Sam Holden Wins Late Night Poker


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 courseĀ  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.
