Reece Lewis Wins inaugural World Poker Tour National London Event

After five days of quality poker play, Reece Lewis was crowned the first champion of the World Poker Tour National London

This was the first time the event has taken place, it cost £1,650 to enter and lasted for five days. When Lewis headed into the final table he had the third largest chip stack, however, the two leaders had more chips between them than the other six players combined.

Lewis quickly doubled his chip stack when the only women player hit rail after her nines came up against his kings. The next player to go was Carlo Citrone who had a tiny stack to begin with.

Before long just Robin Fisher, Elior Sion and Lewis were left at the table.

Fisher attempted a risky all-in play when he pushed over the top of Sion’s open raise and Lewis’ flat-call.

The move almost worked, Sion folded but Lewis made the call with Ks-7s. Fisher was holding Qs-9s and had two live cards, however, the first four cards didn’t help wither of the players and the river paired Lewis’ seven.

Sion was now trailing Lewis 4-to-1 in chips and it was a gap that proved too big to close. At the end of it all Lewis won the match with pocket aces and was crowned champion.
