Game over man. game over

Returning from the break and the players have reached a deal. With the blinds getting very large and the chip counts close an equal split has been decided upon, with Colin Wu declared the nominal winner and taking the grand final seat!

Colin Wu, Robin Yiltalo and Rory Mathews all collect £20,500.


At the break Colin Wu is chip leader but there’s not much in it.

Scott scotched

Robin Yiltalo raised to 42k on the button and Phil Scott moved all-in from the big blind. Yiltalo called immediately with Q Q, which were in good shape against Scott’s A 8. However, it looked like Yiltalo was about to suffer his second bad beat in quick succession when the flop fell 9 6 J, but it wasn’t to be for Scott as the turn and river were T 4. He leaves the tournament in 4th place and trousers £7300.
