Genting Poker Series: Iwan Jones wins the GPS Stoke Main Event

Iwan Jones was the lucky winner of the Genting Poker Series Stoke 2014 Main Event which took place in the poker room of the prestigious Genting Club Stoke, UK. 360 poker players participated in the Main Event, including 108 inscriptions on Day 1B and 198 on Day 1C. The first day of the poker tournament was played online via Genting Poker and Dusk Till Dawn. And after four days of competition, only 18 players secured their places on the table. However, numerous were the notable players who prematurely eliminated in this poker event: ranging from Gerald " Skullman " David to Leon Campbell, Wayne Rogers, Andy Wright , Willie Tann , Aziz Miah , Guy Taylor, Fareed Hussain and Graham Carter as well. The nine remaining places for the final table were occupied by Chen Tam, Alex Spencer, Dominic Kay, Iwan Jones, Andreas Olympius, Jack Allen, Matthew Simpson, Richard Horton and Will Kassouf.

Chen Tam was the first finalist to head for the door for £ 2,880 after having been ousted by Matthew Simpson. Andreas Olympios was eliminated in the 8th position and got £ 4,175. And it took two hours of play to get the next player, Dominic Kay, eliminated from the competition. As for Will Kassouf, he finished 6th with £ 6,880. He is followed by the former winner of the Sky Poker UK Championships Main Event, Alex Spencer (5th, £ 8,715) and Matthew Simpson (4th, £ 12,020). After the elimination of Jack Allen (3th, £ 18,435) by Richard Horton, the latter found himself facing Iwan Jones in Heads-up with an important advantage of 7.5 million chips against 1.5 million for Iwan. But Iwan managed to gradually catch his opponent and eventually took ahead of him. As the 2014 Genting Poker Series Stoke Main Event’s title winner, Iwan Jones got home with £ 32,030 for this stunning victory while Richard Horton consoled himself with £ 25,200 prize.
