Sam Holden Wins Late Night Poker

sam_holden

WSOP Novemeber Nine member and Team 888poker Ambassador, Sam Holden has added to his already impressive year by winning the 10th season of Late Night Poker and netting a cool $150,000. This comes just after his placing of 9th in the 2011 WSOP Main Event, and taking home $782,115 in prize money.

The UK televised series comprises 32 players battling it out to be crowned and presented the Late Night Poker trophy. This, and of course  for the $150,000 prize money that accompanies it.

Holden breezed his way to the final after leading his 8-player heat with $50,000 in chips, and a guaranteed place in the final.

After facing off with pros like Roberto Romanello, Andrew Feldman, Ram Vaswani, and James Dempsey, Holden found himself heads-up with Luke Schwartz. Holden, with a strong chip lead, called with K-Q when Luke went all in with A-J. The turn exposed a 9-10-J to give Holden a straight and his winning hand.

The unassuming Brit has now amassed over $937,000 in earnings for 2011. His next movements will be seen at the 2012 World Poker Tour in Dublin this January, and then also at the Aussie Millions in Melbourne.
