GREEK VICTORY IN IRISH POKER OPEN
2015-04-07

Despite the presence of four top Irish players at the final table of the Paddy Power Irish Poker Open over the weekend, it was Greek player Ioannis Triantafyllakis who took the first place honours after a tough heads up with local player Kevin Killeen that included a two-way split agreement.

The Greek pro took home Euro 209,500 and a special satellite Sole Survivor bonus of Euro 50,000 for being the final online qualifier from Paddy Power, whilst Killeen claimed a well-earned Euro 192,500.

Over 300 hopefuls signed up for the Euro 3,500 buy-in main event, and after three days the final table formed, headed by chip leader and Irish poker legend Donnacha ODea; seated around the table were Killeen and Triantafyllakis, along with Declan Connolly, American player Michael Wang, Fergal Cawley, Baard Dahl from Norway and German pro Andreas Gann.

O'Dea was unable to hold his lead and was eliminated at fifth, and the heads up was decided when Connolly was bundled out at third for Euro 111,750, leaving Killeen and Triantafyllakis to fight it out for the main prize.

The two players worked out a chop agreement that ultimately gave Euro 209,500 to Triantafyllakis and Euro 192,500 to Killeen instead of the Euro 250,000 first prize and Euro 152,000 runner up pay-days on the original schedule.

Getting down to business with the Greek player in the lead, the two provided some entertaining poker for just over an hour before Triantafyllakis was able to eliminate his last opponent and claim the main prize.

Other pay-outs were:

Declan Connolly Euro 111,750
Michael Wang Euro 82,750
Donnacha ODea Euro 61,850
Fergal Cawley Euro 46,500
Baard Dahl Euro 35,250
Andreas Gann Euro 26,750




HIGH STAKES POKER PLAYER DOWN $1.3 MILLION
2013-09-16

High stakes online poker ace Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom hit a bad patch last week, finishing as the biggest loser on Full Tilt Poker's nosebleed virtual tables after a series of disastrous defeats.
Over the week, Blom dropped $1,366,606 in 12,031 hands over 210 sessions, far outstripping the next biggest loser, Gus 'The Great Dane' Hansen, who lost $666,808 in 4,212 hands over 53 sessions.
The chief beneficiary of Blom's involuntary generosity was Alex 'IReadYrSoul' Millar, to whom Blom 'donated' over $771,500, which helped Millar finish the week as the biggest winner.
Other big winners were Isaac Haxton and Phil Galfond, who $655,730 in 2,435 hands over 18 sessions, and $525,128 in 1,966 hands over 13 sessions respectively.
Never-say-die Blom was back at the nosebleeds as the new week started over the weekend, but fared little better, although he made a good start of it by relieving Kyl 'kpr16' Fray of $205,000 on the fixed-limit Omaha
Hi/Lo tables, according to reports on the High Stakes Data Base website.
But then he lost almost $55,000 of that playing the $400/$800 NLHE tables against the misleadingly named 'RookieNFL' before confronting 'Saniker' and dropping another $150,000 in less than ten minutes. The duo
tangled again later in the day, again in a NLHE clash on the $500/$1,000 tables, where Blom was again hammered, this time to the tune of $239,000.
