The Irish Open is THE longest running No Limit Texas Holdem tournament in Europe which makes it one of the most exciting and highly anticipated poker events in Europe! English poker pro Neil Channing took home the €801,400 top prize in 2008 and local hero Marty Smyth beat Roland de Wolfe in a monster heads-up battle to take home the 2007 title and €650,000.
Christer Johansson, Swedish professional player, won the 2009 Irish Open Main Event and Englishman James Mitchell won the 2010 top honors - at the age of 20 - both winning champions took home €600,000. The title returned to Ireland in 2011 when Niall Smyth took down €550,000 and the trophy.
