Geilich Tops Genting Newcastle

Geilich Tops Genting Newcastle

Monday, 13 April 2015

The prolific Ludovic Geilich was the toast of the Tyne yesterday after claiming the latest leg of the Genting Poker Series in Newcastle.

The Glaswegian German already has a string of live tournament titles to his name including wins on the UKIPT, Eureka Poker Tour and most recently the Grosvenor 25/25 Series.

He added the Genting crown to his tournament CV after topping an impressive 248-runner field over the weekend.

After safely navigating his way through a final table that featured Andrew Leathem, Criag Granger and Nick Ramsey it was left to Darren Grosvenor to derail the Geilich challenge.

The recent GUKPT 25/25 Glasgow winner wouldn't be denied though and after half an hour of two-handed play he was celebrating another tournament triumph. The final hand was a classic flip with Geilich's Queens ending up with the best of it against Grosvenor's AK.
