Ryan Mandara Wins Irish Poker Open Main Event


The partypoker 2018 Irish Poker Open €1,150 buy-in Main Event kicked off on 14th March at the Citywest Hotel, Dublin, and a winner was declared by 18th March. The €1 million GTD event saw 1,340 entries which crushed the guarantee and created a new prizepool of €1,347,164. 1,129 entries were recorded in the same event in 2017.

The 2018 event was shipped by United Kingdom’s Ryan Mandara, who struck a head’s up deal with Ireland’s Ferdia O’Connell, earning the title and pocketing €210,000 (~INR 1.68 crore) for the top prize. Mandara had under $100k in live poker earnings before this event, but that multiplied after this big win. The heads up deal saw €40k deducted from the winner’s original prize.

Interestingly, the runner up O’Connell bagged €180,000 for the second place after qualifying from a €0.01 buy-in satellite on partypoker, ending with an ROI of 1,799,999,900%. Imagine what a hot run that would’ve been for this poker player, who also recorded a career best live cash!

Going in to heads up, Mandara had a lead of 23 million chips, compared to O’Connell’s 17 million. The action ended when both players went all-in pre-flop on one hand. After the flop, O’Connell was in the lead with a 2-pair, but the turn saw Mandara getting a higher pair. The river card was a blank and Mandara walked away with the title and the cash prize of €210,000. His winning cards were Q-J!

A total of 167 players were paid out in this event, with a min-cash of €2,125. Final results:

  1. Ryan Mandara – €210,000
  2. Ferdia O’Connell – €180,000
  3. Pascal Baumgartner – €100,000
  4. Dan Samson – €75,000
  5. Joseph Cahill – €55,000
  6. Sameer Singh – €42,500
  7. Daniel Fargher – €32,000
  8. Dean Clay – €23,000
