Philip Baker Wins the Irish Open Hendon Mob Championships
Table Of Contents
Philip Baker found himself among the big winners at partypoker this week when he came out on top in the €265 buy-in The Hendon Mob Championships.
The tournament drew in a crowd of 233 players and 39 of those starters received a slice of the €58,250 prize pool. A plethora of British and Irish stars made it into those money places. Such luminaries as Ben Dobson, Gerard Walsh, Will Kassouf, and Dean Clay cashed, the latter finishing in 13th place despite feeling the side effects from a COVID-19 vaccination!
Four British and Irish grinders made it to the nine-handed final table. Lukas Vymyslicky and Craig Sweden busted in seventh and sixth before Unibet Poker ambassador Dara O’Kearney.
Baker was the last Union Jack sporting player and he got the job done, defeating David Hu heads-up to bank the €11,397 top prize.

Nemeth Helps Himself to the Biggest Prize of the Series So Far
Andras Nemeth added the 2021 Irish Open High Roller title to his ever-growing list of poker victories. This win came with the festival’s biggest prize to date, an impressive €33,688.
Only 52 players bought in for €2,100 and Nemeth outlasted them all. He combated at the final table against the likes of Christopher Putz, Simon Mattsson, and Russia’s Alexander Shalkovski.
Ludvig Lindstrom of Sweden bowed out in fourth for €9,355, the tournament’s last four-figure prize.
Patrick Pedersen ran out of steam in third and helped himself to a €13,493 prize. The Dane’s exit left Nemeth heads-up against Donatas Elinauskas, and Nemeth sent his last opponent to the showers. Elinauskas banked €20,690 for his runner-up finish.
