PS Player Profiles

Seat 1: Tim Hong Wong, 45, Malaysia - 447,000
Wong, better known as 'Ken', is a 45-year old live poker player who lives in Vauxhall, London. Originally from Malaysia, Wong was a chef in a takeaway restaurant until 2006 when he started to play poker full-time. The 45-year old has promised to make the press team Kung Po Chicken if he takes home the title tomorrow!


Seat 2: Sergio Aido, 25, Spain - 1,342,000
Spaniard Sergio is no stranger to the UKIPT, having won UKIPT3 London last year - impressive since he's only been playing live poker for a year and a half. He is more familiar with the online game, and came 5th in the 2013 PokerStars SCOOP for $313,200. Sergio moved to Hammersmith eight months ago and although he professes to having spent most of the last few months concentrating on his poker, he still follows his local football club, Gijon.


Seat 3: Ben Vinson, 26, United Kingdom, 1,648,000
Ben Vinson is a vastly experienced 26-year-old professional poker player who is originally from London but now calls Derby home. That makes Dusk Till Dawn his local card room, but he's travelled far and wide in search of a game. He's made the trip to Macau on at least half a dozen occasions for high stakes cash games and has had big tournament scores in London, Deauville, Monte Carlo, Galway and Cannes, including a 13th place finish at the EPT Grand Final in 2012.

His Dad Alan is also a regular tournament player with over $750,000 in lifetime earnings; in fact Vinson Jr. must win tomorrow if he wants to better his dad's best live score of £83,000. If he does so then his Dad will be on hand to buy him a pint, as he's travelling up from London to rail.


Seat 4: David Clifton-Burraway, 30, United Kingdom, PokerStars Qualifier, 2,200,000
This 30-year-old Londoner is more used to playing cash games than tournaments but that hasn't stopped him from taking the chip lead to the final table. He made the transition from online poker to live poker about three years ago and now plays in £5/£10 games and higher at various London card rooms and says the biggest pot he's won is in the region of £25,000.

However, the Arsenal fan could've played against his all-time football hero Dennis Bergkamp had life panned out differently. A Youth Team prospect at Scunthorpe, the striker instead went to University and then did an MBA in America on a football scholarship. However, he says that if he wasn't playing poker he couldn't work a 9-5 job.


Seat 5: Tony Salmon, 50, United Kingdom, 1,996,000
Just like Robert Baguley did last year, Tony Salmon, 50, will be hoping to score one for the older gents and keep the UKIPT title in Nottingham. He's local to the club and qualified on Dusk Till Dawn Poker for just £100.


He's retired, having sold his company in 2008, and has been playing poker for six years. His biggest result came in 2008 when he finished 22nd in the Irish Open, winning €18,000. Although he's had several big scores at Dusk Till Dawn, he's already eclipsed his best cash here which is £8,500.


When not playing poker he likes to play golf and although he doesn't have an official handicap he reckons that he plays off 14. A father of three and grandfather of three, he has obviously passed on the poker gene, as his youngest son, who's 21, plays online with some success.


Seat 6: Ben Mayhew, 27, Bury St. Edmonds, PokerStars Player - 1,451,000
Professional poker player Ben is fairly new to the UKIPT, having played his first-ever stop of the tour at UKIPT4 Isle of Man last month. With at least £20,700 now guaranteed, Mayhew has now achieved his biggest-ever live win, with his previous record of £7,200 now obliterated.


He says, however, that it's all about the title for him and he will be coming back tomorrow with that at the forefront of his mind. Mayhew plays football for his local team, Stanton FC, but he says that he's sure his teammates will forgive him as he'll be buying the first round next week!

I would of loved to have watched a stream for this. I've seen Ben Vinson play on TV a couple of times now and he was rubbish every time!

Ben Mayhew raises UTG

Tony Salmon calls in the big blind

  two spades

Salmon check calls 70,000

 

Salmon check raises a 133,000 bet all in

Mayhew has about 700,000 behind and is well covered


Ben gives a frustrated smile, looks across at Slamon repeatedly for clues, and eventually folds

Salmon shows  three clubs

"nice one" says Ben, laughing

"Now stop messing with me" says the Businesslike Salmon

Its cagey stuff, generally, so I expect report volume will pick up when we have some confrontations

David Clifton-Burraway still leads ahead of DTD Online Qualifier Tony Salmon

Ben Vinson and Sergio Aido are side by side and eyeing each other warily in the odd pot they play together like a pair of lions about to battle for the affections of a lioness. I suspect they see each other as big threats here

Wong and Mayhew are either side of the dealer and the short-stacks of six


Ben Vinson's Dad Alan is up from London to rail, while on the middle tier 30 or so hardy sould are in the £100 side event
