PokerStars LIVE crowns new champ, adds leaderboard
The magic of The Hippodrome and the Spring Classic brought the sun out, and it certainly shined bright for first place finisher Alan Pike.
With 161 entries and 23 re-entries, the prize pool once again smashed through the £25,000 guaranteed prize pool and finished with more than £46,000.
After a four-way deal, JJ Hazan and Alan Pike went into an active heads up and agreed a further deal to take an additional £1,000 - with £1858 and the trophy to play for.
A couple of all-ins saw the chip lead swap ends a few times until Alan's queen-jack made it through to claim all the stacks. Alan took home more than £10,000 for a buy in of £250 and now gets a free entry into The Summer Classic.
Next up at PokerStars LIVE @ The Hippodrome Casino is the UKIPT Series April 11th - 13th, details of which can be found via the PokerStars LIVE London dedicated website.
