Irish Winter Festival - just two tables left

Monday, 25 October 2010

The Irish Winter Festival field started with 347 players but only 18 remain in contention for the title which will be decided later today.

Leading the way going into the final day is Seamus Quinn followed by Adrian Reynolds and Day 1 chip leader Rory Rees Brennan. Each returning player is guaranteed at least €5,000 but they will all have their eyes on the €125,000 on offer to the winner.

The leading chip counts are as follows:

Seamus Quinn 525,000
Adrian Reynolds 501,500
Rory Rees Brennan 487,500
Charlie Harvey 447,000
Thomas Finneran 427,500
Zoltan Purak 387,000
Ivan Tononi 371,500
Dorlan Schick 352,000
Nicholas Verkaik 345,500

The €500 side event also comes to a conclusion later today with 22 players still in the hunt. Valdemar Uhre (186,500) has a handy chip lead over nearest rival Chris Dowling (130,100) and looks well placed to take the title.

Pavel Pravdukhin took the €100 Blind Man's Buff event, pocketing €1,985.

The action in Dublin resumes at 2pm today. You can watch live streaming of the Main Event final at the Paddy Power Poker blog.
