Praz Bansi Wins Second GUKPT Title

Brit Pro Bansi Takes Down Another Poker Title At GUKPT London


Praz Bansi has proved himself on live felt once again after taking down his second Grosvenor UK Poker Tour title at the GUKPT London £1,500 main event.

Bansi, who topped a tough field of 245 to take home £101,020 from a total prize pool of £367,500, was also the recipient of the Tour’s first ever main event title in Bolton in 2007.

The final table included some extreme competition for first place with the likes of GUKPT finalist Jeff Kimber, Karl Mahrenholz, and EMOP Bulgaria champ Manig Löser.

The heads up was between Bansi and Loeser with Bansi dominating chip-wise and Loeser determined to take some back for himself. Eventually that is just what Loeser did, but soon after evening up the stacks, Bansi turned the nut straight versus the German’s flopped top pair and the two got it all in to decide their fates. Loeser received £67,070 for his efforts.

After he finished the final table off, the modest Englishman said that it was a pleasure to win his second GUKPT main event and that he had run well against his final table opponents.

Here are the final results and payouts:

1. Praz Bansi £101,020
2. Manig Loeser £67,070
3. Gary Lindsay £44,100
4. Karl Mahrenholz £26,640
5. Jamie Roberts £19,840
6. Ken Wong £16,170
7. Christopher Kyriacou £12,500
8. Jim Dunsford £10,110
9. Jeff Kimber £7,350

The next stop of the Tour is the Grosvenor Casino in Walsall and that will run from Apr. 24 to May 1.
