EPT9 London: Ian Simpson wins the kickoff turbo

Ian Simpson won the first tournament of the London poker festival for £4,400 in the £110 turbo deepstack. It's not going to be the biggest first prize of the festival (in all livelihood it might be the smallest). A win is a win though, so let us say, 'Well done, Ian.'
