Chris O'Donnell tonight became UKIPT Brighton champion after beating Richard Hasancebi in a gruelling heads up to win £71,100. The online cash game player, dubbed 'Bobby Big Head' by his friends, picked up the chip lead halfway through Day 1 and always looked like a lock to make the final table. O'Donnell beat a record UKIPT Brighton main event field of 603 runners to win the trophy, more than twice that of last year, contributing to a £292,455 prize pool.
