Irish Winter Poker Festival: Rudling dominates the Day 1

In Great Britain, the big poker tournament of this month is the Irish Winter Poker Festival which is held in Dublin (Ireland) at Burlington Hotel. The main event of this tournament which was opened with a buy-in of € 1,000 + 100 brought together a field of 395 players. The 135 players in this field are the survivors of satellite and super satellite that took place the day before the Main Event (October 29). Of the 395 enrolled on Day 1, there were only 121 players qualified for Day 2. At the end of Day 1, it’s the Irish David Rudling who occupied the place of chipleader with over 170,000 chips on the table. Behind Rudling and and his big stack, we find John Keown (126,900), Mark Reilly (125,200), Matej Kokalj (122,200), Raigo Aasmaa (122,000), Philip Peters (116,900), Niall Smyth (114,300 ), Gerald David (108,800), Michael Mazilu (108,300) and Ciaran Taggart (100,700) who complete the Top 10.

The 121 survivors of Day 1 will join the tables of Burlington Hotel to compete in the 8 seats of the final table. The big surprise of this first day of the Irish Winter Poker Festival is probably the early elimination of top players like John O'Shea, Padraig Parkinson, Nicky Power, Neil Channing, and the November Niner of the WSOP Las Vegas that will be held in a few days in Rio Hotel & Casino, Eoghan O'Dea. The Day 3 will take place on Monday in which eight survivors of Day 2 will share the same table to compete for the title of the Irish Winter Poker Festival 2011.
