UKIPT London winner Robbie Bull on dreams coming true and £100k scores
Yesterday was a big day for Robbie Bull who won his first major title and a huge £113,405 first-place prize beating talented Irishman Ian Simpson heads-up. Bull would be the first to admit (and did in the interview below) that he had to run good to take Simpson down, but with strong final table performances both here and at UKIPT Bristol (3rd, £33,300) Bull has staked his claim as a rising star.
Other players have cut their teeth on the UKIPT and gone on to other successes, including the likes of Jason Tompkins (EPT Sanremo, 5th - €171,000), Max Silver (WSOPE Main Event, 8th - €115,000) and Mick Graydon (EPT Deauville, 8th -€67,200). The UKIPT is a a solid stepping stone into a bigger poker world. In fact, just last night, Max SIlver got heads-up against Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst in the UKIPT High Roller, but more on that later.
