Alan Mansbridge is a London cabbie, from Essex. He has his cab parked outside!

He bought in direct

He asked me about some of the comments on here, and said he was disappointed at what he had heard from friends on texts.

I explained to him that some of the other final tablers had big supporters on here, and that he shouldn't take support for them or any comments towards him personally. I apologised for any offence caused, though.

He told me "I am just trying to get better, and improve"

No matter what anyone may think, a GUKPT win is a tremendous achievement, and £45,000 for a london cabbie who plays recreationally..wow!

Like you said Tighty, we don't mean offence by our comments, it's because we're passionate about supporting our friends. Sounds like a humble guy who's made a great achievement. I'm very sure people like Simon, Nick and Bens time will come, it just wasn't today

Great updates today, much funnier!!

Struggled today, got smashed up for 5 hours by the eventual champion, who was just golden today.

The action was so ridiculously slow it was hard work.

A 4th to go with the 2nd in Coventry last year so hopefully a trophy has to come sooner rather than later and I thought I had a great spot today but the cards never came and could do nothing with the cards I was dealt!!!

Tournament was a joy to play as usual and see you in Luton.

I'll be in touch to sort something out for a future live update probably Luton maybe a plan.

Cheers all

Well Played to everyone on the final table, and congratulations to Alan Mansbridge for winning what many seasoned pro's would love to have on their mantlepiece, a GUKPT trophy.

Whereas I really wanted simon to win from 3way (and my friends Nick and Ben - one of whom i had a decent financial interest in would have like to see them do well as well) I thought simon prolly played the best poker of the field and is well deserving of a title imo.

But I have a huge amount of respect for the "nonprofessional" recreational player, who ponies up the £1,000 or binks a satellite and sits down with players like Ben and Simon and takes them on, very few other activities would see an amateur take on very talented professionals and this is one of the things that makes poker such a great sport IMO

Fair to say he prolly hit a few cards along the way but he handled himself very well from what I saw, and as disappointed as I am that Simon couldn't take the title, I am very pleased for him, and we should all be congratulating him as it's a fantastic achievement, one of which I am jealous off.
