British professional poker players Simon Deadman and James Rann both warmed up for this weekend’s WPT 6-Max Championship in some style by taking down a WPT Knockout side event on August 6.
WPT Knockout: $100K Gtd [1-Day Event]
Deadman was one of 271 entrants in the $530 buy-in WPT Knockout, a one-day tournament with $100,000 guaranteed. A prize pool of $135,500 was created and half went onto the heads of all the players with the remaining 50% being shared among the top 40 finishers.
With bounties included, the least any of the eight finalists could win was $2,421. This went to Austria’s Viktor Zsemlye. The Austrian was joined on the rail first by Guntis Aleskins then Brazilian Victor Bergara.
Fifth-place and a combined prize worth $7,127 went to Gytis Lazaununkas before UK-based Romania star Alexandru Papazian collected a combined $8,690 when he busted in fourth.
The penultimate elimination of the tournament was that of Josh McCully who played all the way over in New Zealand. McCully walked away with $9,244.
McCully’s exit left Deadman and Santtu Ojala heads-up for the title. The one-on-one battle went Deadman’s way and he scooped a combined prize that weighed in at $25,382, leaving Ojala to bank a still more than respectable $17,364.

|3||Josh McCully||New Zealand||$7,557||$1,687|
|4||Alexandru Papazian||United Kingdom||$5,456||$3,234|
WPT Knockout: $75K Gtd [1-Day Event]
Rann won the $55 buy-in edition of the WPT knockout and got his hands on the lion’s share of the $75,000 prize pool. Rann defeated Lithuania’s TB to pad his partypoker bankroll with a combined prize worth $9,121, all for a $55 buy-in! TB secured a $6,194 consolation prize.
Ran came ever so close to becoming a WPT champion back in 2019 when he finished third in the $3,300 WPT UK Main Event at Dusk Till Dawn. That netted Rann $168,500, the second-largest prize of his live career. Now he has another chance of WPT glory this weekend.
