Graham Peckover wins PPUKT Leeds

Graham Peckover took down the fourth leg of the PokerPlayer UK Tour for a £2,985 payday after a heads-up battle with fellow local player Graham Hinchcliffe. The heads-up players did a deal for the money and played on for the added GUKPT main event seat, the title and the trophy.

Peckover went into heads-up with a chip lead, but Hinchcliffe managed to claw back the lead before a hugely decisive hand came. The two players got it all-in with Hinchliffe’s Kings against Peckover’s A-8. Hinchliffe hit a set of Kings when the flop was 10-K-2 but the board ran out J, 3 to give Peckover the flush. In the final hand, Peckover had A-4 vs Hinchliffe’s 2-10 and the board came out 3-7-8-6-8. Peckover praised the other players on the final table, following his win, and admitted he needed a little luck to finish off Hinchcliffe.

‘There were some very good players at the final table,’ Peckover said. ‘I think I can play the game. I did get that element of luck with the A-8 vs Kings hand, but the best player in the world needs some luck.’ The PokerPlayer UK Tour, in association with Grosvenor Casinos is the best low-stakes tour in the UK with added GUKPT seats and a full GUKPT structure. This was the fourth leg of the tour, with previous stops hitting Newcastle, Brighton and Coventry.

The Grand Final of the tour takes place on November 17/18 at the Grosvenor Victoria in London. The £165 main event will have an added GUKPT main event seat and you can qualify online at Grosvenor Poker.
