75 players turned up to battle it out for the 5th NPF Anniversary Cup which was eventually taken down by relatively new and active member, AlexKnight. The G Casino hosted the event and guaranteed the pot at £2,000 but this was met with a total prizepool of £2250.
Once again the tournament was filled with the active members but also a fair few newbies who were experiencing their first NPF event. Mr Entertainment made a return to the mic and got the tournament started.
Alex held a big chip lead of 183,200 that he maintained for much of the final table being responsible for a lot of the eliminations but also some double ups. It was not until some aggressive action between The Hazbo King and Groomi that he lost the chip lead. Groomi won the standard NPF feature most drunk person award at the final table and was eliminated in 6th place.
The Hazbo King’s favourite hand 10 7 eventually cost him a lot of chips when he was up against Alex’s A9 that won him back the chip lead. Celia CDawd the last standing female player was eliminated in 3rd place. This left the chips very even until the chips went in with Alex’s top pair vs middle pair on the flop took him to over 90% of chips in play. It was not over yet as Alex was prepared to wait for a better hand to avoid doubling The Hazbo King up.
It eventually went to an all in pre with Alex holding K2 and Hazbo calling with 910. Alex’s hand held and was most delighted about getting his hands on the cup.
The final finishing positions were as follows:
1. AlexKnight – £675
2. The Hazbo King – £518
3. C Dawg – £382
4. roxytara – £225
5. KENLOCK – £113
