WESPA Championship gets underway in Las Vegas
WESPA Championship is getting underway today in Las Vegas, Nevada
There are 32 games in the Main Event over 4 days, with a best of 7
playoff for the top 2 at the end to decide the champion.
During the event, live stream on Twitch is available.
Alongside the championship event, a series of 4 side events is running,
which are named after the suits in a deck of playing cards. Many players
chose to play the Hearts event yesterday as a warm-up for the main event,
and the event was won by England's John Ashmore. Hopefully this bodes
well for a successful championship run in the coming days.
Good luck to all the UK players taking part this week!
The list of players representing the home nations in the main event is:
- Harshan Lamabadusuriya
- Lewis Mackay
- Jason Carney
- John Ashmore
- Natalie Zolty
- Wayne Kelly
- Femi Awowade
- Stewart Houten
- Jared Jonathon Robinson
- Bob Violett
- Donna Stanton
- Jack Moran

Also going along for the side events are James Wilkie, Sumbul Siddiqui,
Ruth MacInerney and Sanmi Odelana. James and Ruth played in the Last
Chance Qualifier for the main event on Friday, but just missed out on
winning a place.
