People often ask me if working in the poker industry helps my own game develop and I always answer yes. Why wouldn’t it help? Being around and having access to some of the best poker talent in the world has to help you to improve, doesn’t it?
One of the first people I ever met in the poker industry was Lee Davy. We both started our live reporting jobs for PokerNews at European Poker Tour Barcelona back in Season 7 and have since somehow managed to continue working in this amazing industry.
Lee and I both like to dabble in the world of online poker and have had varying degrees of success. We’ve each won a handful of poker tournaments, possibly proving that hanging around poker players helps your game, but now Mr Davy has definitely got one over on me because he has only gone and won a MiniFTOPS event!
Event #9 of the MiniFTOPS was the $22 buy-in Pot Limit 5-Card Omaha Super Stack. The tournament attracted 1,228 players who helped created a $24,560 prize pool. More than 20% of that prize pool is now in the Full Tilt Poker account of Davy after he went all the way and won Event #9 for a cool $5,022.52.
Davy found himself battling it out with two British players at the final table, the Star Wars loving “ObiWanKanobi” being one and Oliver “Olycrawford” Crawford being the other. The former finished in fourth place for $1,743.76 and the latter was Davy’s final victim of the tournament as he finished in second place for $3,315.60.
