Apologies for no updates throughout the day. Connie actually had me dealing a few cards so naturally my head was wrecked.

Final table time:

Ronan Gilligan 565500
Diarmuid Ryan 345500
Peter Searle 257000
Nicky Power 243500
Derek Murray 206000
Tony Cooney 166500
Fintan Gavin 133500
Tim Farrelly 119500
Sean O' Riordan 99500

The final table will be starting back at 2pm.

They are doing back to the 2000-4000 level with 10 minutes left on the level.

The Average stack is 236,000 so a serious amount of play left for this final table.

Trevor Dineen and Alex Tihkiniouk were the unfortunate bubble-boys as they were bust out in the same hand on different tables. Trevor was on my table as I dealt and he ran his 10 bigs with K-4 into Fintans K-Q blind on blind.

Prize-pool

1st 20,000
2nd 12.000
3rd 8,000
4th 6,000
5th 4,500
6th 3,500
7th 2,500
8th 2,000
9th 1,500



37 buyins for the 200 game with Doke, Big Al, Mash, Aidan McCallister, George McKeever and Paul Carr in for a slice of the 6,660 prize pool.

1st 2500
2nd 1750
3rd 1200
4th 800
5th 410

7 left in the €200 side event. they ARE:

James Walsh.(Galway)
Tom Hanley (Newcastlewest)
gary Kerrisk (Cue Club Killarney)
Dara "Doke" Kearney.
Aidan McAllister (N.I.)
Alan "Big Al" Kelliher (Cork)
Damien "Damo" Burke (Cue Club Killarney)

Tom looks to be the chip leader by a long way, with the other 6 all similarly stacked (Maybe doke is the shortest, but whats new about that grinder)

I'll post results later, they are playing for a prizepool of €6,660.

We lose our 1st player on the FT when peter Searle from West Cork exits in brutal fashion. In a sb v bb confrontation, and both player having approx 50 bb's each (blinds 2000-4000, both playing 200k+):
Folded to Peter in the sb, and he limps into Derek Murray. Derek raises to 10,000, and Peter calls.
Flop is Q-J-2 rainbow. Peter leads for 12000, Derek 3 bets to 29000, Peter 4-bets to 67000 and Derek 5 bet shoves and Peter calls.
Derek turns over K-K, while Peter tables Q-J for top 2. The 9 of clubs on the turn made no difference, but the 2h on the river changed everything and Derek counterfeits Peters 2 pair. Derek had a few more chips than Peter, so Peter exits in pretty brutal fashion.

Fintan Gavin just doubled through Derek Murray to approx 400k. Derek raised with 88, Fintan r/r's with 10-10 and Derek calls.
Flop is 5-6-7 and all the loots go in the middle, the board blanks out and Fintan has a nice 80 bb stack now.

Blinds 2500-5000 with a 500 ante, average stack is 265,000. 40 mins left in the level and we remain 8 handed.

And we are down to 7 when Sean o Riordan shoved 70k with AJ and is called by Fintan Gavin holding AK. A king on the flop seals the deal and Sean exits in 8th getting 2,000 for his efforts.

Fintan gavin is the Macaus Irish Classic champion 2014.

Official result:

1---Fintan Gavin

2---Diarmuid Ryan

3---Tony Cooney

4---derek Murray

5--Nicky Power

6--Tim Farrelly

7---Ronan Gilligan

8---Sean o Riordan

9---peter searle

Id like to congratulate Fintan on his success. It was a very strong final Table which I think was indicitive of the structure of the game. At no time did the average stack dip below 40 x bb's, in fact it remained close to 50 big blinds throughout the FT and at heads up, the average was 90 big blinds.
I like to thank everybody for participating, especially those that travelled for the weekend. A special word of thanks to Donal MacAongusa, a good friend and an excellent TD. He really has a great way with players, and the relaxed atmosphere in the cardroom over the 4 days was really enjoyable for both players and staff. (Can i also thank the dealers who traveled to work here at the festival.)

I remember back a good few years ago when the Irish Classic in the Macau was considered one of the must play events of the year. If Im to believe the positive comments from the players this week, then I think we are on our way to recreating that special event again.

thanks again
