Tom 'hitthehole' Middleton lands the perfect approach shot

Just one day after winning the biggest tournament of his life for €942,000, topping the enormous 1,234-man EPT Barcelona field, Tom "hitthehole" Middleton has teed himself up for a shot at winning EPT London.

Middleton, or "Middy" as he's known to many, last night won an EPT London package worth £8,200 in a £200 +£15 re-buy. goleafsgo41 also won a seat with Mike "Timex" MacDonald bubbling the package in 3rd place (although he still collected £1,050 for his troubles). Middleton qualified on PokerStars into the EPT Barcelona Main Event that he won, but, as these deal negotiations show, he didn't have 100% of himself. I think we can expect him to have a larger chunk in the British capital city this October.
