Fintan Gavin is a 46 year old events manager from Galway, Ireland. He's been playing poker for a long time all over Europe, live tournaments being his speciality. His biggest cash is €792,000 for finishing 2nd at the 2008 Barcelona EPT, although he also has a UKIPT title on his resume, having won UKIPT Edinburgh in 2011. Were he to win the tournament, he said he'd “open up the post and pay off all the bills.”
Gavin really enjoys the UKIPT as, "the atmosphere is really special, the dealers are great and there's a real buzz about the place." As for his strategy for tomorrow, he said, "These guys are experts, I'll have to up my aggression levels and play more hands to stand a chance."
