The only thing better than a £20,550 return on an $11 investment is not having to make the investment in the first place. Ioannis Liperis managed to pull this off when he took a free $11 tournament ticket via the “click and collect” promotion at partypoker, and used it to win the DTD200 6-Max event, plus a £550 ticket for the MILLIONS tournament.
Players gathered in Nottingham for two days of play, the second of which saw Former DTD200 champion Basharat Mahmood fall before the money. Forty places paid out and the final table was officially set at six places.
Richard Dawson took home the final-table minimum guarantee when he pushed his stack all-in on a 10-3. He regretted the move once called by James Ablott, whose queens dominated even after Dawson managed to pair his 10. Sixth place earned him £4,800.
Ablott’s good luck didn’t last and he pushed all-in from under the gun only to be busted by Wayne Davison’s pair of nines. Ablott flopped trip aces but still couldn’t manage a win after Davison scored a full house. Franco Menchella Jr. was next to go when a fourth-place elimination paid him £7,150. He had just doubled his stack when he shoved all-in with a K-Q. Davison called with an A-Q. While both managed to pair their queens on the river, the ace got the last word and Davison scored a good-sized pot.
Liperis got in on the action to bust the front-runner next when he shoved all-in on the river. Davison called quickly but was overtaken by a full house and went home in third, setting heads-up between Paul Allen and Liperis.
It was a clear-cut final hand between the pair. Allen moved all-in on an K-Q and Liperis decided to test his luck on an unsuited A-5. The board paired both of the latter’s cards and left Allen in the dust. He collected £12,600 for runner up.
