UKIPT Edinburgh: Victory of the Canadian Nicholas Abou Risk

The tournament United Kingdom & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) held at Edinburgh, at Corn Exchange was attended by 401 players last weekend with poker stars like Neil Channing, Julian Thew and Liv Boeree. It must be said that the poker community does not expect the outcome of the event because the title was won by the young Canadian of 25 years who resides in Dublin, Ireland, Nicholas Abou Risk. Risk began the final day as chip leader and has maintained his lead despite repeated attacks during the day of big name of poker such as Richard Chadwick who finished in the 5th place and pocketed a gain of £ 10,300 or the reigning of the UKIPT Manchester Joeri Zandvliet ranked fourth with a gain of £ 13,100 at the final table. Zandvliet just missed an opportunity to equalize Marius Liutuvninkas in the ranking of the top leader board.

As for Abu Risk, he maintained his advance and managed to be part of the two competitors head's up final. He played against the Lithuanian Mantas Puidokas after the elimination of Luke Marsh at he third place. The duel lasted only 20 minutes. Puidokas briefly dominated the game but Risk regained control of the game and ejected from the final table the Lithuanian who then went back home with the second prize of $ 27,700. Still under the influence of emotion after the unprecedented success he recorded, the young Canadian player, said he will enjoy the reward of $ 63,000 and will go on a holiday with his wife. Marius Liutuvninkas still occupies the head of the top leader board with two titles in his possession but Joeri Zandvliet, Mike Hill and Owen Robinson will still have a chance to catch him at the upcoming events of the UKIPT. The next round will take place from September 9th to 12th in Dublin.
