Haven’t done a blog in a while, mainly cause there’s been nothing really to report. Kinda just been treading water. Win a little lose a little, all in all been a break even few weeks despite playing quite a bit. Although I suppose that’s an improvement. I had backed USA for a bit in the golf, so that was a pretty sicking Sunday. My time here in Australia is over. I am home on Monday and it will be straight into the IPO. There’s also the Irish Poker Awards being given out at the IPO and this is the way I will be voting. Given that this has not been done for 2 years I am making my picks on the last 2 years.
Best Tournament Player
Big Mick G – Always up there on the pocket 5′s ranking and was 1st for a good while. This backed up with a mountain of lives cashes makes it an easy choice.
Best online player
Close one between Jude and Seamus. Serious achievement by Seamus making supernova elite playing cash games. However I just went for Jude by a whisker.
Best Cash player
For me this was a one horse race. Dermot live or line is head and shoulders above the others.
Break out year
The Irish open would of been enough but also winning Kilarney makes Niall Symth the only choice.
Best poker Blogger
Pity David Lappin wasn’t put in as he blog is entertaining. Padraig’s are entertaining so will give him the nod.
Best tournament director
Very tight one but on the back of Norweign masters I gave it to Jp.
Best social media
Not sure we should be given an award for spamming but few spam harder than Chris Dowling.
Irish poker player of the year
A couple of Wsop’s ft’s one being a main. Always in the big cash games makes Eoghan O’ Dea the man for me.
Fitz the only one I am ever really in.
Hall of fame
The Don first man in the European Hall of fame. Whats good for the goose is good for the gander.
