Joeri Zandvliet Wins Second UKIPT Title in Dublin

Joeri Zandvliet

Joeri Zandvliet has won the UKIPT Dublin Main Event, his second title on the 2-year-old tour. This gives him an incredible two wins out of six UKIPT events played. HIs second title ties him with Nick Abou Risk, something fellow finalist (and eventual 4th place finisher) Max Silver had also been aiming for.

Runner up was Chuck Fabian, at the sharp end of the young Dutchman's end-game run of luck, as was 3rd place finisher Robert Csire. The final table overall, however, was one of the friendliest and most obviously delighted to be there of any on the tour; aggression was limited to the chips moving across the felt.

Of his experience at the Dublin Main Event, Zandvliet said, “It’s ridiculous to win a second time. It’s like a four day marathon…and then you win at some point.” That has indeed been his experience.

The UKIPT Dublin €500 Main Event brought 718 players to the Ballsbridge Inn, Dublin, from the 8th-12th September. The total prizepool was €348,230, divided amongst the 90 top finishers.
