Jp Kelly : The first English winner for two years.

I thought I could call the WSOP media out on this one as I distinctly remember a Neil Channing backed winner last year. However, Martin Smyth is indeed a Brit but not English being from Belfast. I have a sneaking feeling the “Brits” will win another bracelet this summer with the quality of players coming across the pond. Many have been to Vegas before so may have learned from their mistakes of playing straight off the plane.

JP Kelly warmed up for the WSOP by spending a summer in Australia.

The last English winner was HendonMob player Ram Vaswani who beat fellow countryman Andy Ward in 2007.

“This is the highlight of my life” said JP as he was interviewed by Kristy Arnett of CardPlayer.kristy-jp-kelly
