Irish Open Final Table
In the early hours of the morning, 708 became 8 as the Irish Open Final table is set for later on today. Some well known UK players are still in contention including UK legend Ben Roberts, James Mitchell and Rob Sherwood.
Sherwood also gets some massive added value as he was the last Paddy Power qualifier standing and thus wins their Sole Survivor promotion which nets him €100,000 in sponsorship funds.
The final table was set when Yann Dion found his pocket queens run into the pocket aces of Paul Carr. Now everyone will have their eyes on the €600,000 first prize and looking over their shoulders at chip leader Santeri Valikoski.
UK player and world record holder Paul Zimbler won the Pot Limit Omaha side event yesterday for €36,000.

With all the action in Dublin we saw a rarity in Nottingham, an overlay in the Dusk Till Dawn £80,000 Guaranteed Deepstack. 243 players is still a pretty amazing turn out for a £300 monthly event, which made for a £7,100 overlay.
The eventual winner was Peter Wrigglesworth who defeated Glenn Henderson heads up for the £24,684 pay day.
