David Lloyd has won £22,320 for his victory in the UKPT Brighton Main Event.

This is not Lloyd’s first live tournament success, last month he finished eighth in the GUKPT Reading Main Event and won £2,270.

By the final day of play there were 14 players left and Lloyd started 13th in chips. However, within the first twenty minutes of play Lloyd managed to double his chip count.

Rajinder Kumar opened and then called after Lloyd three-bet all in. Kumar had Q, J to Lloyd’s A,Q, the board ran out Q, 3, 5, 10, 10 to help Lloyd increase his stack to 240,000.

Two hours later the final table was set and after some tense play Lloyd found himself heads-up against Piers Whyman. The two players were almost leveled in chips; Lloyd had 1.9 million while Whyman had 2 million.

In the end Lloyd won when Whyman’s hand showed K, 5, Lloyds showed A, 10 and the board read 7, A, K, 3, 2.
