Tim Hartmann has been crowned 2012’s paddypowerpoker.com Irish Winter Festival. The German outlasted a 385-runner field in Dublin to scoop a first prize of €100,000.
Hartmann started the final table with a big chip lead and kept up the pressure throughout, working his way through a final nine that included Julian Thew, who busted after running into Hartmann’s aces. It was left to Patryk Pietnoczko to try and derail the Hartmnann express but despite putting up a valiant fight and prolonging heads up play to three hours, the Pole couldn’t overturn an initial 6 to 1 chip deficit. Pietnoczko looked well placed for a timely double up after getting it in with A8 against Hartmann’s A4. A 4 on the flop changed everything though and gave the German youngster the title and a six-figure score. The final table positions and payouts were as follows: 1st – Tim Hartmann – €100,0002nd – Patryk Pietnoczko – €56,5003rd – Ronan Gilligan – €35,0004th – Julian Thew – €28,3505th – Marc McDonnell – €22,3006th – Jay O Toole – €18,3007th – Daniele Nestola – €14,4008th – Ahmed Eydan – €11,4009th – Trevor Dineen – €8,400
