Dublin Ladies Championship
The €250 Dublin Ladies Championship took place on Saturday and seemed to be a very spirited affair, with lots of laughter and table chat buzzing throughout. Mary Seary took the trophy after a 3-way deal with Zola Zola and Jenny Steele. We’re not sure if Zola Zola is her real name, or if she lost to a runner runner. Congratulations Mary!

€250 PLO 7-Max (Saturday)
Omaha is a big thing here at the Irish Poker Festival and all the PLO events have been pretty well attended. Saturday’s edition was no exception, with 65 players four carding away in pursuit of one of the enormous Irish Poker Festival trophies. The honour of receiving it and the logistical nightmare of getting home fell to Frenchman Elie Nakache, who received €5,500 towards the shipping costs.
