Is it very wrong to think of Praz, Karl and Jeff as the revenge of the old guard?

Anyway, good luck to each of them!

In any poker tournament there are key hands. Points where afterwards you can look back and say "that's what mattered"

Late last night, with ten left and on an hour long final table bubble, we may have seen one of those

For these key points to happen three conditions have to be met

a) You have to have a hand

b) Your opponent has to have a hand that he can call you with

c) Your hand needs to hold up


For this man



the perfect storm occurred

David Rudling was one of the chip eladers, and so was Praz. There were two shorter stacks clinging on trying to make the final

Rudling raises to 28,000 at 5,000-10,000 with  from a 540,000 stack

Banzi, in position playing 650,000 3 bet for 43,000 more with 

Rudling called

The flop set up the perfect storm

 

As bloggers crowded round, as railbirds craned their necks to see, 1.2m chips found their way into the middle

Across the table the mega-short stack Jeff Kimber's eyebrows arched

Banzi had flopped the nuts and talked Rudling into calling. Rudling had Nine outs twice to scoop

The turn was a blank, the river was a blank

Rudling was out, the cry of "FINAL" went up, and Praz Banzi had 1.2m of the 3.7m chips in play for today's final at 2pm


Please join me then

and who is in the final?


These men


Praz Banzi 1,281,000

With a third of the chips in play Hit Squadder Banzi starts as clear favourite here. Winner of the inaugural GUKPT in Bolton in 2007, two WSOP Bracelets and 3rd in the WSOPE Main event, as well as a host of other cashers. Lifetime tournament winnings of $2.4m

Gary Lindsay 842,000

Gary is a Glaswegian, a Celtic fan and qualified into the event the night before Day One in a £250 Super Sat. An Online player predominantly on Ladbrokes he was down to 4x bb after the bubble burst, doubled up four times soon after and then took out Jon Prested in 11th in a massive pot when Prested 4 bet shoved on him, when he held Aces.

Chris Kyriacou 412,000

A Londoner of Greek Cypriot Extraction Chris is talkative. Through hands, after hands, off the table. Highest ever live cash dates back to 2004, £16,000 in a Vic Spring Classic. Beneath the patter, seems to have a great feel for situations, reads his opponents well

Manig Loeser 340,000

German Manig has a good pedigree in the last year. Cashed for $50,000 in the WSOP Main, won an EMOP event in Bulgaria, 9th in the WSOPE 6-Max, 2nd in an EPT side event...$302,500 of cashes within the last year. A quiet presence at the table but was extremely impressive throughout yesterday

Karl Mahrenholz 317,500


Hit Squadder, a driving force behind Poker Encore, Praz's buddy and heck of a player in his own right. Karl was chip leader for a lot of yesterday but progress stuttered a bit as the day drew on. Karl finished runner up to Praz in the inaugural GUKPT before winning his own GUKPT event in Cardiff in 2009. A string of results on both sides of the Atlantic over five years most recently 6th in the WSOPE Omaha last Autumn.


Jim Dunsford 190,500


Bearded Jim is quiet, undemonstrative and appears to play consistently and a little conservatively. His highest ever recorded live cash in the databases is £1,500 in a £300 UK festival event. He's already smashed that. Made this final largely by virtue of a great call for all his stack against Jon Spinks in a button/big blind battle with 19 left. He held, doubled up and here he is.

Ken Wong 110,000

Never stops smiling, which must be a good thing. A regular player in the Vic and elsewhere in London, Smiley Ken has three top 30 GUKPT Main finishes including 6th in the 2007 Grand Final. No less than 8 final tables in Vic festival events.

Jamie Roberts 109,500


Son of the legendary Ben Roberts, Jamie survived in part due to a great laydown of a full house mid yesterday and repeated double ups after he made the top 25 as the shortest stack. Found Aces in the right spots twice in this period to help him along the way. Already a high stakes cash and tournament player, and a Vic regular alongside his Dad, he spoke yesterday of how he could not believe he had made the final given he was down to 20,000 at 4-8k


Jeff Kimber 79,000


Jaffa Cake, a long term UK Circuit Pro and former journalist hailing from Newcastle. Long associations with Ladbrokes, Blue Square and the GUKPT and one of its fervent supporters he is playing this as part of the Firm Poker team. Jeff won a GUKPT in 2008 in Walsall and finished runner up in GUKJPT Thanet in 2009. 2nd in a $2,500 WSOP Omaha in the same year. This is now Jeff's Sixth GUKPT Main final table. Which may be a record and until proven otherwise I'll say it is!



Ladies and gentlemen, your finalists.

Speaking to Jim Dunsford he's from Shepherd's Bush, small tournament player and won a £250 live sat to get in

Dunsford, Lindsay and Wong all qualified via this route and there is a GUKPT Prize in each leg for the Live qualifier who lasts longer, £1500 worth of GUKPT event tournament buy ins through 2011

Jeff Kimber qualified Online, and has clinched the same prize for the Online Qualifier Last Longer


Another table dynamic for the three guys mentioned above
