Sean Randall Wins $500k DTD Deepstack Nottingham

Sean Randall Wins $500k DTD Deepstack NottinghamSean Randall has won the Dusk Till Dawn £500k Guaranteed Deepstack tournament, after defeating a field of 910 players over three days to claim the title, as well as the £110,000 ($174,650) first place prize.
The final day’s action of the £560 buy-in event saw 22 players return to the Dusk Till Dawn Poker and Casino in Nottingham, and after four and a half hours of play the final table of nine was set. However, David Williams’ tournament hopes were cut short and after he was eliminated in 9th place (£6,500.00) the finalists were moved to a live streamed feature table.
At this stage, Danish Gandhi (11.97m) and Marios Andreas (9.61m) were way out in front as the chip leaders, with Sean Randall (2.8m) and Gary Jones (1.535m) languishing way behind in 6th an 8th spots respectively.
First to exit the arena was Darren Copus who got it all-in holding A-9 on an 5-4-9 flop against Lee Taylor’s 6-5. Unfortunately for Copus the turn and river produced a 3 and 2 to eliminate him in 8th for £8,500. Three and a half hours later, he was joined by Kieran Plater in 7th (£12,000), whose A-K shove foundered against the Q-Q of Sean Randall.
Next, Sean Belton’s pocket tens came off second best against Gary Jones’ A-Q, and so he walked away in 6th for a £17,000 payday, while Sean Randall (K-J) took care of  Lee Taylor (5-5), who then finished in 5th for £22,000
Sean Randall followed up by dispatching  Danish Ghandi in 4th (£30,000), and after Gary Jones eliminated Marios Andreas in 3rd (£43,000), the heads-up phase of the competition got underway between the start of the day chip minnows.
At this stage Randall held a 28.5m to 16.2m lead over Jones and not long after the duo were all-in with Randall’s J-J up against the Ad-8d of his opponent. With no help from the board, Jones had to settle for a runner-up finish worth £65,000, while Sean Randall was crowned the 2012 DTD Deepstack Champion.
The final table results were as follows:
1 Sean Randall £110,000
2 Gary Jones £65,000
3 Marios Andreas £43,000
4 Danish Gandhi £30,000
5 Lee Taylor £22,000
6 Sean Belton £17,000
7 Kieran Plater £12,000
8 Darren Copus £8,500
9 David Williams £6,500
