Gray almost became a GUKPT winner in April 2014 when he finished as runner-up to Andrew Tengin Edinburgh. This weekend, Gray made amends for that close call by defeating Yiannis Liperis in heads-up play, after the pair struck a deal, to get his hands on his first major live title.
Gray went into heads-up action with a 3,180,000-2,325,000 chip lead, but that did not stop him discussing a deal with Liperis. Those negotiations failed, and heads-up play began.
After 30 minutes of play, during which time the chip lead exchanged hands a couple of times, the players opted to take £61,000 each and play for the remaining £8,000.
Next up for the GUKPT is the season-ending Grand Final. This takes place at The Poker Room, above the Grosvenor Victoria Casino in London between Nov. 22-29. You can qualify for it at Grosvenor Poker which if you download via PokerNews, you can grab a 200-percent, up-to-£1,200 first deposit bonus.
