Its all over

Grosvenor regular Ganesh Rao battled his way through a top class field of 189 runners in leg 5 of the GUPKT tour at Grosvenor Newcastle to take down 1st place and a prize of £57175.00.

Ganesh also wins seat in the £3,000 Grand Final plus a seat in December’s Champion of Champion’s event. Ganesh can regularly be seen in the local freeze out tournaments in the Grosvenor and more often on the cash tables.

Ganesh from Sheffield is a doctor who now lives in Newcastle and has became an adopted Geordie and a gentleman with it may I say. As we were covering the event with live updates for the Newcastle Poker forum I know he fully appreciated our support there with him and also his small group of friends who railed him the whole time giving their vocal support.

The 2 hour heads up battle with Manchesters Ian Farrel was ended in the early hours when Ians 52 all in attempted steal was met by Ganeshs JJ to keep the Blue Square Trophy on home turf.

Other local players to give special mention to were Johnny "The Greek" Stamatelopolous and Lynne Beaumont who finished in the cash and highlighted in the full result given below.
