The fourth event of the inaugural British Poker Open went to Canadian tournament superstar Sam Greenwood, twin brother of Luc who won the opening event of the series. Greenwood added £110,400 to his stellar tournament resume that totals $20.3M, which puts him 25th all-time.
“I registered, went on this crazy heater and won every all-in basically,” said Greenwood moments after his victory. “It happens a lot in short deck; people go from having all the chips to having no chips. I spun 100,000 up to 1.5M.”
The final table started with five players and Danny Tang was unfortunate to bust out on the bubble. Cary Katz busted in fourth for £24,000 when he ran aces into the Q-10 of Greenwood, who made two pair. Anson Tsang busted in third when Greenwood made trip kings and a few hands later the tournament was over. Flink made a straight against Greenwood’s flush to end the tournament.
