(pokernews.com) – The inaugural Unibet Poker UK Tour took place at Brighton’s Rendezvous Casino this weekend and attracted 245 players to its £220 buy-in event, surpassing the £40,000 guarantee by £9,000. Claiming the lion’s share of the prize pool, and the coveted Unibet Poker UK Tour trophy, was local playerCurtis Lambert.

Lambert’s Hendon Mob page shows five live cashes prior to this victory, four coming in 2011 and the latest in April 2015. All five cashes were enoyed in Brighton’s casinos, with his April result being a runner-up finish in a £77 buy-in event at the Rendezvous Casino for £1,400, which happened to be Lambert’s largest score to date.
With only 15 players remaining in the hunt for the title, Lambert found himself in the envious position of being the chip leader and he used his dominant position to navigate his way to the final table, and then march on to victory.
Mohammed Khan, Paulius Mikenas, and Lambert struck a deal with three players remaining, which locked up at least £8,000 for the trio. Khan fell in third place before Lambert sent Mikenas to the rail in second place to become the tournament’s champion.
“I didn’t realize this event was taking place this weekend, so I turned up on Saturday expecting to play the regular £50 tournament,” Lambert said after his victory. “I managed to spin that up into the buy-in for the Main Event and, despite bluffing off most of my stack in the first level, I always believed I could go far.
“I’d like to thank Unibet, Caesars, and the Rendezvous for putting on such a great tournament. I can’t wait to play the Unibet Open London event and hopefully continue the run good!”
