Mariusz “Mariusz80” Srok turned a £5.00 satellite buy-in into £12,675 in the first leg of the 2011-2012 Sky Poker Tour at Nottingham´s Dusk till Dawn poker club.
194 players took part in the £220.00 6-Max NL Hold´em including Sky Poker professionals Julian Thew and Darren Stanley, as well as last year´s Sky Poker Tour Grand Final winner James” LJamesL” Williams who, as part of his prize, gets all his buy-ins paid on the Sky Poker Tour this season.
Mariusz Beats Them All
The 194 players each started with 15,000 chips at the uk poker tournament on Saturday lunchtime, and play wrapped up on Sunday evening after Mariusz tore through the final table – eliminating four of his five competitors and capping it off when his A♥ Q♠ paired on the board with Q♣ to master Basharat Mahmood´s J♦ 9♠. His reward for his victory was £12,675 – not a bad return for a fiver – and Mariusz was propelled to the top of the Sky Poker Tour 2011/2012 Leaderboard Competition.
