Mclellan Crowned Two-time Ukipt Champion (update)

Fast paced play on final table finishes up in record 3 hours 49 minutes

UKIPT Nottingham's record-breaking GBP 1 223 000 prize pool was taken by Duncan McLellan following six-days of intense action.

McLellan bested a field of 1 223 becoming UKIPT's fourth double champion and the first British player to achieve a double win.

Described as the fastest, and possibly most exciting, UKIPT final table ever, McLellan took the honours after three hours forty-nine minutes of play, another for the record books.

Early favourite and chip leader, Scotsman Willie Elliot's successful bluff early in the tournament against McLellan didn't work a second time around and ultimately led to his elimination leaving three at the final table.

Following Pearson's elimination, McLellan went into heads-up with sales director Angelo Milioto, agreeing a deal that would see McLellan take a guaranteed GBP 168,372 and Milioto GBP 143,728 leaving an even GBP 34 000 to play for.

Final payouts finished up:

1 Duncan McLellan, United Kingdom GBP 202,372

2 Angelo Milioto, United Kingdom GBP 143,728

3 Trevor Pearson, United Kingdom GBP 89,900

4 Willie Elliot, United Kingdom GBP 67,000

5 Ryan Spittles, United Kingdom GBP 51,700

6 Juan Benito, Spain GBP 38,400

7 Anthony Flynn, United Kingdom GBP 29,300

8 Ramey Shaio, United Kingdom GBP 20,800
