Brett Angell as winner, the 2nd place for Fabrizio Fuchs - UKIPT London 2014
The Grand Final of the United Kingdom and Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) concluded with Brett Angell claiming the top prize. He entered the final table as chipleader, and eventually dominated the battle to the entire disappointment of Nickolas Davies, Rasmus Agerskov, Sandro Mescola, Vladimir Troyanovskiy, Fabrizio Fuchs, Caicai Huang and Mark James. 1,089 players took part in the race, but only 8 participants remained in contention for the UKIPT 2014 Main Event title. After a failed UKIPT Nottingham final table last year, Brett Angell made it big by winning the UKIPT 2014 Main Event, an enticing tournament held in the poker room of the Grand Connaught Rooms (London). Brett found himself facing Switzerlands Fabrizio Fuchs in the heads-up; the clash lasted about 1 hour and 45 minutes, at the end of which Britains Brett emerged victorious. For his first-place finish, Brett Angell cashed £ 115,083 while Fabrizio Fuchs collected £ 98,717 of consolation prize.
Denmarks Rasmus Agerskov was the first to leave the final table for £ 12,800 payout. Londons Caicai Huang (7, £ 17,800), Russias Vladimir Troyanovskiy (6th, £ 23,800), USAs Nickolas Davies (5th, £ 32,500) and the other British Mark James (4th, £42,500) are the other title contenders who failed to reach the ultimate face-to-face. Italias Sandro Mescola finished third place for £ 56,500, paving the way for Brett Angell and Fabrizio Fuchs to battle the heads-up. Though he fell to second place, Fuchs has made a great feat in this poker tournament. As a reminder, Fuchs was the short stack of the final table; he only had 1,240,000 chips while Brett Angell bagged 5.19 million chips in hands.
