UKIPT Cork’s specially crafted trophy won’t be leaving the country today thanks to the efforts of Thomas Finneran in yesterday’s finale.
The Irishman put on an assured performance and maintained his dominant chip stack from start to finish.Overall it took just less than six levels for Finneran and Stephen McGrath to find themselves in a position to strike a deal and skim €5,000 from the winner’s prize to boost that of second place. First to hit the rail during the swift final table was Nicholas Newport. His exit opened the elimination floodgates as Pascal Tongi, Alexander Rhys-Davies, Deborah Worley-Roberts and Fridjon Thordarson all lost their chips in quick succession.Former chip leader Pawel Keller was the sixth player to fall when his flush draw failed to materialise, leaving McGrath to collect the last of his chips.Heads-up the match was extremely one-sided with Finneran leaving no doubt as to who was the best player.With his stack dwindling McGrath made a desperate shove with 5c 6c and after Finneran called with Qs 8s and connected with the board, it was game over and Finneran’s first major title. 1st. Thomas Finneran - €55,4402nd. Stephen McGrath - €45,6003rd. Pawel Keller - €24,9604th. Fridjon Thordarson - €19,3605th. Deborah Worley-Roberts - €14,7806th. Alexander Rhys-Davies - €10,5107th.Pascal Töngi - €7,8858th. Nicholas Newport - €5,910 The next stop on the UKIPT calendar is the Grand Final in London. Qualifiers for the event, which runs from 5-10 March are up and running at PokerStars.Image courtesy of Mickey May.
