Australian poker lovers saw a British card ace emerge victorious at a recent high-profile event in Sydney.
Scottish poker pro Gordon Huntly took first place and a cheque for $226,812 after taking down the Sydney Main Event of the 2012 Australia and New Zealand Poker Tour.
The poker player managed to see off the threat of Liam O'Rourke who walked away with $144,754 and Anthony Aston, who rounded out the top three.
Stewart Ballard and Jason O'Brien completed out the top five of an event that took in some 14 hours of play.
"Huntly remained completely composed throughout the final table and picked his spots perfectly against some tricky opposition," the ANZPT said of the worthy winner.
"They say that poker isn't a sport, but after a 14-hour final day, you have to say that Huntly showed superb stamina and concentration, and appeared the freshest player at the table when things got tough into the wee hours of the morning."
