praz bansi gukpt london winnerThe GUKPT was in Londons Grosvenor Victoria Casino (The Vic) for leg 2 of the best live UK poker tour and the final table was one jam packed with big names. The eventual winner was.

Praz Bansi went to the final table with a healthy chip stack of over 1.2 million which was 400,000 above anyone else and 800,000 above 3rd places stack. It was shaping up nicely for Praz but with loads of play left and some dangerous players at the table, it wasn’t going to be easy.

Bansi, as always played exceptional poker, and with some small bits of luck at crucial points, his lead improved and things never really looked in doubt. When down to heads up we saw Manig take on the huge stack of Praz who was 4:1 chip leader.

Manig played solid poker and at one point clawed it back to a 2:1 deficit against Bansi and then a slight lead. It was looking like it could turn into a real battle, but what seemed almost inevitable from the start of today’s play eventually happened, and Praz Bansi picked up another big title and a payday in front of other hit squad members and local support.
