Staples and Tsalavoutas Reach Two Irish Open Online Final Tables

7 months ago

The first four of ten Irish Open Online champions have been crowned and although Team Online’s Matthew Staples and Georgios Tsalavoutas have not managed to bag themselves a title, both players have reached two final tables each.

Staples reached the final table of the opening event, the €150 Deepstack PKO. Some 361 players bought in and Staples outlasted almost all of them before bowing out in sixth place for a combined score worth €1,003. Staples was not the only orange diamond at that final table because Patrick Leonard navigated his way to a third-place finish worth €2,266.

Brazil’s Henrique Batista took down the tournament and padded his bankroll with €8,398, which gives him plenty of ammunition for the rest of the series.

Irish Open Online #02 8-Max PKO Final Table Results

Tsalavoutas first final table appearance came in the €250 8-Max PKO. The Greek grinder bulldozed his way to a third-place finish that tipped the scales at €5,419. Tsalavoutas eliminated ten opponents before he ran out of steam, which meant €1,824 of his prize stemmed from bounties; only the eventual champion, Irishman and former Irish Open Main Event champion Daniel Wilson, accumulated more bounty cash.

Irish Open Online #03 6-Max PKO Final Table Results

Tsalavoutas’ second final table came the following day in a €350 6-Max PKO event. He was not as prolific in busting opponents this time around, sending only two to the showers, but he still managed to finish in fourth place for a €3,157 payday.

We have to give a mention to third-place finisher Peter Kaae of Denmark who left 14 opponents in his wake before he crashed out. Kaae reeled in €3,065 from the bounty prize pool and a total payout worth €7,098, which was more than Dominik Maeder banked for their runner-up finish!

Congratulations to Benjamin Bauermeister who won the tournament for €15,647, the largest haul of the Irish Open Online so far.

It was a tough six-handed final table that saw Patrick Lauber dust off his stack in sixth place, and former Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur defender Anthony Gardner finish in fourth.
