Moldova Constantin Erhan was the next player to head to the cashier, doing so to collect £3,030. An anonymous player called ‘RS’ joined Erhan with a ticket redeemable for £3,790.

James Mowbray saw his time at the final table cut short when he was knocked out in sixth place for £4,810, the second-highest live tally of his career. Ben Maregedzewho finished third in a £200 event in Coventry earlier this month for £14,916, came fifth and collected £6,440.

A career high of £9,360 worked its way to Arnel Casabar before Connell Parr dusted his stack in third, a finish good for £14,540. Parr’s exit left Khatri facing O’Neill, a player Khatri has crossed swords with many times. O’Neill, winner of the recent UKIPT London High Roller, and Khatri agreed an equal chop meaning both players walked away with £29,520.
