16th November
Played the Sunday Millions on Stars last night getting off to a flying start, finding myself in the top 20 out of the 18,283 runners after the first 3 hours of the game, although 3 major outdraws for my tournament of AA into the inferior AQ --- QQ into 77, with my exit hand being QQ into JJ and AK with the AK hitting a set on the flop and scooping the 650k pot with the ave at 125k meant the difference of a top ten finish as opposed to cashing for $550 for 1501st place

Priyan Wins GUKPT Blackpool 2009
Priyan de Mel has taken down the 9th leg of the gukpt at the G casino in Blackpool.
36-year Priyan de Mel has taken down the 9th leg of the 2009 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour at the G casino in Blackpool. De Mel, a property developer from London defeated a field of 287 players to scoop the £84,900 first prize and a seat in the £100,000 Champion of Champions tournament. His heads up opponent was 23-year old online pro James Williams from Swindon. After eliminating Ben Vinson in third place, de Mel went into the heads up stage of the tournament with a 2-1 chip lead. The tête-à-tête stage of the tournament did not last long before de Mel emerged victorious holding J-8 on a J-J-7-5 board. Williams bluffed on the turn holding 3-6 and needed a 4 to win the pot, but a queen on the river shipped the final pot to de Mel and earned him the title of GUKPT Blackpool champion.

De Mel just missed out on a GUKPT final table two years ago, when he finished in 10th place at the London leg of the tour. He was delighted to have put that disappointment behind him by securing this win, but also commented on a hand that took place on the first day of the tournament, when he was all-in and behind holding 5-2 on an A-4-x board. His friend Andrew Seden held pocket fours, but a 3 on the turn kept him in the tournament.

“I am delighted to have won this title, but I could easily have been out on day one if I had not hit my gutshot against Andy”

The 8 handed Play-Off STT will be held at AWOP HQ after the GUKPT in Blackpool, this will be shown live on “The Nutz TV” on Thursday 19th at 5pm, I’ll be putting reminders on here so please get signed up/registered (It’s free) and come and rail me on the live chat box, Thanks
