Betfair Poker Live London has new Valentine
Finnish based player Artuu Pitkakangas took home over £7,000 plus a package to the next event after winning the Betfair Poker Live London tournament. Valentine’s Day did not affect Artuu when dispatching of his opponent Hugo Cruz. He did it clinically with an Ace on the flop and without love on the turn or river for Hugo.
The newly opened Fox Poker Club was the venue for the event, and it was attended by players all across Europe. The club is situated happily in London’s theatre district and the £250 main event attracted 171 entrants.
A £33 bounty side event was won by Lex Lettl from Germany, as he beat a field of 67 (apparently hungover) opponents for the £640 top prize and another £1000 Live! Package. Big Carlos also made an appearance on the final table, infamous for his Betfair twitter postings.
The next Betfair Poker Live! Event takes place in Tallin on 15th-17th of April and more details can be found on Betfair Poker.
