PokerStars UKIPT High Roller – Dubach’s Biggest Score

shutterstock_125989475With the UKIPT Main Event finished and now the European Poker Tour London underway, we could be forgiven for completely missing the UKIPT High Roller event that has been playing out for the past couple of days, yet we like to promote all things British.
This event was a two day affair, with it originally attracting 246 players who had been happy to part ways with a £2,150 buy-in in an attempt to turn it into more money for their poker bankrolls. That number brought a decent prize pool of £477,280 and meant that just 28 of those players would be getting paid out.

This is especially the case when it involves some big names in the European poker scene, such as the European Poker Player of the Year Marvin Rettenmaier and of course the PokerStars Team Pro Vicky Coren.

However, neither of those two managed to get their hands on the first place payout of £101,950 as this time it was the turn of the Belgian Marc Daubach. He played an exceptional tournament from start to finish across the two days ending up as the only player remaining and the biggest score in his career to date of £101,950.

With regards to PokerStars Team Pro Vicky Coren, she had an excellent Day 1 and was more than holding her own on Day 2 until she got to the final table. She was the first player from that table to be eliminated, with her taking home £7,650 for her efforts.

She certainly did better than arguably the best player in the world right now though, with Marvin Rettenmaier, who is not only the European Player Of The Year for last year but currently ranked number one in the Global Poker Index top 300 tournament players in the world, only managing a 27th place finish for £3,400.


Eventually though, Daubach was too strong for everybody else on the final table, despite it being full of big names like Coren, Zinman Ziyard, Tom Hall and the ever consistent German Martin Hanowski. He thoroughly deserved the win and will hopefully build on his biggest live poker score to date.

How It Finished!

Marc Daubach – £101,950

Byron Kaverman – £67,980

Martin Hanowski – £41,410

Zimnan Ziyard – £32,930

Gautam Sabharwal – £25,490

Tom Hall – £18,050

Gordon Huntly – £14,230

Joao Barbosa – £10,620

Vicky Coren – £7,650

With this event now over and done with, you should be turning your attention to the EPT London, with it currently playing through Day 1b. Pop back tomorrow and we will have a report on what happened waiting for you.
