Nick who qualified online was chip leader after completion of his start day 1b, and continued to accumulate chips most notably from Liv Boeree on 2 monster hands which gave him more confidence, as he made his way to the final table and ultimately to pick up the UKIPT Edinburgh Title.
In total 401 players took part and made up yet another exceptional field for the UK’s newest poker tour, the tour now heads to Ireland for the UKIPT Dublin in September and you can win your seat just like Nick and many other other big cash winners.
