The Irish Poker Open is Europe's longest running No Limit Texas Hold'em poker tournament, touted as being the second longest running in the world - second only to the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. The 2012 paddypowerpoker.com Irish Open was won by Kevin Vandersmissen from Belgium.
Vandersmissen took home €420,000 after beating 501 players at the Burlington Hotel in Dublin.
