There have been some excellent real money poker events on the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour. That excellent action continued this week, as the Leeds Mini Main Event took place at the Westgate Casino.
There was a big winner in the event, as Jamie Nixon continued his excellent year at the table with a huge win. Nixon will be no stranger to poker fans around the world, as he has been a popular streamer for Grosvenor over the past couple of years. However, this was his biggest win to date.
Nixon Reigns Supreme
Nixon was in excellent form in the Mini Main Event this week, as he picked up the highest return of his career so far. It was a staggering event until the closing stages, with a number of players still in contention for the top prize. However, Nixon’s victory saw him walk away from the event with prize money of £27,840, making it a career-leading return for the British star. Daniel Stancer was the runner-up in the event, but he would have still likely been appeased with returns of £18,980. A total of 489 players were involved in the Mini Main Event in Leeds this week, but the final table only consisted of nine players.
Chun Hao Man was back in third, as he collected a prize of £11,280. Maz Bako and Andrzej Sidorski were the next two players in the rankings, finishing fourth and fifth. Bako walked away from the Mini Main Event with £6,960. Mohammed Suhail was back in sixth, and won £3,270. Daniel Hodson was among the first players to exit the competition at the final table stage, as he finished seventh. Meanwhile, Hamidreza Egazi and Howard Wilson also departed early on, as they finished in eighth and ninth. Wilson was the first player eliminated at the final table, and claimed winnings of £1,590.
Lestingi & Sewing Claims Wins In The US
Dan Sewing was one of the bigger winners in the United States this week, as he came out on top in the 37th event of the NJCOOP event. There was a field of 95 players involved in the action, but nobody could get close to Sewing, who claimed a quickfire second victory, having previously won the fourth event of the series just a couple of weeks ago. The victory that he achieved saw him walk away from the event with returns of $6,212.01, and he may yet be eyeing up another winner over the coming weeks.
Vincent Lestingi was also among the winners in the United States, as he picked up victory in the 42nd event of the PACOOP. Three tournaments took place on Monday, with Lestingi being the biggest winner on the day. He walked away from the event with returns of $5,631.80, which capped a fascinating day of action. Other winners from the competition on Monday, including Tlamb43 and 1Wolf8, who won the 43rd and 44th events that were competed, respectively.
