Yes a poker fest last night for us in the UK
Started at 8pm and ended around 2.30am
1st Joe Beevers $1,000,000
Mr Joe as i call him (have played online with him a few times in the Hendon Mob league games) the business brain behind the Mob and on a great run of form (won GBPT $182,775 and 7th in HORSE - WSOPE) on of the original Poker Night Live players. Personally im well chuffed he won
2nd Marty Smyth
Was the winner of this years Irish Open and is a big cash game player as well. Also made the FT on Poker Million 5
3rd Julian Gardener
Despite coming 2nd in the WSOP
in 2002 (aged 24) and cashing in at least one event there each year since he does not play up to the limelight and prefers to play the big cash games online.
One of the UKs top players with some great results already and surely more to come.
4th Liam Flood
He has been around as long as the game itself lol (almost) he comes from a long line of Irish bookmakers and it was through him and (mainly) Terry Rogers that brought the game of Hold'em to Ireland
& then Europe
Irish Poker Open - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When poker on tv began he was usually seen as the Tournemant Director and still claims he is 'not' a professional poker player
5th Howard Lederer - $125,000
Not much needed to say about one of the biggest names in poker except to say he never really got going and is off to spend Xmas in Italy with the Lederer family.
6th Ian Cox
has come to the fore this summer after getting to the final tables of GUKPT games and London EPT round.
