ACE HIGH: A poker whizz from Brampton is celebrating after bluffing, betting and raising her way to a national tournament win.

Lynsey Mitchell, 24, beat off competition from a male-dominated field of 99 qualifiers to lift the UK National Poker League trophy in Windsor.

Miss Mitchell, who has been been playing poker for 12 months, qualified for the final of the pub-based competition by earning points at weekly pub tournaments in Huntingdon, Brampton and St Neots.

She said: "There were a few fish (poor players) in the tournament but generally it was a high standard of play and I was delighted to win."

INFORMATION: The next season of the UKNPL is running in pubs across Huntingdonshire. For more details contact Tom Burton on 07787 526168.
