Vincent Diver Wins Prestigious Live Event

$5 satellite online poker qualifier Vincent ‘vd12345’ Diver made history by scooping the biggest ever PKR Live payout when he won the PKR Live III main event at London’s Loose Cannon.

The 21-year-old community favourite from Surrey followed in the footsteps of previous winners Karl ‘discomonkey’ Fenton and Philip ‘escalope’ Conneller to win the main event title at PKR’s third ever live event and take home a $33,500 first prize.

In the toughest PKR Live field to date, the youngster showed his quality from the off, busting the very first player out of the tournament out when his pocket aces saw off ‘HYPERGAMBLER’s Q-Q to gain an early chip lead. Vincent continued to show his class throughout the two day event before eventually finding himself heads-up against UK tournament circuit regular Toby ‘badboy579’ Lewis. Buoyed by the huge support from the buzzing rail of followers, the Brit played solid poker – slowly taking chunks off his rival’s stack until the decisive hand brought him victory and a significant bankroll boost when his pocket twos held up for the win.

The PKR forum members were rejoicing once more when the $200 Bounty tournament was taken down by another well-known player in the PKR.com community – Irishman Karl ‘karlthekiller’ Sinnott who outlasted a strong field to scoop $5,350 and priceless bragging rights.

PKR.com CEO Malcolm Graham said, “We are delighted with the turnout. PKR Live has become a regular fixture on the PKR calendar and both players and staff alike look forward to a fun filled event, with top-quality poker.”
