|The Irish Poker Championships saw former snooker champion, Steve Davis, take home €13,500 in winnings in one of its of the smaller, side tournaments. The final table was a marathon 16 hour sitting, which started on Sunday and finally finished at 7am the following morning.|
Davis wasn’t the only snooker player at the Boylepoker.com championships that took place in Dublin last weekend, with snooker colleagues Alex Higgins Ken and Doherty also in the mix to win some of the prize money. Unfortunately, for the other members of the snooker turned poker player fraternity, neither advanced past the Saturday games.
A student from Cork was the winner of the main event, taking home a healthy purse of €150,000.
