There were 39 runners on the day, but four people left without signing out so we don't have finishing positions for them.

We had two ladies make it all the way through to the final four with Bryony Little dazzling everyone by coming back from the brink time after time. When it came to heads up both David Cohen and Gareth Jones played aggressive games, at one point both going all-in with what turned out to be identical hands of Ace seven!

In the end there can only be one winner, and this time it was David Cohen who walked away with 200! David will also be taking his quarterly final trophy back to his local venue, the Parkfield Inn, to sit next to last season's Manchester quarterly final trophy, won by Andy Paton, another Parkfield Inn player!

Finally we come to Walsall.

Due to staffing problems on the day and the overwhelming number of attending players we were unable to collect the full list of finishing positions.

1. Chris Nicol
2. Ian Bird
3. Rob Campbell
4. Adam Bailey
5. Richard Morgan
6. Darren Fletcher
7. Dave Whyle
8. Eddie Herbert
9. Penny Stirland
10. Sean Weir
11. Marvyn Malicki
12. James Cox
13. Anthony Turner
14. Vic Isaac
15. Daren Foley
16. John Shenton
17. Wayne Turnor
18. Warren Allen
19. Aaron Dodd
20. Craig Frost
21. Liz Maxted-Bluck
22. Tom Herbert
23. Anthony Parker
24. Stephen Hinton
25. Peter Bibbings
26. Leigh Roberts
27. Chris Carter
28. Dave Grimmett
29. Gav Roberts
30. Rebecca Court
31. Paul Eversden
32. Steve Woodhams

The casino at Walsall was absolutely crammed, with 140 players turning up to play in the tournament.

Play started late due to all the new registrations, starting at just after five, and lasted all the way through till 2am Sunday morning.

Congratulations have to go to the winner Chris Nicol who won despite Ian Bird starting their heads-up with a massive chip advantage. Ian got knocked out after going all in on an unfortunate hand and Chris took home the trophy and the 400 first prize after just ten minutes heads-up!

Special mention should go to Penny Stirland, who only started playing recently but was the only lady to make it to the final table. Penny was so chuffed she got everyone on the table to sign a poster for her to remember the occasion.

Another special mention should go to Tom Green, though he'd probably rather we didn't mention that he was first out. Better luck next time Tom!
