Just 19 of the 359 starters at the Irish Winter Festival are still in contention for the title with a number of familiar faces well placed for a shot at the €100,000 first prize.
Leading the way heading into the final table in Dublin is qualifier Declan Wallace on 877,000 but most eyes will be on the pros lying in second and fifth. The multiple GUKPT winner and Sky Poker pro Julian Thew lies just behind Wallace on 793,000 with Irish pro and part-time boxer John O'Shea looming not far behind on 641,000. Other notables to survive day two included Marc McDonnell on 269,000 and former Irish Open finalist Declan Connelly returns as one of the short stacks with 164,000. An added wrinkle in today's finale is that seven of the remaining players qualified for the IWF via paddypowerpoker.com but only six of them walk away with a seat into the 2013 Irish Open.The remaining 19 are guaranteed €2,700 with the winner set to walk away with €100k. The chip leaders are as follows:Declan* Wallace 877000Julian Thew 793000Daniele Nestola 788000Ronan Gilligan 729000John O Shea 641000Tim Hartmann 579000Francesco Macari 426000Jason O Toole 358000Ahmed Eydan 342000Thomas* Finneran 270000Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
