Greekman “Ionannis Triantafyllakis” sealed the win - Irish Poker Open

The dust is now settled after four days of poker battle in the poker room of Hilton Hotel-Double Tree, in Dublin. It is actually about the € 3,500 buy-in Irish Poker Open Main Event which has just been wrapped up with Greece’s Ioannis Triantafyllakis notching the win by topping a field of 300 players. On top of the chip count at the start of the ultimate day (on Monday, April 6) was local legend “Donnacha O'Dea”. He entered the game with more than 2 million in chips. He cruised past Declan Connolly, the one who battled it out for his third Irish Poker Open title repeat, and defending United Kingdom & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT) champion, Kevin Killeen. Despite his gigantic chip lead, O'Dea failed to win the title. He fell to 5th place following an unsuccessful clash against Germany’s Andreas Gann. Few hands later, Andreas Gann was also sent to the rail. A number of world famous poker players would fall in succession there-after, engraving Kevin Killeen and Loannis Triantafyllakis’ way to the final showdown.

Early at the beginning of the heads-up, both men agreed on a deal to share the prize-pool’s remaining. It would see € 197,500 of prize for the Greekman, and € 192,500 for Ireland’s Killeen. The rest, amounted to € 12,000, would be awarded to the eventual winner. For over an hour of face-to-face clash, both men had exchanged the lead many times. But it wasTriantafyllakis who finally secured the win thanks to his ability to keep on rolling all along the battle. It is worth noting that this IPO title is the first-ever big feat of Triantafyllakis.
