Nigel Dempsey in action at the DTD100 event where he turned pennies into £6,435!

This week we interviewed Nigel Dempsey on his recent success after scooping an impressive £6,435 from a FREE partypoker Click & Collect ticket.
In many ways, what Dempsey has achieved is special, after all, he’s turned a fraction of the buy-in into a significant payday in any recreational player’s poker results.  In another sense, it’s not unique at all, after all,  Dempsey won a $1.10 Click & Collect ticket and just four days later, he has a four-figure score to his name.
We asked him to tell us a little about how he qualified for the DTD100.
“I played the click and collect on Wednesday for $1 then $5 and $27 into the Day 1 online on Thursday. I came [to play the DTD100] today with 176,000 chips and won £6,435!”
Dempsey is rightly delighted, and despite having been a face to be found at Dusk Till Dawn in the past, he’s not even been in the country recently. That didn’t stop him winning big.
“I’ve been living abroad for five years and not played here for two years.” Dempsey told us, as well as saying how much he thought of the structure, one that is more akin to tournaments with much higher buy-ins than just £100+10 on a Day 1.
 “There was a lot of play even though I was short stacked with 18 left, having four big blinds, but I won multiple flips to make the final table.”
Once down to the final eight, Dempsey had work to do, but he ploughed through the field, along the way winning a seat into the forthcoming DTD1000 tournament. The DTD1000 tournament takes place every month at the UK’s favourite poker club, with a huge £500,000 guarantee. We asked him if he was excited to have booked his seat simply by making the final five.
“Yes, I want to keep the luck rolling.” Could that fortune be making its way to the Caribbean for the Caribbean Poker Party? “Of course! Some of my friends have already won the $10,000 package so I’ll be looking to satellite in on partypoker.”
