Padraig O’Neill Wins EMOP Dublin; Takes Home €32,510

Padraig O'Neill

The final event from Season four of the European Master of Poker (EMOP) took place in Dublin, Ireland over the weekend; the highlight of which was the €1,100 buy-in Main Event.

The Main Event attracted a lower than expected crowd of 124 players, but the prizes on offer were still not to be sniffed at, as the eventual winner boosted their bankroll by an impressive €32,510. That winner, and the final champion of this seasons EMOP, was Ireland’s Padraig O’Neill.

O’Neill defeated Frenchman Marc Chahmiran heads-up to get his hands on what could be the last EMOP trophy ever awarded (the future of the tour is in doubt due to the IGT network which promotes this tour being in the process of closing down) and the title of champion. O’Neill, who finished fifth in this season’s PokerStars sponsored UKIPT Dublin Main Event, started the one-on-one battle with an almost 4:1 chip advantage and it was just too much for Chahmiran to stage a comeback.

The final hand saw the chips go into the middle whilst Chahmiran held {A-}{J-} to O’Neill’s dominating {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} and when Chahmiran could not come from behind, O’Neill was announced as the EMOP Dublin champion.
