An increase of 28 players on last seasons Regional Final, making 206 in total battled it out in the 1st of two West Midlands Regional Finals for season 3 09/10. This shows what a great presence Redtooth have in the West Midlands and we send out a big thank you to everyone for your participation.
The 10 man final table was set once Marie Taylor sadly exited in 11th place after a fantastic deep run this time around. Jabram Khalid from Rileys in Worcester held a narrow chip advantage with 170,000, with Ben Haddigan and Gavin ‘The Kat’ Carter starting with 160,000 and 150,000 respectively. Laura Hale was the first to be eliminated as her 15,000 chips soon deserted her and 7 others soon followed to leave Jabram Khalid and The Kat from the Gunmakers Arms in Wolverhampton to battle it out for this seasons title. Jabram Khalid was fortunate enough to tame Gavin Carter as his KJ was a long way ahead of Gavin’s K10 preflop and the board changed nothing as it ran out A89 J 5 in Jabrams favour. A deal was struck between the final 4 as they all settled for £200, leaving £60 on the table for the eventual winner. Our congratulations go to Jabram Khalid who is known as ‘Bobbi’ to his friends.
