David Hill has played – and been enthusiastic about - poker for so long that the exact year of his introduction to the game is hazy, but the Isle of Man resident has only ever played one other big live event – this tournament last year. Hotel manager Hill, 43, used to run the cardroom at the Palace Casino down the road from the Villa Marina, and now plays occasionally both live and online, where STTs are his usual game. Hill won two seats to the UKIPT Isle of Man Main Event and has taken a day-by-day approach, saying that simply getting through the day was the plan each day. As for what he would do with top prize money, he simply says, “I’m not thinking that far ahead!”
