The Irish Poker Masters Main Event has reached its official nine-handed final table and what a final table it has turned out to be. Nine excellent poker players from around the world have made it to the finale and are now only eight eliminations away from becoming the IPM Main Event champion and securing a bumper €215,163 payday. They lock horns under the watchful eye of the official partypoker Twitch channel.
Manuel Ruivo is the man to catch when the first cards are pitched at 19:05 GMT. The Netherlands-based grinder has 87,913,820 chips in his stack and will likely be the first player to break through the 100 million barrier.
Ruivo has already won a massive prize online at partypoker thanks to chopping the 2018 MILLIONS Online for more than $2.3 million. Only last night, he finished third in the WSOP Main Event live final table at King’s Casino, Rozvadov and banked more than $700,000. It’s fair to say Ruivo is in solid form.
He may hold the chip lead currently but the pack chasing Ruivo is full of talented grinders who are most certainly still in contention for the title of champion.
Sweden’s Anton Siden returns in second place courtesy of a 60,930,660 stack while Finnish high stakes specialist Samuel Vousden has 31,262,814 betting tokens at the restart, enough for third place.
Slightly behind Vousden, with 27,983,782 chips, you find Dutchman Luc Van Der Beek before Julien Perouse and his 17,712,874 take up fifth-place.
There’s no doubt Dante Fernandes (15,566,432) will have raucous support in the Twitch chat while he represents Brazil at the final table. Brazilians are well known for railing their fellow countrymen at major final table, this one should be no different.
The United Kingdom’s Will Kassouf, who won his seat in this event for only €109, returns in seventh place with 13,604,600. Adding a few more chips to his stack will give him the freedom to bluff with nine-high like a boss.
Two players sit back down with short stacks of 11 big blinds. Germany’s Michael Deinlein has 6,658,170 chips while Jessica Teusl is representing the ladies of poker. Teusl has a stack of 6,566,848 chips at her disposal.
