Sam Greenwood wins short-deck event at British Poker Open



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.
