ESC/MCV Industry Poker Tournament Reaches Dramatic Climax

Nigel Taylor, part-time stand-up comedian and Bastion business development manager, was hailed the computer and video games industry's best poker player last night as the ESC/MCV Industry Poker Tournament, sponsored by Take 2 and 2K Games World Poker Tour, reached its dramatic climax.

100 industry poker players assembled at the Gutshot Poker Club in Farringdon. At 7:00pm, 10 tables, each comprising 10 players, began playing hands of No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em. The nine players with the most chips met on the top table at 10:30pm, in a thrilling game of winner takes all eventually won by Taylor.

Nigel Taylor offered: "I played them like a Stradivarius. It was a brilliant night, and I look forward to defending my crown at the next event."
