After a gruelling two days, London-based Leon Campbell has taken down the £50,000 Side Event, winning £11,00 and the trophy (pictured).

With seven player players left, Campbell dodged a bullet in a massive pot where he managed to get away from quads on the river to preserve a strong stack. That key protection of his presence at the felt led to more chances and he ran out a comfortable winner when he went into heads-up with a commanding lead.

"I was 3:1 going into heads-up. The other guy wanted a deal, but c'mon you know me. It would have to be Sam Trickett opposite me for me to do a deal when I'm that far ahead heads-up!"
