Bobby O'Donnell wins APAT Irish Championship

Bobby O'Donnell wins APAT Irish Championship

Tuesday, 27 September 2011

Amateur poker players from across the UK and Ireland gathered at the Macau Sporting Club in Cork over the weekend for the Irish leg of the Amateur Poker Association and Tour with Bobby O'Donnell winning the title.

After Matthew Baillie was eliminated in third place after unluckily pushing into kings on two consecutive hands it was left to O'Donnell and Ken Burgess to battle it out for the title. Heads up play didn't last long with all the chips hitting the middle on a K-7-K-4-K board. Burgess had 7-3 for a full high but it was no match for O'Donnell who revealed K4 for quads!

O'Donnell pocketed a first prize of €1,650 and a UKIPT seat for his efforts with Burgess taking €950.

The next stop on the APAT calendar is the sold out APAT Team event in Luton in October. Qualify for future APAT tournaments with a free £5 bonus at 888 Poker. Sign up here.
