WATCH as Jake Cody Puts $60,000 UKPC High Roller Win On Black!
Last night, the partypoker UK Poker Championships finished with Chris Brice winning the Main Event for a whopping £187,500 ($262,881).
That wasn't the only event that was played out, though, as there was a £2,200 high roller with a £200,000 guarantee that was down to a final table as well. In the end, Jake Cody came out on top winning the trophy and £42,670 ($59,992).
Where others might have celebrated with a bottle of champagne and a night on the town, Jake Cody headed to the roulette to wager all of his winnings. With a massive crowd gathered, he put the full £42,000 (and the trophy) on black!
Dusk Till Dawn casino owner and poker lover Rob Yong himself was the one to spin the ball. With the crowd chanting "Black! Black! Black!," the ball fell on Black 22!
Cody doubled his £42,670 wager, getting paid out £85,340 ($119,882) as the crowd erupted. We're sure Cody used that £85,000 to buy some rounds.
There were several people filming the action on their phone. Antonius Samuel uploaded the following video to Facebook:
