£10,000 No-Limit Hold'em

The 2019 British Poker Open series will be played out between 2nd and 12th September at the Aspers Casino Newcastle. The first event £10,000 No-Limit Hold'em started off on Monday with a slow pace.

Day 1 may not have been a great start with a maximum of 26 entries, but the prize money was enough to attract players. Luc Greenwood championed the first win in the series history. The Canadian took £119,600 home after grabbing $850k worth of prizes at the recent EPT Barcelona.

Now, his total live earnings are at $3.8+ million. Emerging as a notorious winner Greenwood had his eyes fixed after a hot start. The Canadian ended the event saying, "I can't remember the last time I won a tournament; the money is obviously top priority but getting the win is awesome."

Final Table Results:

  1. Luc Greenwood - £119,600
  2. Steve O’Dwyer - £72,800
  3. Robert Flink - £41,600
  4. Sam Grafton - £26,600

£10,000 Pot-limit Omaha

The BPO continued on Wednesday with four-card action in £10,000 Pot-limit Omaha where George Wolff topped a field of 30 entries. This was his first-ever live poker tournament win, defeating Sam Soverel heads-up. Wolff entered the event with a sizeable chip lead over Soverel, one of the top high-stakes players in the game. The series has only just begun and all of these players have much more to play for in the days to come.

Final Table Results:

  1. George Wolff - £120,000
  2. Sam Soverel - £78,000
  3. Stephen Chidwick - £48,000
  4. Gavin Cochrane - £30,000
  5. Joni Jouhkimainen - £24,000
