888Live Local MK finalists

The word “overlay” is one of the most popular terms among poker players of all levels.

At the Aspers Casino in Milton Keynes in England, which marked the fifth stop of 888poker’s live local tournament series, there was one last weekend.

And that puts “MK," as they like to call it, on the poker map.

It wasn’t huge, as there were 116 entries in a main event with a £220 buy-in and £25,000 guaranteed, but it still put a smile on a lot of faces.

In the end it was a local player Mohamed Muse who collected all the chips and a check for £6,250.

Lithuania, UK Finish 2-3

The most prominent player in the field was Eleanor Gudger, who has already a low buy-in title to her name as she won the WPT 500 event in Nottingham last November.

Earlier this year we spoke with her about her transition to life as a full-time poker pro.

Gudger didn’t last long enough to make it to the final but 15 other players did and secured a minimum payout of £450 -- more than twice the buy-in.

Mantas Leonavicus from Lithuania came second for £4,150 while British player Ryan Cooper took third place and £3,000.
