James “Flushy” Dempsey emerged victorious at the Grand Prix Poker Tour Brighton Main Event for a first place prize of $40,000. In doing so, he beat a strong field of 2,100 at the Amex stadium to take his live earnings to $2,062,726. Flushy also boasts of $1,075,976 in online winnings.

224 players made it to Day 2 of the $109 buy-in tournament, ensuring at least $330 for their efforts. Nine players made it to the final table after a four-hour long battle.

After a series of eliminations, it was left between Dempsey and Tom Simm to fight it out for the title. The former held a 24m to 17.6m chip advantage over the latter.

The final hand of the contest was played when Dempsey (10d-9d) and Simm (8d-7d) went all-in on a Q-J-2 flop with two diamonds. With no help from the turn and river, Simm had to settle for a second place finish for $24,000.
