It's a 'Daveyzz' Double at the SPT Glasgow!
David "daveyzz" Marley defeated 149 opponents to win SPT Glasgow at the Alea Casino at the weekend and record a remarkable second SPT victory in the current season following his win at Newcastle in January. In a battle of Sky Poker big-hitters Davey defeated Sky Poker Total Player winner and Vegas bound Dan "dantb10" Brown heads-up to secure the £4,000 first prize.
In the final hand Daveyzz, who had begun the heads-up play with a commanding chip lead, took Ace-Six against Dantb10's pair of Two's. A 3-3-Q flop was innocuous for Dan but a Queen on the turn counterfeited his pair and gave Daveyzz the victory, achieved after twelve hours total play.
The full final table result, with four of the players Glaswegians, was as follows:
5 Win Big Moe
10 Boba Fett
Boba Fett had reached the final table a big chip leader but ran Ace-Queen into Pocket Kings twice early in the final against Dantb10 and Daveyzz, those chips eventually setting up the top two finish.
Amongst the other runners Sky Presenters Richard Orford and James Hartigan both had days to forget after exiting early in the Main Event. The duo did manage to get some poker under their belts though after enjoying a variety of side games with the Sky Poker community.
The Sky Poker Tour now moves on to the final leg at the Aspers Casino Swansea in July and satellite qualification will begin later this month. Please keep an eye on for www.skypoker.com/tour for further details. Following that the Tour Final at DTD in Nottingham in September promises to be a poker extravaganza as hundreds of Sky Poker players descend on the Midlands in a bid to be crowned the SPT Grand Final Champion.
