UKCOAP – Rich Baker takes biggest portion of the dough
- UKCOAP FINAL DAY
A £50k Guaranteed Main Event, a Bounty Hunter and a NLHE Deep & Steep crowned off 5 days of action at the UK Championship of Amateur Poker at DTD.
In the £50k GTD Main Event, following an Online Day 1 and 4 live Day 1’s in DTD, 72 qualifiers progressed into Day 2 on Sunday with a min cash of £200 locked up – and first to pick up that min cash was Anthony Harrison as he departed during the first level of the day.
Although on a 40 min clock, the field reduced swiftly to 30 at the first break, and 15 by the second break of the day before reaching a Final Table 9.
UKCOAP Main Event Final Table
In the Medals and with an average stack of 32 Big Blinds playing 250k/500k, Richard Baker gets out of the way on the Button, David Collier raises it and Tahir Ahmed calls – Flop comes Qc Jc 8c and David leads out for 1.5m with Tahir then re-shoving All In and David making the call.
David Ah Ac for over pair and nut flush draw
Tahir 9s 10h for the flopped straight
Turn 3h and then a River 6c to give David the nut flush and we have our Bronze Medalist – Tahir Ahmed, also taking home £3,000 cash.
20 minutes of Heads Up action followed between Richard and David, and with David holding a chip advantage we saw a flop of 9d 8d 7s with David betting and Richard calling to see a Ks Turn – Richard takes the pot having bet into David’s Check.
Pre-flop Richard raised to 2.5m and on a flop of 6h Jd 6s David bets 4m and we see a Turn 10c, David is All In after Richard Checks – and Richard makes the call – David shows 10d 7h for 2nd pair against Richard holding Kc 10s for the same, but with his Kc currently playing – River 3d and Richard holds and after a count David ships over xxx to Richard who now has a huge chip lead – David with about 2m of the 47m chips in play.
Next hand, 300k/600k and Richard raises and David makes the move over the line.
Richard Kh Kd
David Kc 8h
Board 6h 3c 7s 4d 9h
And we have a conclusion, with David Collier bagging £4,750 and taking home the Championship Silver Medal.
And we crown Rich Baker as he takes home the biggest portion of the dough.
