The latest leg of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) currently running at The Vic in London is nearly over, with the series set to wrap up on August 27.
Among the big winners to emerge from the series was Ravi Sheth who recently took down the £550 GUKPT Midi Main Event and collected £48,550.
Final Table Results
The £550 GUKPT Midi Main Event attracted a total of 369 entries to create £184,500 in total prize pool. Those who made it to the top 34 walked away with some cash, including players well-known in the UK poker circuit such as Michael Howard, Martins Adeniya and Lorenc Boci.
The field dwindled down to just nine during the final action, with Iwan Jones becoming the first player to bust, taking home £3,190 for his 9th-place finish.
Following Jones to the rail was Karim Louis who finished 8th for £3,900. Chris Johnson and Brandon Sheils took the 7th and 6th spots respectively with £4,600 and £6,020 in winnings.
Callum Gordon won £8,330 for finishing 5th, while Garry Bush took home £12,400 for finishing in 4th place. Jamie Dwan was then eliminated in 3rd place for £19,660, setting up heads-up play between Sheth and Arian Hassankashani.
Sheth outclassed Hassankashani to claim the top prize, and that victory came just two weeks after he finished 4th in the £3,300 No-Limit Hold’em World Series of Poker (WSOP) Super Circuit Main Event at the WSOPC Super Circuit Series in London.
That final table finish earned him his largest score to date of £140,000 ($178,387). With his recent win, Ravi Sheth’s live cashes have climbed to nearly $270,000, most of that he won in 2023 alone.
