UKIPT Galway: Trevor Dinneen wins the Irish Poker Championship
The UK & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) is one of the most select poker tournaments in the United Kingdom. Since last July 27th, Ireland hosted the UKIPT Galway, which has 60 tournaments. The Main Event of 1,100 buy-in, which started in July 8th, is the key point of this Irish poker festival, but other events attracted the attention of a large number of players. The major events of this week were the final table of the High Roller tournament and the one of the Irish Poker Championship. 36 players have paid the High Rollers buy-in of 2,200, but only six players survived up to the final table. Sergio Aido Espina won the event and a gain of 24,450, after a few hours of battle with Kyle Maguire, Dermot Blain, Chris Day, Jan Przysucha and Niall Farrell. As a reminder, the Spanish won the WPT National Series of Barcelona in October 2012 and the NLH Event of the UKIPT London, in last month of March.
Always within the frame of the UKIPT Galway, the Irish Poker Championship gathered 52 players. Trevor Dinneen won this poker tournament of 2,500 buy-in, after a heads-up with Steve ODwyer, the winner of the EPT Grand Final 2013. This beautiful victory allowed the Irish to pocket 39,450, while Steve ODwyer settled with a gain of 27,840. At the rest of the classification of the final table, we find Marc MacDonnell, Ian Gascoigne, Thomas Hall, Max Silver and Peter Murphy. The UKIPT Galway continues its progress with the Main Event. Alan Gold has finished the Day 1A at the top, as he managed to play poker under best conditions, with 272,700 chips.
