I have just read his blog that shows he has won the Newcastle poker forum league and his prize is a £1K seat in the GUKPT and to be honest this shows there is some justice in the world.
Fantastic couple (him and his wife) that we met at the CPC and whom I have ran in to a few times since. Always rooting for local Newcastle players and in my experience if he can help anyone out then he does. Also him and his son put a load of work in setting up the fantastic Newcastle poker forum. His blog and forum both linked on the right hand side of my blog.
Also I have to admit when I 1st met him I thought his game needed some work, then in recent times when I have played with him you can see he has developed into a very good poker player.
I am sure he will be competitive in the GUKPT and GL to him and any other Newcastle poker forum memebers who play (and me of course !!).
