cash he has ever had in a live tournament so a good way to make his debut. $266,000 should ensure a pretty decent holiday for him and his girlfriend.

Dunno what a 'PokerStars Qulifier' means but sure as hell I want be one when I'll grow up. Of course what would be a UK based tourey final table without a guy from Poland to represent all the ex-pats currently waiting for David Cameron to send them home for good.
