4 remaining with Irish young gun running with calm contention

We are on a 20 minute break here.

Young Irish man, from County Clare in the West of Ireland, is ruling the final table. He has built his stack up to just over 7 million chips. Which is over half of the total chips in play.

This is no mean feat when you consider that he's sitting on the right of Seamus Cahill, and Surinder Sunar eyeballing his every move.

A little back story on Niall is he has only played this event once before, back in 2009 and ended in 11th. He is consistant.

There is a side story to this final table.

Niall Smyth's sister, Lisa, is in Haiti at the moment. Working to build schools for children. She has donated 6 months of her time as a professional architect to do this. She is watching all the action on's live stream.
