Keith Johnson wins inaugural Eureka Poker Tour title

Nick Wright

Keith Johnson has won the first ever Eureka Poker Tour event and bagged €58,400 for his troubles. He defeated Spanish PokerStars qualifier Antonio Dieguez Rodriguez in a short heads up battle with Johnson's [Kc][Jd] holding against Rodriguez's [10c][6c] on the final hand. Johnson winning the tournament with a hand that shares his initials was a lucky coincidence, but the real story lies in the fact that Johnson was 19th of 20 coming back today and that final hand capped a remarkable turn around for the British player.
