UKIPT Manchester: Day 3 level 28 (blinds 40000-80000, ante 5000)

ukiptthumb.JPG12.52am: Joeri Zandvliet is the UKIPT Champion (£63,200)
It only took one hand of level twenty to find our champion and that man is Dutchman Joeri Zandvliet. All the chips went in pre-flop with Ellwood holding A♦Q♠ to Zandvliet's 9♥9♣.

The flop saw the Brit take the lead when it came 5♠6♠Q♣. The turn brought a sweaty 8♦ meaning any nine or seven would end it here.

The river came......9♦! to make Zandvliet's set making him the inaugural UKIPT Champion.

We must tip our hats to Jack Ellwood who was our 2nd place finisher and he take home£37,500 or his fine performance.

That's all from us folks. The full wrap of today's dramatic events will be with you shortly. From Manchester we say goodnight and thanks for reading
