Tuesday, 27 October 2009


Wow what a night. My laptop broke so it was a frenzied night of repairs while I watched the action unfold at the final table.

Igor Kurganov this bloggers enemy for the tourny went out in 5th followed by fellow non-Irish man Matej Kokalj who had a mountain of chips going into the final table.

Three Irishmen battled it out for the 143,00 first place with Michael O'Sullivan beating Michael Murphys Q7 with his QQ. Very exciting stuff.

The best three things about the IWF 09
1.Liam Floods happy birthday serenade to a clearly mortified PadddyPower assitant.
2.The punch-up at the end of day 2.
3.An Irishman took home the crown again!!!!
